To start I would just like to wish everyone, all my friends and family a Happy Cinco De Mayo.
As for our free play today we will go to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri where the St. Louis Blues host the Dallas Stars in Game 4 of their Western Conference round 2 series.
Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues (-143, 5)
Time: 8:00 PM ET, Thursday, May 5, 2016
Venue: Scottrade Center, St. Louis, Missouri
Two days ago we gave you St.Louis on the money line plus a winner on the game minus 1 and a half goals. Although tonight we see a much closer game as Dallas will not lay down as we expected them to do on Tuesday night, but we do see the same outcome as in Game 3, a St. Louis win.
The reason for this is basically the same reasons St.Louis destroyed Dallas in Game 3. As in the last game Dallas will be without Eaves and Seguin plus as we saw on Tuesday night Dallas has some serious issues in the net. Special teams continue top be a big advantage to the Blues in this series with St.Louis being 4 for 12 on the PP the last 2 games while we see Dallas has yet to score a PP goal in 11 attempts in this series. The oddsmakers keep undervaluing the Blues as they are only 145/140 favorites, our system has them much larger at 170/175.
When we see this kind of value although it is a little larger of a favorite than we normally would bet, we will take the generosity of the oddsmakers. Also with Dallas not having won in the last 4 games at Scotttrade and only twice in the last 10 games against St. Louis overall, this is a great spot for us.
So lets get the job done with the St. Louis Blues as your free play of the day.
