Will the Oilers get payback vs the Blues?

The Edmonton Oilers are struggling and more pain may be coming when they land in St. Louis tonight. The Oilers lost a stinker at home to the Blues last week and the River City squad is currently at the top of the Western Conference with 31 points. The Oilers opened as +130 road dogs and have dropped four of their last five games.

  • The total has gone UNDER in the Oilers’ last four games against the Blues.
  • The Oilers are 0-7 SU in their last seven games with two days off between games.
  • St. Louis is 1-4 ATS in its last five games.

Edmonton may be the biggest disappointment in the NHL. The Oilers were supposed to make another leap into the upper tier in the West but Connor McDavid and company haven’t recaptured the magic that took them to the playoffs last year for the first time since 2006. Edmonton is in the bottom five in goals scored per game (2.5) and bottom 10 in goals allowed (3.2), which means they will be in tough against a Blues team that is 7-2 SU at home.

Speaking of the Blues, it’s still business as usual for the Lou. They’ve gone 9-3 SU in their last 12 games and as favorites are 10-4 SU this season. The Blues moneyline doesn’t offer much value so bettors looking for an edge may want to consider their -1.5 puckline. The Blues’ puckline record at home is 6-3 and it opened at +215.

The total opened at 5.5 and the OVER looks promising. The OVER has hit in three of St. Louis’ last four games and as I mentioned, Edmonton allows over three goals per game this season. When you factor in that the Blues are averaging 3.6 goals per game in their nine home games, an OVER should come to fruition.
