Bet NHL Action For Monday, March 12, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Anaheim opened as a -175 favorite before the line dropped some, while the total has remained at 5. Anaheim can be found between a -160 and -165 favorite if you shop around, while the Blues range from a +135 to a +145 underdog.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Monday afternoon, 74 percent of public bets have come in on the Ducks. Online wager info also shows that 65 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

St. Louis goalie Carter Hutton (neck) has been upgraded to probable for tonight. For the Ducks, Patrick Eaves (illness) has been on injured reserve since October.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Blues have been in a terrible funk since the All-Star Break and are 23rd in the NHL in goals per game (2.7), while remaining solid defensively as they are seventh in goals against (2.6). The Ducks are difficult to score on, especially at home. With St. Louis employing two goaltenders in Hutton and Jake Allen who can both get the job done, I’m rolling the dice on a very low-scoring game tonight.
