St. Louis is 2-7 in their last 9 games against a team with a winning record and 3-8 in their last 11 games as a road underdog while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Vegas is 19-7 in their last 26 home games and 28-11 in their last 39 games overall while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 home games. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
This is a very tough game to call, as you could honestly make a case for either side. With that said, in these hard games I tend to lean to the under, but I’m going to go against the grain and take the over here. Both teams have had ups and downs in goaltending, more so St. Louis dating back to last year, but I just think there’s a ton of talent on the two sides that can really move the puck and I think we finish this one at at least 7 or 8 goals so I’ll take the over here.
