Blues vs. Jets Free Pick
WINNIPEG, MANITOBA (The Spread) – One night after beating the Blackhawks for the second time this season, will the Blues suffer a letdown tonight when they travel to Winnipeg to battle the Jets at 8:00PM ET?
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Blues are -121 money line favorites over the Jets, who are +112 on the ML. The over/under total is currently sitting at 5.5 goals for tonight’s matchup.
LINE MOVEMENT: The Blues opened as -119 money line favorites but their odds have climbed to -121, while the Jets’ odds have gone from +110 up to +112. St. Louis enters play with a 5-1-0 record and is 1-0-0 on the year, while Winnipeg is 3-4-0 and 2-3-0 at home.

NHL FREE PICK: Take Winnipeg. According to latest NHL trends, the Blues are 1-5 in their last six road games and 3-7 in their lat 10 games in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation. Ken Hitchcock’s squad is coming off an emotional, hard-fought victory over the Blackhawks last night in Chicago and now have to turn around and play a Winnipeg team that is clearly a downgrade in talent. Look for a sore, road-weary Blues squad to be caught looking ahead to a long break (they won’t play again until next Friday) when they play the Jets tonight.
