St. Louis vs Seattle: prediction for the NHL game
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis are in 4th place in the Western Conference table. The Blues almost always win at least two games in a row. After a recent defeat to Pittsburgh (3:5), the hosts crushed Washington (5:1) and prevailed over Dallas (2:1).
Berube's men were losing 0:1 to the Stars, but a few seconds before the final siren they capitalised on power play and scored two goals. We would also like to point out, that St Louis lost only 3 home games in regulation this season.
Seattle are one of the outsiders in the Western Conference, currently occupying the penultimate line in the table with 24 points in the asset. The Kraken are on a seven-game losing streak. After the break, the team suffered defeats to Colorado (3:4) and Dallas (2:5).
Dave Hakstol's men often score 2-3 goals per game, because they have a strong line of attack, but they have problems with defense and goaltenders. On average, the Kraken concede four goals in away games.
On average, Seattle concede 4 goals in away games.
In the last 7 head-to-head games, more than one goal was scored in the first period.
St. Louis have been consistent in their latest fixtures, while Seattle continue to lose points in almost every game. The Kraken are having huge problems on the defensive. Considering that the Blues do well against such opponents, we suggest playing the victory of the hosts.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to St. Louis
Both sides prefer to play open attacking style of hockey, so we are expecting a large number of goals scored in this fixture.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
