If you put a gun to my head and told me that I could only watch one division for the rest of the season, I would have to go with the Central Division. I love hockey, and would hate to make that decision, but the quality of the teams that reside there is absolutely undeniable. I would not be stunned to see one of the teams from the Central represent the West in the Stanley Cup Final, and would definitely not be stunned to see either St. Louis or Dallas be the team that gets there. The fact that both of those teams will likely have to go through the Chicago Blackhawks, another Central Division team, tells you just how good this group of teams is. For now, the Blues and the Stars are going to have to battle it out against one another on Saturday night in what is arguably the best NHL odds game on the schedule.

Why bet on the St. Louis Blues
The race for the Central Division crown really couldn’t be any tighter, and while the St. Louis Blues (39-20-9) are currently sitting in third, they are only 1-point out of first. Better yet, they are showing the best form of the 3 teams at the top, having gone 7-3-0 in their last 10 games. The Blues have been great on the road this season going 20-11-4, and are a very impressive 15-7-3 against division opponents. That may all point to them being the likely winner of this game, but as you will see in a moment, Dallas have stats that equally as impressive. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 2.5 GPG, and are giving up 2.4 GPG.
Why bet on the Dallas Stars
Like I mentioned a moment ago, the Stars (40-20-8) are in possession of some stats that may lead to you place your wager on them. They are 21-10-1 on home ice this season, and are 14-7-2 overall against teams from the Central. The one knock against them at the moment is their recent form, as going 3-5-2 in their last 10 games is not something that we are used to seeing from this team so far this season. They looked to be breaking out of the skid with back to back wins, but took a 4-3 OT loss to the Canadiens in their last game, which has to go down as something of a surprise. The Stars are averaging 3.2 GPG, and are giving up 2.9 GPG.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The last 4 meetings between these two teams have all ended with a total of 5 or fewer goals, and it has been the Blues who have won 4 of those games. I like the Blues to get the win again in another tight affair.
