Best Bets for this Game
Full-Game Side Bet
The Panthers have won seven of their last nine games and they’ve done a good job offensively, scoring at least four goals in six of those games. Even though the Blues have played well defensively this season, they struggled defensively in recent games, giving up at least three goals in six straight games. With Jordan Binnington out due to COVID-19, Husso will get the start in goal once again and after giving up three goals to the Panthers in their last game, expect the Blues to have a hard time slowing down the Panthers. The Blues have lost four of their last six games and they have struggled offensively during the stretch due to injuries to David Perron and Justin Faulk landing on the COVID-19 list. With the Panthers having one of the best defenses in the league, expect the Blues to struggle offensively once again, so go with the Panthers to get the win.
Full-Game Total Pick
The Panthers are averaging 3.83 goals per game and 2.88 goals per game on the road. They averaged 2.67 goals per game in their last three games against the Blues. With St. Louis giving up 2.54 goals per game at home, the Panthers will be held under their average in this game. The Blues are averaging 3.25 goals per game and 3.72 goals per game at home. They averaged 2.33 goals per game in their last three games against the Panthers. Even though Florida is giving up 3.22 goals per game on the road, the Blues won’t score enough goals to push the score over the total.
