Stars vs. Flames: Game 7 prediction

Goal Line: Stars +1.5 (-155); Flames -1.5 (+135)
DAL: +160
CGY: -190
Over/Under: Over 5.5 (+115); Under 5.5 (-135)

The aggregate goal count for this series has been Flames 12, Stars 12. It’s been that tight of a series. I still believe that Darryl Sutter’s risk averse playoff structure has made this series closer than it should have been, but we’re here now and it feels like the first goal Sunday will win the game and the series.

Pick: Flames (-190)
Side Bet: Under 5.5 (-135)
