After getting absolutely hammered in Game 3, the St. Louis Blues responded with a 4-2 victory in Game 4. That tied the series at two apiece as the series heads back to Boston.

St. Louis would take the lead just 43 seconds into the contest on Ryan O’Reilly’s fourth goal of the postseason. Boston would tie the score a little over 13 minutes into the period on a Charlie Coyle tally, but Vladimir Tarasenko would give St. Louis back the lead a little over two minutes later.

Brandon Carlo would score the only goal of the second period, a shorthanded tally at the 14:19 mark. That sent the game tied at two heading into the third, where O’Reilly would score his second goal of the game with a little less than 10 minutes left in the contest to give the Blues a lead they would not relinquish. Brayden Schenn added his fourth goal of the playoffs with a little less than two minutes left in the game to seal the victory.


Featured Game

Louis Blues (+130) vs. Boston Bruins (-157)

St. Louis Notes

St. Louis has shown incredible resiliency in winning key games on the road late in series during this postseason run. In the first round, they blew a 2-0 series lead, dropping each of the next two games in St. Louis, but rallied to win Game 5 in Winnipeg before winning the series. In Round 2, they trailed the Dallas Stars 3-2 in their best-of-seven series but won Game 6 in Dallas before winning the decisive game seven at home. Last round, they were tied at two with the Sharks before winning Game 5 in San Jose, then taking the series at home. Can they do that one more time in this huge Game 5 in Boston?

Boston Notes

The big news in Boston is the status of star defenseman Zdeno Chara. The possibility that he will miss Game 5 is looking increasingly likely, as he took a puck to the face on a shot by Brayden Schenn and suffered some fairly severe bleeding. He did not play in the third period but remained on the bench.

The power-play for the Bruins has been deadly in the postseason, but St. Louis has figured out a way to shut them down in the two losses that Boston has suffered. The Bruins may have been a perfect 4-4 in Game 3, but they are 0-5 in the two losses. A power-play goal clearly seems to be the remedy for a victory.

Goaltending Matchup:

That Jordan Binnington put together a stellar performance in Game 4 was not a surprise to anyone. During this postseason run, the St. Louis goaltender has allowed five or more goals four times and has responded by allowing two goals or less in each of the contests following those mediocre performances. The question is what we will see now in Game 5. In the second game following the mediocre performance, he looked outstanding in two of those contests, allowing two goals in one and pitching a shot out in the other. However, two games after giving up five goals San Jose in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, he gave up five goals again. Binnington has a 2.52 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

Rask did not play poorly in Game 4, he simply got outplayed. The Boston goaltender stopped 34 of 37 shots in the loss. He has now dropped two of the last three games against St. Louis. Consider that in the first round series against Toronto, the Bruins trailed 3-2 in that series as Rask had allowed 13 total goals through the first five games. Yet, he rattled off three straight victories and has now won 12 of his last 16 decisions. Rask has a 1.96 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage.

Stat Pack:

Blues:
Goals For: 2.96
Goals Against: 2.74
Power-Play: 17.3%
Penalty Killing: 73.7%

Bruins:
Goals For: 3.57
Goals Against: 2.10
Power-Play: 34.8%
Penalty Killing: 87.5%

Trends to Know

St. Louis Blues are:

8-3 in their last 11 games on the road.
4-9 in their last 13 games on Wednesday.
14-6 in their last 20 games against Eastern Conference opponents.

Boston Bruins are:

58-24 in their last 82 games at home.
2-5 in their last seven Stanley Cup finals games.
21-8 in their last 29 games against Western Conference opponents.

Prediction

It Is not a surprise to us that St. Louis came away with the victory in Game 4, as we were expecting this series to be tied at two, heading back to Boston for Game 5. We were even looking like we were going to be accurate on our prediction of St. Louis winning Game 4 3-2 when an empty net goal ruined our prediction.

Now we shift to Game 5, which is a must-win for Boston. While they have proven they can win in St. Louis and have proven during these playoffs that they can win a key game on the road late in a series to stay alive (Game 6 over the Maple Leafs in Toronto), this is the Stanley Cup finals after all. You simply can’t give away the home-ice advantage in a decisive Game 5 that you have at home.

Consider that the Bruins have never trailed in the series, which tells you a lot about their ability to pressure opponents and get the lead. That is what we expect here as well.

The total was first set at 5.0 for this contest but has moved to 5.5. The conventional wisdom would be to expect a tight-checking affair, making it low-scoring, but we look for Boston to pressure and dominate as they have in the odd-numbered games in this series. Boston won Game 1, 4-2, then won Game 3, 7-2. Both of those contests went over, and that is what we expect here. Take the Boston Bruins to win, 5-2.

