Calgary is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 15-7 in their last 22 games as a favorite while the under is 5-0-1 in their last 6 games following a win. Ottawa is 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 16-40 in their last 56 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog. Calgary is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I get why the Sens and the plus money is tempting, but these Senators are the blind squirrel that finds a nut every once in a while, and I think the nut against the Flames went out the window on Saturday and another one is going bye bye on Monday. Look for the Flames to really put the hammer down here and lay it to the Senators. Give me Calgary -1.5 in this one.
