NHL Betting Trends
The over is 3-0-1 in the last four Blues games versus the Central Division. The over is 4-0 in the last four St. Louis games on Mondays.
The Jets are 9-2 in the last 11 meetings. The under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings.
St. Louis looked outstanding Saturday night and Allen was solid in net with the defense in front of him limiting the amount of shots he had to withstand from the high-powered Maple Leafs offense. I'm going to take a shot on the Blues building from that and earning another key road win tonight.
