Blues look to continue hot start against the Flames

The St. Louis Blues host the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night and the Blues are off to a hot start. After nine games, they’re leading the Central Division in the Western Conference and make an excellent moneyline play at -160 against the Flames.

Shark Bites
  • Calgary is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games against St. Louis.
  • St. Louis is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of St. Louis’ 9 games this season.

The Blues are coming off a three-day break between games and a tough OT road loss to the Golden Knights. Despite the loss, the Blues are 6-3 SU in nine games and are undefeated at home. Not to be outdone, the Flames are coming off a 3-2 win in Nashville on Tuesday and have an excellent early road record at 4-1 SU in five games this season.

Although the Flames are playing great away from the Scotiabank Saddledome to start the season, their recent visits to Scottrade Center have not been decent. Calgary is 2-7 SU in its last nine games playing at St. Louis.

Neither of these teams have made a great puckline play despite regular-season winning records. Both teams are 2-4 in their last six on the puckline, which means they don’t mind winning ugly.  Stick to the Blues moneyline, and don’t torture yourself.

The total opened at 5.5 between these two Western Conference adversaries and the OVER may be a sneaky play for bettors. St. Louis is averaging just over three goals per game this season and Calgary is floating around 2.5. Throw in the fact that St. Louis has scored nine goals in two home games and this contest could turn into a score-fest quickly.
