Chicago vs. St. Louis,
01/02/2017 13:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 4
Total: -128/+5 Over
This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE WEEK on the OVER between the Chicago Blackhawks and the St. Louis Blues.
REASONING: Chicago will be extra motivated here after losing four of its last five. The Blues will also be eager to turn things around, having won just three times over their last nine games. This one is being played outdoors at Busch Stadium, so both teams will also be looking to put on a show for the National audience. It’s interesting to note that the OVER is 5-1-3 in the last nine in this series. Corey Crawford gets the call in net for Chicago and he’s 13-10 with a 2.28 GAA including 6-5 with a 2.61 GAA on the road. The Hawks are ranked 14th in the league scoring at 2.72 GPG, while ranked seventh on the defensive end in conceding 2.38. St. Louis was most recently blanked 4-0 by the Predators at home. Goaltender Jake Allen is 16-12 with a 2.67 GAA. St. Louis ranks 12th in scoring at 2.78 GPG and 22nd on the defensive end in allowing 2.95 GPG. We think that the stage is now set for these teams to break out with some offense, play the OVER.
