The Flames are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The Jets are 9-4 in their last 13 home games and 5-1 in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 12-4-3 in Flames last 19 road games. The over is 4-1 in Jets last 5 home games. The favorite is 13-6 in the last 19 meetings. The home team is 14-6 in the last 20 meetings.
It's usually a competitive contest when the Flames and Jets meet, so you can make a case for either side here. However, the Jets are playing the better hockey and have a decent edge on the offensive side. The Jets also beat the Flames this season already, coming back after giving up three goals in the first period. The Jets are just never out of a game with this offensive firepower. I'll back the home team.
