Tied at one game apiece, the Western Conference Finals will hit the St. Louis ice for the first time in the series. And after closing around +115 on the road in Games 1 and 2, the Blues opened at -145 on their home ice in Game 3.
That created a +125 payout for the visiting Sharks, a number that was too good to pass up in the eyes of most bettors. Since opening, San Jose has drawn 60% of bets placed on the moneyline, a backing that caused oddsmakers to drop the Blues down to -135 this morning. That line didn’t last very long, though.
Even attracting only four out of 10 bets, the Blues quickly made their way back toward the opening number, as they’re now listed anywhere from -140 to -143. Much of the reason for that has been the size of the tickets that have been placed on them.
