The Blues are 11-5 in their last 16 road games and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The Wild are 10-1 in their last 11 home games and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The over is 9-4-1 in Blues last 14 Thursday games. The under is 4-0 in Wild last 4 home games. The Blues are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Minnesota and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The road team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The St. Louis Blues have the rest advantage and have beaten up on the Wild in past meetings, but they've been on the struggle bus these last two weeks and have given us very little in the underdog role. The Minnesota Wild are playing easily the better hockey right now and have been nothing but money in the favorite role this season. I'll ride the trends in this spot, taking the Wild and the reasonable price at home.
