LINE MOVEMENT

St. Louis opened as a -180 favorite before the line dropped significantly, while the total was originally at 5.5 goals before falling. The Blues can still be found as high as a -160 favorite at certain books and Detroit a +140 underdog. The total is at 5 pretty much everywhere, but there is a lot of juice on the over at most books.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 53 percent of public bets have sided with the Blues. Online wager info also shows that 67 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Red Wings defenseman Mike Green is out indefinitely with a neck injury. For the Blues, right winger Nikita Soshnikov is questionable with an upper body injury.

BETTING STRATEGY

St. Louis has been abysmal lately, nothing worse than the 8-3 blowout loss it suffered at the Wild last night. But the Red Wings might be the right antidote with Carter Hutton expected to be in goal. The Blues won the lone meeting 6-1 in Detroit back in December and have won three of the last four in the series. The lone loss by St. Louis came in a shootout. Losing streaks have to end sometime and the Blues are too talented to be this bad for this long.
