Reeling Blues attempt to avoid fifth straight loss vs Jets

Blue Jets Betting Odds February 23

The St. Louis Blues host the Winnipeg Jets tonight and opened as a -125 favorite at Scottrade Center. The Blues have been struggling lately, losing four straight games, and are 1-3 SU in their last four home games. St. Louis will be desperate to right the ship vs Winnipeg to avoid dropping out of a playoff position in the Western Conference.

  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Jets’ last nine games vs their division on the road.
  • St. Louis is 4-2 ATS in its last six games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 16 of St. Louis’s last 20 games at home.

The Blues are currently suffering their longest losing streak of the season. St. Louis’s recent downturn has dropped the team to a wild-card spot and one point from being out of the playoffs completely. One of the reasons for the Blues’ recent tailspin has been goal scoring as St. Louis ranks 25th in goals per game in February at 2.44. If bettors are planning to place a wager on St. Louis, they should know that the Blues knocked off Winnipeg 5-2 earlier this month and are 7-3 SU at home vs their division this season.

The Jets hit the road after wrapping up a 10-game homestand. Winnipeg was 6-4 SU during that stretch but, despite being third in the Western Conference, has not been a reliable bet on the road this season. The Jets are 5-12 SU in their last 17 road games and 12-17 SU on the road overall. However, if Winnipeg backers want to overlook the Jets’ road performance and drop some dough on them, this is the trend they need to know: The Jets are 7-2 SU in the last nine games in this matchup and have won in four of their last five trips to the Lou.

The total opened at 5.5 and trends are pointing toward an OVER. The total has gone OVER in six of Winnipeg’s last seven games and the Jets average 3.56 goals per game in February. When you factor in that the OVER has hit in four of the Blues’ last five games vs divisional opponents, this one seems like a no-brainer.
