NHL Betting Preview: St. Louis Blues vs. Chicago Blackhawks Odds, Analysis

Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 19 Apr 2016

The Chicago Blackhawks face the prospect of dropping consecutive home games in the playoffs when they host the St. Louis Blues in Game 4 on Tuesday, something that has not happened to them in their last 30 games at the United Center in the postseason.The Blackhawks are listed as consensus -160 favorites (bet $160 to win $100) to rebound with a victory at sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark following a tough 3-2 loss on Sunday.The last five times Chicago has lost a playoff game at home, the team has bounced back with a victory there, putting even more pressure on the defending Stanley Cup champions.The team was 70-0-4 with a lead going into the third period last game dating back to the start of last season but saw a 2-1 advantage turn into a rare loss when the Blues tallied two goals in the final 15 minutes for the win.Patrick Kane, the league's leading scorer during the regular season, had a costly four-minute, double-minor penalty for high sticking in the third, and St. Louis capitalized by tying the game and later going ahead to take a 2-1 series lead and paying off on the NHL betting lines.Kane has just three points in the first three games for the Blackhawks, all on assists, after becoming the first American-born player ever to lead the league in scoring. He has a tendency to come alive later in a series when the opposition has forgotten about him, but this will be the ultimate test considering the Blues have the opportunity to head home with a commanding 3-1 lead.Last year against the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Final, Kane had only two points on two goals through the first four games before erupting for five points (one goal and four assists) in the last two.However, that might be even more difficult for Kane to do in this spot versus a hot goaltender in Brian Elliott. The St. Louis netminder made a postseason career-high 44 saves in Game 3 and has stopped 105 of 109 shots in the series. He has been the difference for the Blues so far, facing 24 more shots than Chicago counterpart Corey Crawford and allowing two less goals.The under is 3-0-3 in the past six meetings for totals bettors, with St. Louis winning four of the last five according to the Odds Shark NHL Database.
