For the past several seasons, the expectations for the St. Louis Blues were basically the same. Sportsbooks has season win total of around 95 points and they quickly disappear in the playoffs. Ho-hum.
Coming into this year, more of the same was anticipated from St. Louis despite finishing 22-8-2 when Mike Yeo was given the coaching reins after a mid-year switch and taking Western Conference champion Nashville to six games in the second round.
However, the Blues have fooled everyone and as of the start of November, they are the top bet for NHL picks at +7.7 units, thanks 10-3 SU record.
