All signs points to a Blues victory right? Not so fast, the Blues has looked pretty suspect in their last three games. Meanwhile, the Jets have been putting the puck in the net the last three games with nine goals overall. Both teams look to have to good health. So no concerns on that front. However, the line movement so far in this game is interesting. Currently. 54% of all Off-Shore bettors are siding with the Blues today. Yet the Jets line has moved from 2.18 to 1.99. You have to consider this when picking between these two teams. Sure, the Blues look to be the better team, but it seems their is some value in the home dog here with potential “sharp” money on the Jets. We look to follow “sharp” money any chance we get cause it works. Best of Luck!
