Blues Look to Take Edge on Bruins in Game 3

Bruins vs Blues Betting Odds June 1, 2019

The chants of ‘Gloria’ can be heard all the way from the River City as the St. Louis Blues host the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup final. The Blues stole Game 2 in Boston and now have home-ice advantage for the series. The Blues are 5-5 SU in 10 home games in the playoffs while the Bruins are 6-2 SU in eight road playoff games.

The Blues opened as -115 favorites with a total of 5.

Bruins vs Blues Game Center

STANDOUT STATS

  • Outside of the third period of Game 1, the Blues have been the aggressor through two games of this series. They’ve outhit the Blues 83-63 and were controlling the pace to the point where the Bruins couldn’t even get a shot in overtime in Game 2 at home.
  • The Blues are 5-5 SU in 10 playoff games at the Enterprise Center in the postseason but after winning Game 2, they now have home-ice advantage in the series. The Blues have outscored opponents 13-8 in their last four at home while winning three of those games.
  • Goaltender Jordan Binnington may be the best story in hockey right now. He owns a 2.60 goals-against-average in 10 home playoff games and in his last two starts at home in the playoffs, he only allowed two goals total on 56 shots.
  • Netminder Tuukka Rask may have gotten beaten in overtime in Game 2 but he has been sensational in these playoffs. He has a 1.90 goals-against-average in 19 playoff games to go with an excellent .939 save percentage. In his lone start in St. Louis this season back in February, he was stellar by stopping 28 shots and only allowing one goal in a shutout loss.
  • A lot of UNDER trends coming into this matchup as its hit in the Bruins’ last five road games (average combined score: 3.6) and in the last four games in Game 3 of a playoff series. It’s also worth noting that the UNDER has hit in four of the last six games in this matchup.

My Best Bet for Bruins vs Blues

Blues Moneyline

Losing another defenseman, the Bruins could be in trouble for Game 3. Matt Grzelcyk played key minutes for the Bruins throughout the playoffs but he’ll be out for this game due to a concussion.

That means Boston has to go into hostile territory down to five defensemen and that’s why I like the Blues to come out and push the pace. Outside of the third period in Game 1, St. Louis has been the dominant team in this series and I have no problem backing them to get their second ever win in a Stanley Cup final.
