Will the Sharks drown in the River City vs the Blues?

The St. Louis Blues opened as a -150 favorite at home to knock off the San Jose Sharks tonight. The Blues are trying to avoid losing their fourth game in a row, which would be their longest losing streak of the season.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 15 of the Blues’ last 19 games at home.
  • The Sharks are 5-1 ATS in their last six games on the road vs the Blues.
  • Brent Burns is second in scoring among NHL defensemen with 50 points.

The Sharks have won four of their last five games and have started to make a push in the Western Conference playoff race. San Jose has jumped to fourth in the West with a record of 6-3 SU in nine games in February and should make it a challenge for the Blues to rebound at home.  

But as well as the Sharks have been playing, they haven’t had much luck against St. Louis recently as they’ve dropped three straight vs the Blues and were outscored 11-3 in those games.

St. Louis is coming off three days’ rest and the Blues have been lacking their scoring punch during their most recent losing streak, only notching five goals in three games. This skid has dropped St. Louis to a wild-card spot in the crowded conference standings. The good news if you plan to back the Blues tonight is they’re 4-2 SU in their last six games at Scottrade Center and as mentioned have showed up vs the Sharks.

The total opened at 5 and an UNDER may be the best wager in this tilt. The Sharks and Blues both rank in the top 10 in fewest goals allowed per game and the UNDER has hit in five straight San Jose road games.
