Florida Panthers vs St. Louis Blues NHL Odds, Picks, Live Score
St Louis Blues @ Florida Panthers Odds
Facing a fairly easy season closing schedule, St Louis is in Florida to battle the Panthers tonight. The Blues are looking to hold on to third place in the Central Division as they have a one point lead on Nashville. Retaining third means the Blues would avoid a first round matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks who have eliminated St. Louis in the first round two of the past three years. After they attended the postseason party last year, Florida is playing out the string on a disappointing season.
Sellers at the NHL trade deadline, some pundits pointed to the Blues as being a team that’s tanking. The exact opposite has happened though as the Blues have been the hottest team in the NHL with a 12-2-2 run since March 5. Following a huge 4-1 win over Nashville last Sunday, St. Louis stumbled during a 5-2 loss to Winnipeg at home on Tuesday. A Blues win, coupled with a Predators loss, will lock down third place and St. Louis would love to get that job done at the BB&T Center tonight.
Florida plays the Blues tonight and Buffalo on Saturday at home before closing out their 2016-17 NHL campaign against the Capitals on the road in Washington. The Cats season went south near the end of February as Florida went from a 28-20-10 playoff worthy record to their current 33-35-11 mark which has them postseason eliminated. Florida has dropped five straight contests, by a 20-9 margin, and they appear to be mailing it in. Not big big fans of giving up pucks with teams on the road, we are backing St. Louis with the (-140) SportsInteraction money line odds in this contest.

Best NHL Picks Tonight – April 6, 2017
Toronto is closing in on a playoff position and a win vs Tampa Bay at the Air Canada Centre would make that mission accomplished. A Maple Leafs victory would eliminate the Lightning but, more importantly, the Buds would pass the Bruins and move into third in the Atlantic Division. As well, if Ottawa were to lose to Boston, Toronto would vault into second place. Both squads should go all out on offense so we are backing the OVER on the SportsInteraction -5.5 (-115) game total price.
