The Flames followed up on Monday’s 7-1 home win over the Blues with a record-setting performance in a lopsided 6-0 victory in Columbus on Wednesday. The Blues have been idle since Monday’s loss in Calgary, which put the brakes on a three-game win streak.

Despite their recent dominant performances, the Flames travel to St. Louis as +114 road underdogs. The Blues are perched as -137 home favourites. The total is set 6.0, with the OVER slightly favoured with -115 odds.

Flames vs. Blues NHL Betting Odds

Thursday night’s matchup at Enterprise Center marks the second of three regular season meetings between these Western Conference rivals. Monday’s clash at Scotiabank Saddledome was the first date between these clubs in two years, and with the win, the Flames snapped a four-game head-to-head losing streak. Calgary has enjoyed some success on the road, posting wins in three of their past six visits to St. Louis. Recent dates between these teams in St. Louis have tended to be lopsided affairs. The Blues marched to a 5-0 win in the Flames last visit in November 2019, while Calgary recorded a 7-2 win in their previous road date. That extends a four-game head-to-head trend in which at least one of these teams has scored at least five goals, fueling a 3-1-1 run for the OVER in totals betting.

The Flames have averaged 5.25 goals over their past four outings after scoring more than three goals just twice over their previous 10 contests. However, they have won just three of nine on the road, with five of those defeats coming by multi-goal margins. While Monday’s loss in Calgary marks their worst defeat of the season, the Blues have avoided consecutive losses during a steady 13-4-1 run that features nine wins in 11 home dates.

The Flames saw a pair of franchise records smashed in Wednesday’s win over the Blue jackets. Calgary’s 62 shots on goal set a team record, and also marks the most shots recorded by a single NHL team in regulation time in three decades. Goaltender Jacob Markstrom set a new club standard with his fourth road shutout of the season. But with the team playing on consecutive nights on the road, look for Daniel Vladar to get the start against the Blues. Up front, Johnny Gaudreau contributed three assists on Wednesday, and has now racked up two goals and 12 helpers during a six-game points streak.

St. Louis Blues

While the Blues have consistently padded the win column, they showed signs of faltering in the final two dates of their recent three-game road trip. The club has averaged just 19 shots on goal over their past two outings, and tallied 30 or more just once in their past six outings. Ryan O’Reilly has managed to remain productive, particularly on home ice, where he has potted four goals and four assists over his past five appearances.
