Detroit Red Wings vs Calgary Flames prediction

The Calgary Flames are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but you can make an argument the Red Wings have been the better team this season, even with the recent losing streak. The Red Wings pack more of a scoring punch, and they're one of the more profitable teams in the league. The Flames are a top-10 loser for bettors this season. The Red Wings have also won the last three games against the Flames, outscoring them 13-5 during that span. The value is with the Red Wings and the plus money. Give me the road team and the more favorable price.
