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.
