Vancouver Canucks (5.5) vs. St Louis Blues (-175) Preview & Prediction (10/17/2019)

The Vancouver Canucks will be in St. Louis on Thursday taking the ice against the Blues at the Enterprise Center. The Canucks will be looking for their fourth win in a row after beating up the Detroit Red Wings 5-1 on Tuesday.

The St. Louis Blues will be looking to put an end to a two-game skid following a 3-2 loss against the Islanders in New York last Monday. The Blues will need to tighten up the skates on defense if they want to get the win at home.

The Vancouver Canucks are now 3-2-0 following a 5-1 win against Detroit their last time on the ice. The Canucks were able to outshoot Detroit 32-27 and won 28 of 52 faceoffs. They were given five power-play opportunities in the game and managed to put the puck in the net on three of them. Vancouver was sharp on defense, keeping the Red Wings from scoring each of the three times the Canucks were forced to skate shorthanded. They had 15 blocked shots and nine takeaways in the game.

On the season, Vancouver has been good for an average of 3.40 goals per game while giving up 2.20. They have been able to fire 29.6 shots per game while allowing 30.0 on the defensive end of the ice. They have scored on 21.1 percent of their power-play opportunities with four goals and a 93.8 penalty kill percentage.

The St. Louis Blues are now 3-1-2 following a 3-2 loss in New York against the Islanders on Monday. The Blues were outshot 23-32 in the game while winning 35 of 57 faceoffs. They scored a goal on one of two power-play opportunities and had a penalty kill the only time they skated shorthanded. St. Louis was good for 22 blocked shots and eight takeaways in the game.

The Blues have been able to find the net for an average of 3.17 goals per game while giving up 3.33. They have fired an average of 28.5 shots per night while allowing 32.7 on the defensive end of the ice. St. Louis has four power-play goals converting 26.7 percent of their opportunities to go along with a 91.7 penalty kill percentage.

The St. Louis Blues are giving up a little over a goal per game more when it comes to the defensive numbers. They are also playing at home and have a crowd that likes to get wild. Both of these teams are strong when skating a man down but the Canucks are spending an average of 22 minutes longer in the box per game. I like the Blues turning that into a win at home. I’m going with St. Louis -175.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (NBA,NHL & MLB)
C.O.W. = (Chances of Winning) – The ‘C.O.W.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record using their short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF WINNING’ percentage for their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.

C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.

DMVI = (Daily Market Value Index) – The DMVI is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the DMVI, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams. The DMVI is a tool to find value vs. the current line.

VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 7-game cycle.

  • BULLISH = Team is either (7-0, 6-1, or 5-2) in their last 7 games.
  • NEUTRAL = Team is either (3-4 or 4-3) in their last 7 games.
  • BEARISH = Team is either (0-7, 1-6 or 2-5) in their last 7 games.

L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
