Bet on Blackhawks vs. Blues

The Blackhawks are struggling on the road in recent history. They are just 1-6 in their last seven on the road and 2-5 in their last seven with extended rest. The Blues are 10-4 in their last 14 home games and 11-3 in their last 14 after scoring two goals or less in their previous game. The public likes the Blackhawks on the road, but I think St. Louis will come through at home.
