St. Louis Blues vs. Ottawa Senators Predictions

The upcoming game between the St. Louis Blues and the Ottawa Senators promises to be an intriguing encounter, with both teams coming off contrasting recent forms. The Blues, currently on a quest to secure a playoff spot, have won six of their last ten games, showcasing a blend of resilience and skill. Their offense, led by Pavel Buchnevich and Robert Thomas, has been a driving force, while Jordan Binnington’s goaltending has provided the necessary backbone. The Senators, on the other hand, have struggled to find consistency, winning only three of their last ten. Despite the efforts of Brady Tkachuk and Tim Stutzle, the team has been unable to convert individual performances into victories.

Defensively, the Blues have shown they can be stingy, but their road record suggests vulnerability away from home. The Senators will need to exploit this by bolstering their own defensive efforts, which have been less than stellar, ranking low in the league for goals against. Offensively, both teams have players capable of turning a game on its head, setting the stage for some potentially explosive individual matchups. The Senators will rely heavily on their top scorers to break through the Blues’ defense and will need a strong goaltending performance to keep the Blues’ offensive threats at bay.

This game could come down to special teams, where the Blues have been more effective on the power play, while the Senators have struggled. Discipline will be key for Ottawa to avoid giving St. Louis those extra-man opportunities. As the Blues look to maintain their playoff push, they’ll be counting on their depth and recent form to carry them through. For the Senators, it’s about pride and the chance to upset the Blues’ momentum. This matchup has all the makings of a tightly contested game, with each team’s stars poised to make an impact.

St. Louis Blues vs. Ottawa Senators Pick

Given the current form and statistics, the St. Louis Blues moneyline bet appears to be the more compelling choice. The Blues have won four of their last five games, showcasing a strong winning momentum as they push for a playoff spot. Their offensive prowess, led by Pavel Buchnevich and Robert Thomas, has been consistent, and their goaltending with Jordan Binnington has been solid. Despite their less impressive road record, the Blues have shown resilience and the ability to win crucial games away from home. Additionally, the Blues have historically performed well against the Senators, winning two of the last three encounters, and the recent head-to-head matchup suggests they have the edge over Ottawa, especially considering the Senators’ recent struggles and inconsistency.

On the other hand, the Ottawa Senators have been on a downward trend, with only three wins in their last ten games and a defense that has been less than reliable. While the Senators will be playing at home, their recent form does not inspire confidence, especially against a Blues team that is fighting to maintain its playoff position. The Senators’ difficulty in capitalizing on power plays and their lower ranking in goals against further tilt the odds in favor of the Blues. Taking into account the Blues’ effective power play and the Senators’ need to avoid penalties, the smart money is on the Blues to continue their push and secure another valuable win on the road.

The Pick: St. Louis Blues +102 (BetRivers)
