Money Line Pick
Despite going 2-5-2 over their last nine games, the St. Louis Blues remain at the top in the Western Conference. St. Louis is 32-15-9 on the season with 73 points, which is the best record in the Western Conference and ties the Penguins for the 4th best record in the NHL. The Blues will look to end their two-game losing streak when they travel to take on the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Ducks are 23-26-7 with 53 points on the season, which puts them in 6th place in the Pacific Division. However, the Ducks are coming off a 3-2 road win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday, which was their 3rd win over their last five games. St. Louis has dropped seven of their previous eight games on the road. As a result, I look for the Ducks to pull off the slight upset in this game.
Over Under Pick
Neither team has been great offensively this season. The Blues enter this game averaging 3.18 goals per game this season, which ranks 15th in the NHL. However, they have been one of the best teams defensively, allowing the 10th fewest goals per game with 2.86. Meanwhile, the Ducks enter this game, averaging the 3rd fewest goals per game this season with 2.61. Anaheim is also a slightly below-average team defensively as they rank 17th in goals allowed per game this season with 3.09. Despite this game having one of the lowest totals on the slate, I look for the under 5.5 goals to be the play.
