The Winnipeg Jets (third in the Central Division) will look to get back into the win column Tuesday night after their first home loss of the season, a 2-0 decision against the Islanders on Saturday.  It could be a challenge for the Jets, however, as the Blues (second in Central) haven’t lost consecutive games all year.  St. Louis dropped a 4-1 decision against Anaheim on Sunday.

The Blues opened as slim favourites to win on the NHL odds, with a total of 5.5.

Blues vs. Jets NHL Betting Odds

These teams split the four-game season series when they last met in 2019-20.  Each team won once at home and once on the road.  The total went Over twice, Under once and ended as a push once.

St. Louis is looking like a serious contender this year and sit at 4-1-1 on the road.  They’ve also won five of their last six games in Winnipeg.  The Blues have been a nice cover option, going 7-3 against the spread and covering in four of six road games.  The total has gone Under in four of St. Louis’ last six games.

Home ice has been a nice boost for the Jets, as they’ve won four of five games in Winnipeg to start the year.  They’re 6-5 ATS overall, although it’s worth noting that four of those covers have come at home.  The total has gone Over in three of the Jets’ five home games.

St. Louis Blues

The Blues will be looking for a bounce-back game after their loss in Anaheim on Sunday.  Brandon Saad opened the scoring for St. Louis just 13 seconds into the game, but it was the only shot that beat Anaheim goalie John Gibson.  Saad, who missed four games in COVID protocols, has five points (4G, 1A) in his first six games with St. Louis, after coming over in the off-season as a free agent.  Jordan Binnington stopped 23 of 26 shots faced against Anaheim.  With backup Ville Husso still in COVID protocols, Binnington should get the start again on Tuesday.  He’s looked good this year, posting a 5-2-1 record with a 2.52 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.  Binnington has a 2-2-0 career record against Winnipeg, with a 2.74 GAA and .900 SV.  David Perron leads the team with 11 points (6G, 5A) in 10 games.

Winnipeg Jets

Winnipeg’s eight-game point streak was snapped with their loss against the Islanders Saturday night.  It was both the Jets’ first shutout loss and first home loss of the season.  Backup Eric Comrie allowed two goals on 29 shots in his second straight start.  Comrie has been starting in place of Connor Hellebuyck, who has been dealing with an illness.  Hellebuyck is reportedly feeling better, although it’s unclear if he’ll be good to go on Tuesday.  Comrie is 3-1-0 this year with a 1.98 GAA and .926 SV, while Hellebuyck is 3-2-2 with a 3.42 GAA and .899 SV.  Comrie has never faced St. Louis in his career.  Hellebuyck is 8-4-1 with a 2.07 GAA and .933 SV against the Blues.  Kyle Connor (8G, 8A) leads the team in both goals and points this season.
