Will Panthers continue to be an awful road bet vs Blues?

Betting on the Florida Panthers on the road this season has been a fool’s errand. The Panthers are 7-15 SU away from their barn and have dropped three straight away games. They will look to end this streak tonight when they face the St. Louis Blues, who have been excellent at Scottrade Center at 15-8 SU.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Panthers’ last 17 games on the road.
  • Brayden Schenn leads the Blues with 43 points.
  • Florida is 2-4 ATS in its last six games.

The Panthers are heavy dogs in this matchup and rightfully so. They’ve dropped 11 of their last 14 games in the River City. Defensively, Florida hasn’t been great either, ranking 25th in goals allowed and allowing 12 goals in its last three games.

Although the Blues have won three straight, they’re desperate to get Jaden Schwartz back in the lineup. Since the winger went down with a foot injury, St. Louis has struggled and has gone 6-9 SU. Luckily, he is reported to be off crutches and should return shortly after their bye week coming up on Wednesday.

Totals bettors may want to anticipate an UNDER in this matchup as the UNDER has hit in seven of the last 10 games between these two squads. When you factor in that the UNDER has hit in 12 of the Blues’ last 15 games, it may be a snoozefest in St. Louis.

Betting fans looking to side with the St. Louis Blues in this one found them earlier as -155 favorites on the NHL moneyline at Bet365. Betting the OVER/UNDER total instead? It was hovering near 5.5 at its open earlier today at BetOnline and may have moved.
