Total: -140/+5 Over
10* Over Bruins/Blues (8:05 ET): St. Louis returns home w/ a chance to win their first ever Stanley Cup. Playing Game 6 on home ice bodes well as they've closed out each of their previous three series here at the Enterprise Center. But Boston won't go down easy and it's the O/U line that's caught my eye here. The oddsmakers moving the number to 5.0 is significant because four of the five previous games in the series have seen at least five total goals scored. We've cashed the Under twice (Games 2, 5) thanks to 5.5 goal totals. The only other time a game in the series opened w/ a 5.0 goal total was Game 3 and that went way Over (and we had the Over). Play the Over here.
That Game 3 happened to be the highest scoring game in the series (so far). The Over cashed midway in the second period and when it was all said and done, nine total goals were scored (7-2 Bruins' win). That was also the last time the Bruins won a game. They've since lost 4-2 and 2-1. They badly outshot the Blues (39-21) in Game 5, but it didn't matter. There was a controversial no-call in the third period and St. Louis scored right after to take a commanding 2-0 lead.
Though they've closed out all three previous series here on home ice, the Blues are just 6-6 SU at the Enterprise Center this postseason. There have been seven playoff games that St. Louis has allowed four or more goals. Four of them have come at home. The Over is 8-3 in the L11 meetings here in St. Louis. Both goaltenders have seen their respective save percentages drop in this series. With every game in the series prior to the last one seeing at least five total goals scored, I see this one following suit. 10* Over Bruins/Blues
