NHL Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Blues are 5-1 in their last six Wednesday games. St. Louis is 20-6 in its last 26 games as an underdog. 

Pittsburgh

The Penguins are 131-61 in their last 192 home games. Pittsburgh is 9-3 in its last 12 games versus the Western Conference.

Prediction:

The Blues are on a roll a bit indicative of their Stanley Cup run last season and after trampling the Penguins over the weekend, I'm going right back to the well today. It will likely be Binnington back in goal tonight despite Allen being sensational last start. Either way the Blues turn is a good plan it seems with the way they are playing in front of their goalie. I'm taking St. Louis to win a fifth in a row tonight.
