Hockey Wagering: Minnesota Wild vs. St. Louis Blues

Hockey wagering on the Wild and Blues from St. Louis comes down to a hockey bet on teams trying to climb back into the playoff race.

Hockey wagering fans have seen both teams fall out of the top eight in the western conference which is a strong hockey bet intangible.  The Minnesota Wild have fallen into a terrible hockey wagering slump as of late.  Since February 12 the Wild have been one of the worst teams to make a hockey bet with.

From February 12 through March 5 the Wild earned hockey wagering payoffs in just 3 out of 10 games.  In that same hockey wagering stretch they posted just 2 “unders” against the over/under hockey odds.  The big hockey wagering problem for Minnesota has been their 26th ranked offense.

During that 10 game stretch the Wild scored 3 goals or more just 3 times.  The only thing that has kept Minnesota in the playoff race has been their defense, which ranked 2nd in the National Hockey League.

Goaltender Niklas Backstrom has been a major hockey wagering asset as he had a save percentage of .924 and a goals against average of 2.28.  Mikko Koivu was the Wild’s leading scorer with 57 points.  Minnesota had an overall record of 31-27-3-2 straight up and 29-34 against the board.

The Wild went over the total in just 11 out of 29 road games.  The St. Louis Blues have been one of the better teams to make a hockey bet with as of late.  From February 13 through March 3 the Blues went on a hockey wagering stretch in which they were 6-3 against the hockey odds.

Overall St. Louis stood with a hockey wagering record of 28-27-3-5 straight up and 39-24 against the board.

The major reason why St. Louis has been such a strong hockey wagering value is that they got off to such a bad start due to several key injuries that the public shied away from them, enhancing their hockey wagering value in the process as the odds makers had to jack up the price to entice action the Blues way.
