St. Louis vs Winnipeg: prediction for the NHL game
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis are in the top-3 in the Western Conference with a total of 57 points. The team is in good shape, but after three victories in a row, the Blues unexpectedly got crushed by Calgary (1:7) away. In the reverse fixture, the Blues avenged that defeat (5:1). Craig Berube's team is very powerful at their home court - this season, they lost only four home games in regulation and averaged four goals per game.
Winnipeg, on the other hand, have endured a poor campaign. The Jets are currently only in 13th place in the Western Conference standings with 41 points to their name. The visitors lost the last six games, most recently - to Florida (3:5) and Vancouver (1:5) at home. The Jets recorded only six victories in regulation away, and on average allowed three goals per game. On top of that, Paul Maurice has ruled out several important players due to injury and illness, including Josh Morrissey.
In 4 out of 5 games, Winnipeg scored fewer than 3 goals.
In the last 5 games between the clubs, fewer than 2 goals were scored in the first period.
St. Louis are in good form and have just crushed Calgary. We think that the Blues will be able to capitalize on their home advantage and get a landslide victory over the Jets, who are on a six-game losing streak.
Our prediction - St. Louis to win
Many previous games between the two sides were high-scoring, and in general, St. Louis are not afraid to play open attacking hockey at home. We suggest taking the over here.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
