Jack Eichel has scored 11 goals and added 17 assists so far this season.

Blues Offense has Been Inconsistent

The Blues Offense has been inconsistent this season and there has to be some concern. Two games ago against the Arizona Coyotes the offense only managed one goal and that led to the defeat. In the last game they scored two goals but the second goal came in overtime. The Blues are averaging 2.88 goals while their defense is giving up 3.04 goals per game. The offense is ranked 23rd in the league and they are going to need the offense to get going faster here. Robert Thomas has scored eight goals and added 17 assists. 

Blue Betting Trends

  • The Blues have won four of their last six games as home underdogs.
  • The Blues have failed to cover the puck line in each of their last four home games against Western Conference opponents.
  • The 'Over 2.5 Goals Period 1' market has hit in seven of the Blues' last eight games as underdogs against Western Conference opponents.
  • The Blues have won the third period in five of their last six games as underdogs following an overtime win.

Golden Knights vs Blues Betting Prediction

Both offenses really struggled in the last game and they are going to struggle again here. The Blues offense is averaging only 2.88 goals per game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Look for the Golden Knights and Blues to both really struggle to get quality scoring chances and there will only be three or four goals scored here. Back the under to cash.
