Blues vs Jets Over/Under Pick: Under 6½

St. Louis has scored 11 goals in its last two games when playing the second game of a back-to-back. However, the Blues have scored two goals or less in four of the last five games. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.

After five straight Edmonton games had at least seven combined goals scored, it was a different story in a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings last time out.

This feels like a similar type of matchup for the Oilers.

 

Blues vs Jets ATS Pick: Oilers -1½ (-120)

Edmonton has played just two games decided by a goal this season. Even though St. Louis has won its last six games against Pacific Division teams and captured 11 of its last 16 games in Edmonton, go with the Oilers to seal the deal against a St. Louis team that not only has to play on back-to-back nights, but both of those games came on the road.

These teams have played four straight games decided by at least two goals so look for that to happen again.

 

Blues vs Jets Player Prop Pick: Connor McDavid 2+ Assists (+100)

The reigning Hart Trophy winner has 23 assists in 11 games in February. For those scoring at home, that is a 171-assist pace over an 82-game schedule.

He has at least two assists in eight of the last nine games and is a solid bet at +100 to have at least two assists when it comes to the NHL hockey bets today.
