Betting On The Calgary Flames
As with betting on any Canadian team in the NHL, bettors always have to be aware of a small bias sportsbooks tend to place on popular teams. Odds makers know that NHL teams in Canadian cities will attract a lot of betting attention from local fans and the average bettor and potentially put premium prices out there on teams like the Flames.
Knowing that can really help you when you are looking at Calgary Flames betting lines for their next game, no matter which side you are leaning towards.
After a run to the Cup Finals in 2004, there were many lean years for the Flames and bettors took full advantage by going against an aging team. It wasn’t until the turn of the decade that Calgary made a philosophical change to go younger and completely rebuild, and it remains to be seen what the ceiling is for this new core in Calgary.
One thing is for certain though, with talented young scorers like Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau and Sam Bennett added to the team in recent years, the future is bright for Calgary and perhaps paying those premiums to back the Flames will pay off for bettors very soon.
