The Plugs Game Prediction

💎 THE SABERS ML +104 ( 1u )

  • I know that we have not seen the best efforts from this Buffalo team lately, they come into this game laying some inconsistent hockey. They have been alternating wins and losses over their last six games, but I think they will give a good fight tonight and look to snap that streak here and grab their second win in a row. This St. Louis team has not been that great either, they have lost two of their last three games and they have allowed 13 goals in those three games. The Blues power play is only at 9.2%, which is one of the worst in the NHL, and is part of the reason they are only scoring 2 cgoals per game this year. Buffalo is 5-5-2 on the road, while St. Louis is 6-3-0 at home. The Blues have played their best hockey at home, but I don't really care, I think we should take the Sabres in this matchup. Buffalo has the slightly better goalie and the better special teams. I trust this Sabers team more then the Blues right now and we have a good price with Buffalo here.
