Money Line Pick
The St. Louis Blues are the clear-cut favorites in the Western Conference this season. They enter this game with the best record in the Western Conference at 31-13-8 and 70 points, which also gives them the 3rd best record in the NHL. However, the Blues have struggled lately, losing four of their previous five games, which includes a 2-4 road loss against the Oilers on Friday. They will look to build some momentum when they travel to take on the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Winnipeg Jets are in a two-way tie for 5th place in the Central Division with a record of 25-23-4 and 54 points. However, they have struggled over their past eight games going 1-7 over that stretch, which includes their current five-game losing streak. I look for the Blues to bounce back following their loss against the Oilers on Friday with a win over the Jets.
Over Under Pick
The St. Louis Blues are slightly above-average this season when it comes to goals per game. They enter this game, averaging the 11th most goals per game with 3.22. Defensively, they have been one of the better teams in the league as they are limiting opponents to the 8th fewest goals per game this season at 2.76. Meanwhile, the Winnipeg Jets enter this game ranked 19th in goals per game this season at 2.98. They have also been below-average defensively this season, allowing 3.14 goals per game, which ranks 19th in the league. The total in this game could go either way. As a result, I would only recommend placing a small wager on the under six goals.
