David Perron leads the Blues in scoring with 29 points coming on 11 goals and a team-high 18 assists, tied with Ryan O’Reilly in assists while O’Reilly has 9 goals for his 27 points this season. Brayden Schenn also has 24 points with a team-high 12 goals this season.

St. Louis is 9-3 in their last 12 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 6 games played on 1 days rest. Los Angeles is 2-6 in their last 8 games overall and 3-11 in their last 14 Monday games while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games played on no rest. St. Louis is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams in Los Angeles.

I get that there’s value to be had with a home dog, but realistically, the Kings are on a back-to-back, and while the Blues have had their issues, they’ve been almost dominant on the road, picking up 10 of their 14 wins this season away from home. I just think a lack of rest here is more of a detriment to Los Angeles than anything else, so I’ll lay the juice with St. Louis on the road in this spot.
