St. Louis Blues

Expert Capper Dana Lane reviews the odds for the Predators and Blues clash this evening. After an analysis of the line and how the teams are doing, he provides his expert pick to help you cash that ticket.

Another big win for our followers last night as the Anaheim Ducks scored an easy win in Calgary as +109 underdog. It was another lesson in money management and knowing when to strike. The Blues went off a -114 favorite because the public knew that the bookmakers made a mistake. Our players recognized it early and that's the difference between a 'sharp' and a 'square'. We change the lines, we don't react to them. 

Tonight we are going to lay a high price to get an easy win. It's very important that you go to all approved sportsbooks on SBR to get the very best of this number. There is one -145 available which falls under our threshold of -150. The rest of the numbers hover around -150 me up. I can't stress enough the importance of shopping.

It's gut check time for the Nashville Predators but the upcoming schedule for the Preds will make it difficult for them to make a move in the Central, especially after a recent soul-crushing loss to the Blackhawks last night. 

St.Louis sits seven points ahead of Nashville but has struggled of late going just 4-5-1 in their last 10 games but their play has been good enough to earn points in three of their last four. If you watch their pace and how they've controlled the puck during that streak you know that the Blues are not in a slump that would cause us to shy away from them from a betting perspective.

This is a revenge spot for St.louis as they've dropped two of three against Nashville but their one victory was at the Bridgestone Arena. 

This is not a recommendation but there may be a first-period bet opportunity with Nashville. You know they will come out with their A game after their devastating loss last night but ultimately they're not strong enough to stay with the Blues. If the Preds don't have a good first period the Blues will close to an easy victory. 

The Predators have huge injury issues to contend with as well. James Neal has an upper body injury and P.K Subban will miss tonight's game with the same injury. The Predators have had their complete defensive core healthy for only 10 minutes his season. 

The Blues will be too much for the Predators to handle tonight so lay the extra money for an easy win for your NHL Pick.
