We have another divisional clash in the NHL on Monday, November 28, and this one will be played in St. Louis, so check out the best Stars vs. Blues betting pick and odds.
Dallas is looking to snap a two-game losing streak when they visit St. Louis at Enterprise Center. The Blues are -127 moneyline favorites on BookMaker Sportsbook, while the total is set at 6 goals. These Central Division foes have met on four occasions last year, and the Blues won the series 3-1.
Stars scored just one goal from 42 shots in Colorado
The Dallas Stars (12-6-3-1, 14-8 ATS) have been inconsistent of late as they recorded three wins and three losses in the last six. Dallas is currently on a two-game losing run, and the Stars must be disappointed with the latest 4-1 road defeat against the Colorado Avalanche. They had 42 shots opposite Colorado’s 36, while they also outshot the Winnipeg Jets in the previous game, which also resulted in a loss.
Joe Pavelski scored the only goal for the Stars, and it was a power-play goal in the second period, in which Dallas dominated and had 11 more shots than the Avs, but that didn’t help them in the end. At this moment, the Stars have the second-best point-maker in the NHL, Jason Robertson, who has 35 points (G 18, A 17). Jamie Benn (G 10, A 14), Pavelski (G 10, A 14), and Roope Hintz (G 8, A 16) contributed 24 points apiece.
Jake Oettinger (8-2-3) is getting a start between the sticks when the Stars visit the Blues on Monday. The 23-year-old is surrendering 2.52 goals per game this year with a .917 SV% and one shutout.
Blues returned to winning ways in Florida
The St. Louis Blues (11-10-0-0, 9-12 ATS) were on an excellent run of seven consecutive wins, but that positive run snapped with a couple of defeats to Buffalo and Tampa Bay. Both of those losses came on the road, but the Blues managed to return home with one victory from that trip as they beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 in overtime.
Florida had a 3-0 and 4-1 lead, but St. Louis scored three goals in the space of three minutes in the third period to make it 4-4 and force overtime. Jordan Kyrou scored a game-winning and his second goal of the game to give the Blues a 5-4 win. The visitors had five players with two points; besides Kyrou, Torey Krug, Ryan O’Reilly, Brandon Saad, and Vladimir Tarasenko also played an important role in this win. For the season, St. Louis has nine players with 10+ points, but not a single one with 20+. Robert Thomas leads the team with 19 points (G 4, A 15), Kyrou has 18 (G 9, A 9), while Brayden Schenn chipped in 17 points (G 6, A 11).
Jordan Binnington (9-7-0) is slated to start at the goal against Dallas on Monday. The 29-year-old is allowing 3.05 goals per contest with a .901 SV% and one shutout.
Brayden Schenn exited the previous game with an upper-body injury, and it remains to be seen if he will suit up Monday versus the Stars.
- 2-5 in the last seven in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation

- 1-4 in the last four games following a loss of three or more goals

- 4-0 in the last four home games
Dallas Stars vs. St. Louis Blues Pick
St. Louis put a poor eight-game losing streak behind them and started playing much better, and even though Dallas is six points ahead in the 2nd place in the West, I am backing the hosts here. The Stars have the second-best offense in the NFL that is averaging 3.82 goals per game, but the Blues have been better in the last couple of weeks. Also, St. Louis won each of the last four home games, so I am going with the Blues’ win here.
Pick: Take the Blues to win (-127)
I expect to see plenty of goals here because both Oettinger and Binnington are struggling at the goal. Oettinger allowed nine goals in the last two games, while Binnington conceded ten in that span, and given how Dallas and St. Louis are playing lately, a low-scoring affair is out of the question here. Over is 10-2-2 in the Stars’ last 14 overall; Over is 8-1-1 in Dallas’ previous ten games playing on one day of rest, while Over is 6-1 in the Blues’ last seven overall.
Pick: Go Over 6 goals (-110)
