Blues vs. Jets Pick
Oddsmakers have set the Jets as a -140 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Blues are a +120 underdog, while the over-under is set at 5.5 goals.
The Blues come in with a 22-10-2-0 record after a 2-0 home victory over the Jets on Saturday night. Winnipeg is 18-10-5-0 following the loss to St. Louis. Winnipeg had won the previous five meetings since the start of last season and the last six meetings overall. The over is 3-2-1 since the start of last season.
Carter Hutton turned away all 48 shots sent his way in the win over the Jets. St. Louis received goals from Vladimir Tarasenko and Vince Dunn, while Tarasenko also dished out an assist. The goal by Tarasenko came on the power play midway through the first period, while Dunn added the insurance tally with 2:36 left in regulation. For Winnipeg, Steve Mason recorded 28 saves on 30 shots.
St. Louis is 7-0 in its last seven games in the second end of a home-and-home situation. Winnipeg is 6-0 in its last six Sunday games.
For whatever reason, the Blues are great in the second leg of home-and-home series. Coming off a shutout win over the Jets last night, expect the Blues to keep the foot on the pedal tonight with Jake Allen in net as they would love to turn the tides in this series after struggling mightily the previous six meetings before Saturday.
