NCAA Basketball Betting Odds:
St. Louis Blues
The Blues swing into this evening’s matchup sporting a pitiful 19-20-4 record. That lackluster record nets St. Louis just 42 points on the season, placing them second to last in the Central Division. Right now the Central is led by the Winnipeg Jets, who have racked up 60 on the season. Accounting for the discrepancy between the Blues and the Jets, it’s pretty clear that St. Louis playoff hopes are all but down the drain. Nevertheless, St. Louis still has to take to the ice this Monday night. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that the Blues are in store for a beating. Right now the team ranks 22nd in scoring and 21st in goals allowed. For comparison, the Caps rank 7th in scoring and 13th in goals allowed.
Players to Watch: Ryan O’Reilly (16 G, 26 A, 42 PTS.), David Perron (15 G, 17 A, 32 PTS.), and Vladimir Tarasenko (14 G, 13 A, 27 PTS.).
The Caps swoop into this Monday night matchup flashing a 27-12-5 record that grants them 59 points on the season. That 59 point tally ranks Washington as the best team in the Metropolitan Division. However, things are pretty tight atop the division, seeing as how both Pittsburgh and Columbus are within three points of Washington. Recently Washington was upset by Columbus 2-1 at home, which means that they’ll be gunning for a rebound this evening. At the end of the day this spells more bad news for St. Louis.
Players to Watch: Alex Ovechkin (32 G, 18 A, 50 PTS.), Nicklas Backstrom (11 G, 34 A, 45 PTS.), and John Carlson (6 G, 36 A, 42 PTS.).
