Anaheim is 25-51 in their last 76 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. St. Louis is 4-17 in their last 21 home games and 2-8 in their last 10 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games played on one days’ rest. Anaheim is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in St. Louis.
I get why the Blues are favored at home, but once again, the Blues’ home woes reared it’s ugly head and the Blues just took one on the chin against Anaheim. It’s hard, especially for a team like Anaheim, to beat the same team twice in as many days, but I just think there’s too much value to pass on with the Ducks given St. Louis’ struggles. I’ll take a shot with Anaheim and the plus money here.
