The Vegas Golden Knights need some help to catch the Colorado Avalanche atop the West Division standings – and a rematch against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday might just allow them to help themselves. The Golden Knights sit four points back of the Avalanche for top spot, but are heavily favoured on the road against a Blues team that has dropped seven consecutive games and sports one of the worst home records in the entire NHL.

Golden Knights vs. Blues Betting Analysis

Vegas is an unsurprising hefty favourite after rolling over the Blues 6-1 in their previous meeting Monday night. The Golden Knights improved to 4-0-1 against St. Louis for the season and has scored a whopping 16 goals in three games at Enterprise Center. The Blues, on the other hand, have looked positively dreadful over the past 2+ weeks, picking up just one point over that span while getting outscored by a 25-8 margin.

Also not a surprise: 86 percent of Sports Interaction bettors are siding with the visitors. And nearly three-quarters of participants are taking the O5.5 at -118 (with the U5.5 set at -102). Given the recent history between the teams, you can understand why: the teams have combined for an average of 7.4 goals over their five head-to-head encounters this season, with all five of those games producing at least six goals.

The Golden Knights have rediscovered their offence after struggling on a four-game homestand against Los Angeles and Minnesota, scoring just eight goals in four games while going 1-3 SU. Keeping the goals coming will be important in their quest to overtake Colorado, which will mean bigger contributions from key skaters – including veteran winger Mark Stone. He has gone seven straight games without a goal and has just 12 through his first 36 games this season.

St. Louis Blues

The Blues have officially moved into sell-now mode as they prepare for next week’s trade deadline with their playoff hopes in shambles. That could see the rest of this week serve as a showcase for a handful of St. Louis skaters that might have new addresses following Monday, most notably winger Mike Hoffman. He has nine goals and 12 assists in 21 games this season but could see his production increase with a top-six role on a more prolific offence.
