Arizona is 3-7 in their last 10 games overall and 6-20 in their last 26 road games while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. St. Louis is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 30-13 in their last 43 games following a win while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 home games. Arizona is 8-20 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams and 3-7 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.
I was trying to find a case that I could make for Arizona and the plus money, but the problem is that the Coyotes continue to stall offensively and haven’t been the easiest team to back on the road for some time now. St. Louis is starting to get into their groove and are simply the better team here and by a wide margin at that. I’ll back the Blues on the puck line to get the price down with St. Louis in this spot.
