St. Louis are 7-1 in their last 8 games overall and 16-7 in their last 23 road games while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. . Tampa Bay is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 37-16 in their last 53 home games while the over is 7-2 in their last 9 home games.
I understand the case for backing either side in this game but the reality is I think it could go either way and I think either way we’re going to get goals. These are two teams that have a lot of offensive potential here, and while they have two of the best goaltenders in the league, the defense hasn’t been as sharp as I’d like from both of them this season. I think this is at least a 4-3 game whichever way you go, so give me that one.
