Will Blues continue to be solid road bet vs Flames?

The St. Louis Blues will be in Calgary tonight to play the Flames and look to rebound after falling to Winnipeg on Sunday. The Blues are on game 2 of their four-game road trip through Western Canada and have been a decent bet on the road this season. St. Louis is 10-6 SU away from Scottrade Center and opened as a slight road dog in this matchup.

SHARK BITES
  • The Flames are 0-5 SU in their last five games vs teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Blues’ last five games.
  • St. Louis is 13-6 SU in its last 19 games vs Calgary.

The Flames have hit a bit of a skid in December and are 3-6 SU in nine games this month. Calgary ranks 20th in the NHL in goal scoring in the month of December, averaging 2.6 per game, and is 2-4 SU at home in the last six games. Top forwards Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan are ice-cold, only notching seven points combined in the last eight games after a hot start that saw the duo land in the top 10 in NHL scoring. The only saving grace for Flames backers is they are 4-2 SU in their last six games vs St. Louis.

The Blues have also had some rough luck in the last week. After dropping three of their last four games, they got more bad news when defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was placed back on IR. He’ll join winger Jaden Schwartz in the stands while they get healed up for the stretch run after the holiday break. It’s too bad because St. Louis needs a jump with its offense. In the month of December, the Blues are only averaging 2.1 goals per game, which is 29th in the NHL. The silver lining, though, is The Lou is stopping goals at the same rate as they’re scoring them as they only have allowed 2.2 goals per game this month (ranked sixth). Bettors will also be interested to know that St. Louis is 2-4 SU in its last six games in Calgary.
