Vancouver vs St Louis
Rogers Arena (Vancouver)
Vancouver have lost both head-to-head meetings this season. Will Bruce Boudreau’s team be able to avoid a third consecutive loss to the Blues? We predict the Blues will once again be closer to success!Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Vancouver are having another tough regular season. The team from the province of British Columbia started the regular championship abysmally, due to which they even had to change their head coach. Bruce Boudreau was named the new head coach. Under his guidance, the Canucks team made progress, which allowed them to approach the playoffs, but they failed to maintain this momentum until the end of the regular season. In the last ten meetings, the Blue and Green managed only three wins and seven losses, which significantly worsened their position. Now Vancouver are only sitting in 11th place in the Western Conference standings, although the gap from the top 8 does not seem too big.
St. Louis are having a decent regular season, although they can’t seem to avoid significant upsets. One of them continues with the musicians now, as in the last 13 meetings they have allowed nine losses and four wins, which hardly suits such an ambitious team. Fortunately, their results were much better before that, so they’re still comfortably in the playoff zone. At the moment, the Blues are in fifth place in the Western Conference standings, but the competition is so intense there that a continued losing streak could aggravate their position, so it’s time for St. Louis to improve.
Expert Betting Tips
Vancouver and St. Louis approach the encounter, being not in the best condition. The Canucks had only three wins in the last ten meetings, and the Blues won only 4 of the 13 previous meetings. The favorites for the upcoming battle are Craig Berube’s wards, who have a stronger squad and higher ambitions. In the current regular season, they won both of their meetings, including the day before - 4-1. As a result, a bet on the victory of St. Louis in the match for 1.97 is inevitable.
We shouldn’t expect high scoring activity from the upcoming encounter. Both teams continue to fight for the playoffs, so obviously now they are not interested in flashy and productive hockey. More important is to play defense and collect two points. Also, both of their regular-season meetings between Vancouver and St. Louis were 3-1 and 4-1, so there’s a good chance of a cautious, defensive struggle now too. Therefore, Total Under 5.5 pucks for 2.24 might be the best option.
