Surging Blues Host Sharks Monday

San Jose Sharks St. Louis Blues NHL

The St. Louis Blues have won five-straight games and are making things incredibly interesting in the hyper-competitive Central Division. The Blues now sit just two points back of the division-leading Chicago Blackhawks and host the San Jose Sharks Monday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games vs the Pacific Division.
  • The Sharks are 3-1 SU in their last four road games.
  • The Sharks are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games vs the Western Conference.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Blues at -125 and the Sharks at -105 in moneyline markets. As for the total, OVER 5 goals is -125 and UNDER 5 goals is -105.

The Blues have been on fire since the All-Star break going 7-2 SU and have been one of the rare teams to cash for UNDER bettors since hockey returned from the hiatus. While the rest of the league cashes OVER tickets at a great clip, the UNDER has gone 6-2-1 in nine Blues’ games. That said, they exploded for six goals in a 6-4 victory at Arizona their last time out.

The Sharks had a three-game winning streak halted when they lost 5-2 at the Carolina Hurricanes Friday. They sit third in the Pacific Division and look like they are on pace for postseason appearance, barring a massive collapse or an unlikely surge from a team below them like the Arizona Coyotes.

The Sharks posted a 3-1 victory the last two time these clubs met back on February 4 but the Blues throttled them 7-2 in the previous two meetings in January of last season.

With the Hawks and Stars within striking distance, the Blues are in prime position to make things even more interesting in the league’s best division.
