The St. Louis Blues and the Vegas Golden Knights meet in NHL action from the T-Mobile Arena on Friday night.

The St. Louis Blues will try to bounce back from a 5-2 loss to Seattle in their last game. Robert Thomas has 30 points with 8 goals and 22 assists. Jordan Kyrou has 32 points split between 16 goals and 16 assists and Brayden Schenn has 25 points with 7 goals and 18 assists. Pavel Buchnevich also has 24 points with 13 assists and Vladimir Tarasenko has 25 points with 9 goals and 16 assists this season. Jordan Binnington’s seen the action in goal for St. Louis up to this point in the season with a record of 12-11-1 along with a 3.11 GAA and a .897 save percentage this season.

The Vegas Golden Knights will be look to build on their 5-2 win over Arizona in their last game. Chandler Stephenson leads the Golden Knights in scoring with 32 points including a team-high 24 assists while Jack Eichel has 29 points with 13 goals and 16 assists. Mark Stone has 28 points with 14 goals and 14 assists. Jonathan Marchessault has 27 points with 14 goals and Reilly Smith has 26 points with a team-high 17 goals. Logan Thompson’s gone 15-8 with a 2.61 GAA and a .917 save percentage while Adin Hill is 8-3-1 with a 2.66 GAA and a .903 save percentage as well this season.

St. Louis is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 20-6 in their last 26 games against the Pacific division while the over is 26-9-3 in their last 38 road games. Vegas is 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 2-5 in their last 7 games following a win while the under is 13-3-2 in their last 18 home games.

I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but I’m leaning towards St. Louis and the plus money here. The Vegas Golden Knights are banged up and just haven’t had the same punch at home as they’ve had in past seasons. St. Louis continues to be a streaky team, but I think there’s too much value to pass on the Blues and the plus money here.
