Bet NHL Action For Thursday, March 8, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

San Jose opened as a -145 favorite before the line tightened slightly. The over-under has not budged from 5.5 goals. The Sharks range from a -136 to a -140 favorite depending on the book, while St. Louis is between a +120 and +126 underdog. The total is at 5.5 everywhere.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 60 percent of public bets are coming in on the Sharks. Online wager info also says that 61 percent of bets are being placed on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson (illness) and right winger Nikita Soshnikov (neck) are both questionable to play tonight. For San Jose, Joel Ward (shoulder) and Joe Thornton (knee) are both out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Blues lost 3-2 to the Sharks in St. Louis on Feb. 20, but had won the three previous meetings. St. Louis has not been playing good hockey as of late with losses in eight of its last nine games, but perhaps has turned a corner recently with a couple solid showings in a 2-1 home win over the Red Wings and a 3-2 overtime loss at the Stars. San Jose had recent back-to-back impressive wins, albeit against weak competition at home, as it blasted the Oilers 5-2 and the Blackhawks 7-2. But surrounding those two victories were four losses. The Sharks are vulnerable right now and the Blues are playing desperate hockey. Take the plus money here.
