The Blues are 7-1 in their last 8 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Ducks are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 0-7 in their last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Blues last 6 games following a win. The over is 4-1 in Ducks last 5 overall. The Blues are 7-0 in the last 7 meetings in Anaheim and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The St. Louis Blues continue to play some of their best hockey on the road and the road team has won 11 of the last 12 meetings in this series. The Blues have also won each of the last five meetings against the Ducks. The Anaheim Ducks continue to pile up the losses and the lack of offense limits any confidence you could have in this club. You could argue this price should be a lot steeper than it is. Give me the Blues.
