2010 NHL Picks and Predictions for Thursday December 16

ST. LOUIS, MO (TheSpread) – The St. Louis Blues look to get out of the cellar of the Central Division on Thursday when they host the Los Angeles Kings. Here is a breakdown of my pick for this game.

The Kings are 17-10-1 on the season for 35 points. They have scored 78 goals and allowed 65 on the year. They are 6-8-0 on the road and winners in 5 of their last 10.

The Blues are 14-10-5 on the year for 33 points. The Blues have scored 74 goals and allowed 80. They are 9-2-2 at home but have won just 3 of the last 10.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given St. Louis betting odds of +112 for tonight’s game while Los Angeles has been given odds of -121. The over/under for goals scored has been set at 5. Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.

Los Angeles Kings vs. St. Louis Blues, 8PM ET (View Matchup)

The Kings have won just 2 of their last 8 games in St. Louis and just 1 of their last 5 against the Blues overall. The under has hit in the last five games in St. Louis between these two teams. My pick is with the Blues at home as their standing in the division is partly due to them playing in a tough division. At home as an underdog, go with the Blues.
