Predators Have Been an Excellent Source of UNDERs

The St. Louis Blues were staring down the barrel of a 2-0 series deficit in Game 2 vs the Nashville Predators, but superstar forward Vladimir Tarasenko saved the day by scoring twice and leading the Blues to a 3-2 victory to even up the Western Conference semifinal series heading into Sunday’s Game 3. Sportsbooks opened the Blues as +125 road underdogs with a total of 5.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings.
  • The Predators are 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games.
  • The UNDER is 5-2-1 in the Blues last 8 overall.

The Predators put St. Louis on the power-play five times without having one of their own in Game 2, so it’s going to be key for them to stay out of the box in this one. The Blues haven’t done much with the man advantage, however, going 2-for-21 on the power-play in seven postseason games.

Blues goaltender Jake Allen has been the driving force for the Blues’ late season success and in the early going in the playoffs. Allen stood tall when the stakes were at their highest by making 14 saves in the final 20 minutes after facing only nine shots in the first two periods.

The UNDER continues to be a solid wager when the Predators hit the ice, as the OVER/UNDER has gone 1-4 in Nashville’s last five games.
