The penultimate slate before the All-Star break is just a two-game slate. The Columbus Blue Jackets finish their road trip in St. Louis in the Battle of the Blues, while the Seattle Kraken faceoffs against the San Jose Sharks.
Tonight’s confirmed goaltending match-up for this game is Elvis Merzlikins (8-10-7) for the Blue Jackets against Jordan Binnington (17-12-2) for the Blues.
The other matches confirmed goalie match-ups are Joey Daccord (15-8-9) for the Kraken and MacKenzie Blackwood (7-17-3) for the Sharks.
Columbus Blue Jackets & St. Louis Blues over 6.5 & Robert Thomas point (-105)
The Blue Jackets have reached this over in five of their last 10 games, while the Blues have eclipsed this number in seven of their previous 10 games. Head to head, these teams have scored 7+ goals in five straight games.
Robert Thomas is currently on a five-game point streak, totalling eight points. Against the Blue Jackets, Thomas has points in four of his last five games, totalling seven points. Columbus allows 4.2 goals against over their last 10 games, ranking as the most in the entire NHL.
Seattle Kraken to win and Jared McCann point (+125)
Your $10 bet would return $22.50.
After a four-game losing streak, the Seattle Kraken have rightened the ship, winners of two of their next three games. The Kraken have won four of their last five head-to-head matchups against the Sharks. San Jose is tied for the lowest point total in the entire league. If the Kraken want any shot at making the playoffs this season, a win tonight is crucial for Seattle.
Jared McCann is currently on a six-game point streak, totalling nine points. Expanding even further, McCann has points in eight of his last nine games, totalling 13 points. In the Kraken’s earlier meeting against the Sharks, McCann finished with one goal and two points.
Kirill Marchenko over 2.5 shots on goal (+100)
Your $10 bet would return $20.00
The Blue Jackets wrap up their five-game road trip tonight. In the first four games of this road trip, Marchenko has cleared this line in all four games, averaging 3.5 shots on 5.8 shot attempts per game. Marchenko has covered this line in eight of his last 10 road games, averaging 3.1 shots on 4.7 shot attempts.
The Blues allow the second most shots on goal to wingers over their last 10 games, averaging 14.4 per game. St. Louis is a very disciplined team this season, as they average the second-fewest powerplay opportunities against per game. Marchenko leads the Blue Jackets in shots on goal and 5-on-5.
Juuse Saros o28.5 saves – WIN – (+$7.50)
Nashville Predators Team Total o3.5 – LOSS – (-$10.00)
It was pretty brutal how the Predators scored three early and then took a back seat. It ultimately costs them the game, as they lost 4-3 in overtime after a failed 2-0 in overtime.
All-Time Record: 18-23 (-$59.5)
