Blues vs Bruins Betting Odds and Pick, November 22, 2016


St. Louis has historically given the Bruins a ton of trouble in Boston and the Blues will look to continue their current roll when they face the B’s in Beantown this evening. The problem for the Blues is that Boston has won four of its last five and is on a five-game winning streak when going in as the favorite.

– Shark
  • The Blues are 7-1 in their last 8 games on the road against the Bruins.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Bruins’ last 11 games against teams with winning records.
  • Jake Allen is 3-0 with a .953 save percentage in his last 3 starts.

Inverse to the Bruins’ trend as faves, the Blues have not won a game this year when they’ve been an underdog of +106 or more. Although that’s just two games, it says a lot that bookmakers had pegged St. Louis as +129 dogs at the time of writing. That line would mark the biggest underdog odds the Blues have faced all season.

Boston has not been involved in a game that’s gone OVER in five straight and the matchup between these teams has been producing UNDERs at a solid clip at the TD Garden. Both Boston and St. Louis are near the bottom in goals scored and another UNDER may be looming tonight.
