Pens vs. Blues good under opportunity?
The Blues are banged up and their biggest scoring threat is in a funk - will the under cash for bettors when St. Louis hosts the Penguins tonight at 8:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Blues are -135 money line favorites over the Penguins, who are +115 money line underdogs for tonight's game. The total currently sits at 5 goals.
Vladimir Tarasenko is among the league leaders in goals with 24 but he hasn't scored in five straight games and has only racked up two goals in his last 11 contests. While the Blues are expected to get Jay Bouwmeester back tonight, Carl Gunnarsson isn't ready to return from an upper-body injury and St. Louis is dealing with a total of six injured players at the moment.
The under is 9-3-4 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams and 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings in St. Louis. The under is also 15-6-7 in the Blues' last 28 home games and 6-1 in the Penguins' last seven games playing on no rest.
