Road Sides are a Poor Bet When Predators & Blues Meet

The St. Louis Blues have been extremely inconsistent in the 2016-17 NHL season, but they’re starting to turn the corner now. Next up on the docket is a home date with the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
  • The Predators are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in St. Louis.
  • The Blues are 5-1 in their last 6 home games.

Oddsmakers initially set the Blues as -128 favorites with an OVER/UNDER of 5.

The Predators started the year at 3-5-3, but they’ve since won four of five including a 5-1 hammering of the Ottawa Senators on Thursday. Goaltender Pekka Rinne has been the main reason for Nashville’s resurgence, as the netminder has allowed more than two regulation goal once in eight games this month.

Nashville’s power-play has been awful lately, and the Blues are excellent at preventing goals with the man advantage. The Preds are 1-for-19 on the power-play over the past six games, while the Blues have surrendered two power-play goals in 44 chances at home.
