Calgary -½ -102 over St. Louis
8:07 PM EST. Regulation only. It started off good but ended poorly. The Flames were in St. Louis on Tuesday, jumped out to a 3-1 lead and held that lead going to the third when the Blues scored two goals seconds apart to tie it before winning in OT.
On Tuesday, we wrote:
“The Blues return home tonight from a four game trip to face an elite team that rarely doesn’t bring it. The Flames will actually play here on Thursday as well so if the Flames lose here (unlikely), we’ll get it back on Thursday because they’re not dropping two straight to these frauds. We absolutely love that Calgary is coming off an unacceptable loss against the Blackhawks because a big response is in order”.
You can now add that we absolutely love that they lost to Chicago and then blew a two goal, third period lead to these frauds. We’ll also reiterate that oddsmakers are fully aware of how much trouble the Blues are in, which is reflective in the price. It’s been reflective in the price for a few weeks but we’ll focus on today’s price, which is precisely the same as Tuesday’s price. St. Louis is -½ +210 tonight in regulation, which would’ve been considered absolutely absurd last year or in the first three months of this year. One would have to go back far in the archives to find the Blue Notes priced like this at home. As promised, we’re back for more.
Calgary -½ -104 (Risking 2.08 units - To Win: 2.00)
