New Jersey Devils vs. St. Louis Blues NHL: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 8:00 PM EST

The Devils snapped their three-game losing streak in their last game, but they have been losing more than winning on the season. They have the fewest points in the Metropolitan Division and the 3rd fewest points in the Eastern Conference. New Jersey only totaled four goals in their three-game slide while scoring three in their last game. The defense has been the main issue for the club ranking tied for 27th in the league in goals against.

The Blues are red-hot winners of six games in a row and they are in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference. They have given up 11 goals in their six-game win streak with four of those coming in their last game. St. Louis has a D that ranks in the middle of the pack in terms of goals against per game, but they do not rank in the top 20 in the league in goals per game even though they did score five goals in their last game.

The Blues have won their last six home games facing the Devils.

Good start helps end skid

The Devils had lost three in a row before their last game when they were at home and beat the Carolina Hurricanes where they scored two goals in the first period. Even in the win, they were outshot badly (35-21), but they scored a power play goal and killed four of the five power play chances the Canes had. Marcus Johansson had two goals in the game for the Devils, Pavel Zacha also scored, and Nico Hischier had three assists. Keith Kinkaid (15-16-6 GAA) stopped 33 of 35 shots to pick up the win and he had been lit up for nine goals in his previous two starts.

Kyle Palmieri leads New Jersey in both goals and points, but he has not scored a goal in his last six games and in that span only has two assists. Taylor Hall leads the club in assists and he has three goals and three assists in his last four games. On the season, the Devils are only 7-17-3 on the road.

Taresenko’s big game helps in W

In their last game, the Blues were on the road and beat the Nashville Predators 5-4 in OT where Vladimir Tarasenko had a hat trick in the win.

Not only did he have a hat trick, but also scored the game-winning goal only 16 seconds into OT. The Blues scored three of their goals in the 2nd period, were outshot 44-29, and they killed all four of Nashville’s power-play opportunities. Tyler Bozak scored the other goal for the Blues in the game and Ryan O’Reilly and Jay Bouwmeester each had two assists. Jake Allen (16-15-3 3.07 GAA) gave up four goals on 44 shots in the win and he has given up four goals in three of his last five games including his last two.

O’Reilly leads Sty. Louis in points and assists and he has two goals and three assists in his last five games. Taresenko leads the team in goals and he has four of them in his last two games and five goals in his last five games. This season, the Blues are 13-13-2 at home.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Blues are the pick in this game not only because they are the much hotter team, nut the Devils have struggled on the road this season. New Jersey is tied with Ottawa for the fewest road wins in the NHL. The Blues will get it done with their D in this game and in a low scoring game the St. Louis will extend their winning streak to seven games.

Prediction: PICK: Blues

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

While the total has gone Over in eight of the last 11 games between these teams in St. Louis the Under is the pick in this non-conference game. The Blues will get the W and they will do so because of their defense. The Blues have an Under record of 3-1-1 in their last five games and that trend will continue on home ice in this game.

Prediction: PICK: Under

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
