New Jersey +160 at St. Louis O/U 4.5 
Recommendation: New Jersey


The New Jersey Devils continue their Midwest road trip on Tuesday with a contest against the struggling St. Louis Blues. The Devils picked up a 2-1 win on Sunday after losing their last three contests while the Blues picked up a 2-1 victory of their own over the Los Angeles Kings after dropping six of their last seven prior games. St. Louis is dealing with a handful of key injuries, most notably the loss of goaltender Jake Allen, who's out indefinitely with a leg injury and defenseman Jay Bouwmeester (concussion). Along with the previous injuries sustained by wingers Magnus Paajarvi, Jaden Schwartz, Steve Ott and defenseman Carl Gunnarson, the Blues have had to call up several young players from the Chicago Wolves (AHL). Both teams have struggled on offense as of late which is the reason for the total opening at 4.5. This is New Jersey's fourth time in the last five games with a 4.5 total due largely in part to the Devils scoring three or fewer goals in 15 of their last 16 games. In those four previous games, the Devils went 0-3-1 O/U and are currently on a 1-7-3 O/U run. St. Louis has scored three or fewer goals in 12 of its last 13 games and only managed 16 shots on net last game despite earning the win. St. Louis is in a potential vulnerable spot having returned home after a three-game road trip out West. And with goals expected to limited and plenty of defense, I see value with the underdog at the current price of +160.
