Edmonton vs St. Louis: Scoring Burst Has The Blues Streaking

Edmonton vs St. Louis: Scoring Burst Has The Blues Streaking

St. Louis Blues: Scoring juggernaut keeps rolling

Winners of four straight contests, by a rather impressive 25-9 margin, St. Louis is closing in on Tampa Bay as the highest scoring squad in the NHL. The Blues are now averaging 3.14 goals per game - just a tick shy of the 3.23 GPG the Lightning have posted. St. Louis (26-13-3) sits fourth overall in the NHL Western Conference and are just five points behind top seeded Nashville. The Blues, who are 15-4-1 at home this season, have owned the Oilers winning nine of the last ten meetings by a 38-18 margin. 

Edmonton Oilers: Lost season continues in the Alberta Capital

Last overall in the NHL, another long season of losing continues in Edmonton. Although we have just hit the halfway point of the season, reality has to be setting in for the Oilers (10-24-9) as they are 20 points out of a playoff position in the West. Wounded squads can be dangerous though and Edmonton has posted a pair of 5-2 home wins over the Islanders and Blackhawks so far this month. That said, road trips have not been kind to the Oilers as they have a 2-10-7 record as visitors this season.

Blues vs Oilers NHL Prediction: St. Louis is enjoying some home cooking as they are in the middle of seven game home-stand while the Oilers open a four game road trip tonight. As expected, the Blues are posted as thick chalk on the betting board at the TopBet sportsbook. We are loading up here as we back the streaking St. Louis squad with a 1000 unit wager on the money line price at TopBet.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
