Ottawa is 17-42 in their last 59 games overall and 14-52 in their last 66 road games while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games overall. Calgary is 3-7 in their last 10 games overall and 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home favorite while the over is 5-2-1 in their last 8 Sunday games. The over is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I’m having a hard time on the side here because we’ve seen the good and the bad from both, but the one thing that we have seen from both sides is scoring and at times shoddy goaltending as the puck’s been picked out of the net more often than not on both sides. I’m leaning towards the over in this one, but realistically otherwise, I’m not going near this game with other options on the board.
