If you’re betting this game, you might want to be wary of fatigue here as the Blues are not only in a back-to-back situation after playing in Vancouver on Sunday, they’re also playing their third game in four nights – all on the road. Can they take care of business against a slumping Flames team or will fatigue catch up with them?

Blues vs. Flames NHL Betting Odds

Monday has been kind to the Blues as they’ve won four straight on the day. However, road games have been challenging for them of late. They were 3-8 in their last 11 heading into Sunday night’s contest in Vancouver.

As for the Flames, their trends don’t look great right now. They are 1-8 in their last nine versus a team with a winning record and 2-5 in their last seven as a favorite. They might not be a great investment here.

St. Louis Blues

The Blues are one of the best teams in the NHL right now as they were 24-11-5 entering Sunday’s action and were 12-4-1 in their last 17 contests. The play of netminder Ville Husso has been a big key in their recent performance as he is 7-2-1 with a 2.02 GAA. However, keep in mind that he played on Sunday, so we’re likely to see Jordan Binnington in net on Monday. Binnington is 11-8-3 with a 3.05 GAA and .906 save percentage. Those numbers are all a big step down.

The reality of this game might be that the best bet is the over. While the Blues look like good value as a potential underdog, we should see plenty of goals either way. The Flames can’t keep the puck out of the net and Binnington has struggled this year. That means we could see a high-scoring affair.

Calgary Flames

The Flames are an absolute mess right now and it’s unclear how they can turn this ship around. This is a team that started the year 15-4-5 as was riding high with the best in the Western Conference. As we take a look at the standings on Monday, this team is treading water at .500 and has just three wins in their last 14 games.

Their defense and goaltending have let them down in a huge way as they can’t seem to keep their opponents from lighting the lamp. They’ve allowed 26 goals in their last six games and it’s hard to win games at that rate. Lead netminder Jacob Markstrom was solid early in the year but has struggled in January, posting a lousy GAA of 3.21. Unless he’s better on Monday, the Flames will likely lose.
