The St. Louis Blues are what the kids describe as “mid”. They aren’t outperforming or under-performing their expected goals in terms of both production and saving. They have weaknesses in their defensive coverage allowing a lot of chances from the slot. They’ve weakened the defensive strength of their blueline over the years and are just now discovering what the affects of that are. Ryan O’Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko are both projected to be out as well.
If that paragraph above seems familiar it’s because I copied it directly from Tuesday’s post. Just because the results of one game are already over and done with does not mean I’m going to drastically change the projections. I’m not going to bet on defenceman points this time but the other stuff is going to feel eerily similar.
Primary Bet – Flames to win, Moneyline (-170)
Hopefully the boys have some pride and come back swinging after blowing a game they entered the third period leading 3-1. Calgary is the healthier and usually more structured team defensively. I don’t know who’s in net for the Flames but really, it shouldn’t matter. Keyword: shouldn’t.
Secondary Bet – Andrew Mangiapane anytime goal scorer (+200)
When he’s with Backlund and Coleman he’s one of the most useful players in the league. That line has been getting net front chances for a while now. The Blues defence is still depleted and/or not very good defensively so i think Mangiapane finds the net again tonight.
Tertiary Bet – 1st goal to the St. Louis Blues (+100)
I may believe in Calgary having the horses to win but they are atrocious at letting the opposition score first. Calgary also is very adept at keeping things close so a one goal deficit isn’t life or death for the game. Last year the first goal was the Flames strength and this year it’s a hindrance. May as well try to win some money off it – if that’s your forté anyways.
