Predators look to knock off blistering Blues

The Nashville Predators will look to cement their place amongst the Western Conference elite when they land in St. Louis to face-off versus the Blues. The Predators have been on a tear in November, going 8-2 SU and putting the league on notice that last year’s Stanley Cup final run was not a fluke. Nashville opened as +123 road dogs in the River City.

SHARK BITES
  • The Predators are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road against the Blues.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Blues' last five games.
  • The Predators are 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five games against teams with winning records.

Being an underdog on the road is nothing new for Smashville. They have only been favored once on the road this season and collected away victories against Los Angeles and Columbus during the month of November. They’ve also had recent success versus St. Louis, going 4-2 SU in their last six games in this matchup. If they can seal the deal tonight in the Lou, they should immediately jump into the top-five in most experts’ rankings in the NHL.

The Blues, on the other hand, are the top dog in the Western Conference and are studs at home at 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS this season. They have dropped some stinkers in the month of November to the Flyers and the Islanders so they can be beaten at Scottrade Center. The Blues moneyline opened at -133 to get the W and it may be the safest pick for bettors but if you’re looking for the homerun wager, take the Blues -1.5 puckline, which opened at +220.

The total opened at 5.5 goals and the OVER looks like a gimme for bettors. The OVER has hit in seven of the Blues’ ten home games this season and they currently rank in the top five in scoring in the NHL at 3.55 goals per game. The total has also gone OVER in five of Nashville’s last six games and they rank in the top ten in goals, burying 3.24 goals per game.
