NHL Betting Trends

Boston

The Bruins have won four games in a row. The over is 8-1-3 in the last 12 Boston games following a win. 

Calgary

The Flames are 3-13 in their last 16 Wednesday games. Calgary is 1-4 in the last five meetings.

Prediction:

Boston looks strong in the early going, but faces a tough test here on the road far away from home. Calgary has a strong home atmosphere, starting goalie Mike Smith will be in goal and the Flames are looking like a formidable squad so far this season. I'm going to go with the Flames to end the four-game win streak of the Bruins.
