The momentum of the series has shifted quite a bit in this series.

After the Boston Bruins’ 7-2 win in game three to give the Bruins a 2-1 series lead, it looked like the team had this series in the bag.

The St. Louis Blues would go on to win two in a row and sit one game from their first Stanley Cup.

An onslaught of offense along with a stunning performance by Bruins’ goalie Tuukka Rask, now this series goes to a game seven winner take it all.

Although this series has been unpredictable, there have some consistent betting trends you can follow to make this game a profitable one.

St. Louis Blues vs. Boston Bruins (Series tied 3-3)

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Blues vs. Bruins Betting Odds (According to Fanduel)

Moneyline: STL: (+135) | BOS: (-160)
Spread: STL: +1.5 (-210) | BOS: -1.5 (+175)
Total: 5.5 – Over: (+100) | Under: (-120)
Public (Moneyline) Betting Percentages: STL: 1% | BOS: 99%
Series Price: STL: (+138) | BOS: (-168)

It shouldn’t be a surprise the Bruins are favorite to win.

There are 5-3 in game 7’s at home this decade and coming off an incredible performance by Rask saving 28 of 29.

Facts About The Team’s Situation

  • Blues are 4-1 against the spread in the last five roads game
  • Bruins are 8-3 against the spread in the previous 11 games
  • Blues are 4-1 straight up in the last 5 road games
  • Bruins are 10-3 straight up in the last 11 games

I’m Over-joyed On The Over

The over/under thought the playoffs has either been five or 5.5, four of the games have been the over, and two of them under, The current number is at five.

The Bruins scored seven goals in game three and five in game six. The Bruins have scored five or more goals four times this series, and the Blues have given that up three times before this series.

Like most of the Boston victories in this series, their offensive power could lead to an abundance of goals.

The over would be a safe bet.

The Bruins And Their Spread Looks Good

The spread has stayed consistent through the series at 1.5. The Bruins are giving that number.

Even when they’ve lost at home this series, they’ve still been able to cover.

Go for the Bruins getting the points.

It Wouldn’t Be Rash To Bet On Rask

Thanks to his stellar performance during game six, Boston goalie Tuukka Rask keeps Boston alive, and is the favorite to win the Conn Smythe trophy; he would be the first goalie to win since Jonathan Quick in 2012 with the Los Angeles Kings.

According to Fanduel, Rask is the favorite to win the award at -145, next is St. Louis’ right wing Vladimir Tarasenko at +190.

In clinching games during the playoff, Rask has saved 95 of 96 shots (989 save percentage.).

Prop Bet I Like

Ryan O’Reilly has 49 shots in the postseason including three goals in the last two games. I like the over 2.5 shots on goals he’s getting.
