The Flames are 8-3 in their last 11 vs. a team with a losing record and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Senators are 20-44 in their last 64 games following a win and 16-39 in their last 55 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Flames last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 5-2 in Senators last 7 home games. The favorite is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings.

The Calgary Flames aren't playing well enough to be favored, especially on the road. The Ottawa Senators have issues of their own and their recent winning streak certainly isn't sustainable. However, the Senators continue to win over the last week and a half and are cashing tickets in the underdog role. Until that stops, you kind of have to keep leaning toward the Senators, at the very least when they're playing another struggling team. Give me the plus money.
