This is a 1* free play on the "over" between the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames on Wednesday night (10:05 EST).

These teams have played twice this year: Calgary won 4-3 at home, before the Oilers won 4-1 in Edmonton two nights ago. It's the grudge match in the "Battle for Alberta", and I believe the gloves come off, and the red light comes on between these divisional foes. Edmonton is 15-13-7 overall, and just 7-8-3 on the road. The Oilers have won four straight though, and have not played since the win over the Flames on Monday (note that Edmonton has outscored its competition 17-5 during its win streak). Calgary is 13-17-4 overall, and 10-6-2 at home. The Flames have lost two straight, and things certainly don't get any easier with a back-to-back set in San Jose and Vancouver respectively on Friday/Saturday, before finishing the three game trip in Colorado on Monday (note that Calgary has seen the total go "over" the number in 12 of 18 this year in revenging a loss vs. an opponent, and in six of ten after scoring 1 goal or less in its previous contest). For the most part, my "totals plays" are based on situations, and in this case, I definitely the feel the table is set for a higher-scoring affair. Consider a second look at the over in this one.
