The Canucks are 16-6 in their last 22 games following a win, 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Blues are 9-4 in their last 13 games as a favorite, 57-26 in their last 83 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The over is 12-4 in Canucks last 16 overall. The under is 5-2 in Blues last 7 overall. The underdog is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 33-16-9 in the last 58 meetings.

The Vancouver Canucks have won four straight games and are getting ridiculous offensive production during that stretch. The St. Louis Blues have looked sloppy at both ends of the ice and are winless in the bubble, which includes three round robin losses and a beatdown in game one. While things can change quickly in a playoff series and the Blues are better than what they've shown up to the point, it's hard to turn down the Canucks and the plus money. We're getting the better price with the team in much better form.
