Red Wings Have Given St. Louis the Blues

David Backes Henrik Zetterberg Blues Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings will be reacquainted with an old foe when they host the St. Louis Blues at Joe Louis Arena Wednesday evening. The Wings, who have won four-straight meetings with the Blues, are -125 moneyline favorites against their old Central Division rival, while the visitors are -105.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 7-1 in the last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Red Wings are 16-5 in their last 21 games vs the Central Division.
  • The Blues are 2-6 in their last eight games with one days’ rest between games.

The Wings performed incredibly well during a six-game road trip to begin January, winning five games and losing just one. The Philadelphia Flyers spoiled their return home with a 2-1 shootout victory in their last game Saturday.

As mentioned, it’s been all Red Wings when these two teams take the ice in recent contests. Over the course of those four meetings, Detroit has outscored St. Louis 12-6 while the UNDER has cashed in three of the four. The Wings skated to a 4-3 win in the last meeting back on November 21.

The Blues are doing all that they can to keep up with the red-hot Chicago Blackhawks in the Central Division. As Chicago grabs the headlines with a franchise record 12-game winning streak, the Blues sit seven points back and take a modest two-game streak of their own into Joe Louis.

According to the Red Wings’ official twitter account, it will be Petr Mrazek who gets the start in the crease. Mrazek has been lights out versus the Blues in his career, winning three games in four appearances and boast a 1.12 goals against average and .956 save percentage heading into Wednesday's contest.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Detroit Red Wings were listed earlier today as -115 moneyline favorites at most sportsbooks tracked by Odds Shark (including Bovada), while odds makers set the opening betting total around 5.
