It’s your boy Lavoie here again coming at you with another NHL winner. Up next we’ve got the Blues and Wings going at it in St. Louis tomorrow night. The line info above is set so let’s dig into it.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wing fans have dealt with their fair share of misery over the past few campaigns but the emergence of players like Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin and Namestikov this team has started to look like they are bound for success.
They have 9 wins at home so far through the campaign but have had struggles on the road sporting a measley 4-7-1 record. They have poor numbers in almost every facet of the game with the exceptions of shooting percentage where they rank 14th at 9.7 and penalty minutes, with an average of only 8.5 minutes per game.
They are battling some key injuries also with notables Staal and Bertuzzi on the Covid list. Vrana with a shoulder ailment, and Hronek is day to day.
St. Louis Blues
The Blues have won 5 straight at home and are coming off a win over the buzzsaw Florida Panthers that went to overtime. They are 8th in the league in goals with 3.28 per game and have the second best powerplay with a 29.6% success rate.
They are, much like their opponent, battling some serious health problems at the moment with Bozak, Faulk and Binnington all out with the c-word, Robert Thomas and David Perron both out with a lower body injury and an upper body injury, respectively.
They also have a goalie confirmed to start that has only 1 game in the nhl and boasts a 1.000 save % which is concerning for Blues backers.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Detroit are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.
- Detroit are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against St. Louis.
- St. Louis are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction
Despite all of the covid cases, injuries and the rookie goalie, I still think that this team will be too much for the inexperienced and similarly injured Wings team.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Blues Puckline -1.5 +142
St. Louis has been scoring at will on the powerplay and seem to be unbeatable at home. Over the span of these two teams last 10 matchups the Blues lead in almost every category, shots, goal differential, powerplay % and penalty kill %. They are 6-2-2 over those ten matchups and are also 5/4 on the O/U.
Look for O’Reilly and Tarasenko to have their workload increased and produce most of this teams offensive chances tomorrow night.
They will also likely have a stingy plan in place in front of their own goal and in their own zone to help out their greenhorn goaltender Lindgren which should limit the wings time of possession and offensive chances.
