The Chicago Blackhawks host their Central Division rivals the St. Louis Blues for a matinee showdown at the United Center on Friday. The puck drop is set for 3:30 p.m. EST.

The Blackhawks could not beat Jordan Binnington the last time around as he and the Blues shut out Chicago 1-0 on Oct. 30. The Blues are -146 favourites to win on the NHL odds with a total of 5.5.

Blues vs. Blackhawks NHL Betting Odds

Binnington stopped 25 shots as the Blues shut out the Blackhawks 1-0 in their only head-to-head so far this season. In their past five meetings, the Under is 4-1 and St. Louis has the edge in wins with three. Both squads come into this after losing two of their past three games, but 80 per cent of bettors are taking St. Louis to bounce back in this one. The Blues are top-10 in scoring and they line up against a shaky Chicago defence. About 62 per cent of bets are taking the Over.

The Blues have played the Under in 10 of 18 games this season, including four of their past five games. They have not been any good against the spread either, failing to cover in seven of their past 10 games.

The Blackhawks’ offence has only managed to score five goals over the past three games, dropping them to 29th in league scoring. Their record is 8-8 on the Over/Under so far, and they have only covered the spread eight times on the year.

St. Louis Blues

The Blues hope to bounce back after a 4-2 loss to Detroit on Wednesday. After a red hot start, St. Louis is in a bit of a rut in November, going 3-6-1 over their past 10 games.

Jordan Kyrou picked up his 19th and 20th points of the year on Wednesday, snapping a two-game drought. In the midst of a career-best season, Kyrou leads the team in goals (8) and points (20).

David Perron’s been putting in work to turn his team around, picking up six points over the past four games.

The Blues have lost their last two road games, but still have a decent 5-4-1 record as the road team.

Chicago Blackhawks

Rookie Reese Johnson scored his first NHL goal in the Blackhawks 5-2 loss in Calgary Wednesday night. He added an assist for his first two points on the season. For the rest of the team it was a night to forget, as they only managed 21 shots on goal.

The Blackhawks look to continue what has been a great month on home ice so far, as they have won four of their five games at the United Center in November. That improves their home record to 4-4-1 compared to going 2-7-1 as the visitors.