ABOUT THE BLUES: Ryan O'Reilly broke out of a rut in a big way, ending an eight-game goal drought by scoring in the first minute before delivering the game-winning tally in the third period. Berube also lavished praise on the fourth line of Oskar Sundqvist, Alexander Steen and Ivan Barbashev, who each logged more than 17 minutes and were matched up against Boston's top line in Game 4. "I'll tell you what, Sundqvist's line was unreal," Berube said. "They did a great job against (Patrice) Bergeron all night. They were out there almost every shift against Bergeron's line. I thought they did a helluva job."

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Chara reportedly suffered a broken jaw when he was hit in the face with a puck in Game 4, but coach Bruce Cassidy did not rule him out even though the 6-foot-9 blue-liner was not at practice Wednesday. While Boston's top line usually sets the tone offensively, the No. 2 unit of Jake DeBrusk, David Krejci and David Backes has been mired in a slump, combining for only two assists in the series. “Talk is cheap at this time of the year,” said Krejci, who was held without a shot on goal in Game 4. “We’ve just got to look at ourselves in the mirror and do the things that we talk about doing.”

OVERTIME

1. Bruins D Matt Grzelcyk, out the past two games, practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday but remains in the concussion protocol.

2. St. Louis is 8-3 on the road in the playoffs, including a 3-2 overtime win in Game 2.

3. Bruins third-line C Charlie Coyle has scored in three straight games.

PREDICTION: Bruins 4, Blues 2

    Betting On Virtual Motorsports Betting On Virtual Motorsports Virtual motorsport races are drawing a lot of attention from sportsbooks and their players. For those in the sports betting world, the cancellation of major sports has left us with few wagering options. But while fans of basketball, baseball, or hockey are patiently waiting to see their favorite players return to action, motor racing bettors don't have to wait at all. Competitive motor racing barely missed a beat when COVID-19 shut down sports worldwide, thanks to the realism of virtual racing simulators. These programs are used regularly by drivers to keep their skills sharp without the high cost of real track practice. Therefore, many of the top racers in the world entered eSports tournaments just days after real-world events were canceled. The first of these events were held in March and became so popular that sportsbooks began to take notice and offer odds. This is an excellent opportunity for any bookmaker to use the momentum of this sport to fill the gaps left in the absence of most leagues. The success of these events just goes to show how far the realism of simulation racing has come in the eSports era. With professionals now involved, along with the sanctioning bodies of F1, NASCAR & IndyCar, sim racing has been put into the spotlight. Make no mistake; the age of competitive virtual motorsports is upon us. With that in mind, let's explore the big three leagues going on right now that you can bet on. eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series The NASCAR season was put on hiatus after just four races, but a new form of the sport is experiencing an explosion in popularity. The NASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational was created to pick up where the Cup Series left off and use the iRacing platform to finish the season. Taking place each Sunday, this series pits NASCAR drivers and dignitaries against one another on a virtual track. Names such as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, and Kyle Bush are a big reason for the early success. The iRacing platform makes the action feel as genuine as possible and is used for training on off days. Denny Hamlin suggested that around half of the people who work for or with NASCAR already have home setups, including wheels and pedals in their homes. This allowed for a quick transition for many races from the real to the digital world. The success of this new form of competition has been undeniable. The races run so far have been watched by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to rave reviews. The odds are available now for upcoming races at Dover and Martindale speedways. William Byron is 3/1 favorite to win both after taking the checkered flag in the last two races and Top-8 finishes in the other two. Timmy Hill is also a guy to keep an eye on. Hill has finished in the Top-3 in all but one race this year and is 15/2 heading into Dover. INDYCAR iRacing Challenge iRacing has also teamed up with INDYCAR to host a virtual racing series while real races are on hold. The competitors are a mix of NTT INDYCAR Series drivers, along with some special invitees such as F1 racer Lando Norris. Norris was a special guest driver for Arrow McLaren for last week's race at the Circuit of the Americas. The 20-year-old dominated the field in fact as he beat out the other 33 drivers on the virtual road course in Texas. Norris had more than 20,000 viewers watching his Twitch stream alone. The races last around 70 minutes and are broadcasted live on NBCSN with live commentary just like a day at the track would have. There is even a pre-race show featuring a national anthem presentation and more. The list of drivers includes seven Indianapolis 500 winners and features names like Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Simon Pagenaud. F1 eSports Virtual Grand Prix Series With the real-world Formula 1 series postponed, the F1 eSports Virtual GP series has stepped into the spotlight. Professional drivers, retired legends, full-time gamers, and celebrities go head to head in events that mirror the real-life series. This gives bettors a chance to continue watching and wagering on competitive racing on weekends. The major difference with the F1 Virtual Series is the platform that is utilized. Formula One has its own branded title developed by Codemasters. While not as realistic as the iRacing software, it is still a popular alternative for fans to watch. It must also be mentioned that this series is not a part of the competitive eSports series that is also currently active. This series is more of an exhibition event and features racers of varying driving and gaming talent. Races are 28 laps or less and follow qualifying to determine the starting positions for each race. The first race saw participants ranging from current F1 drivers Nicholas Latifi and Lando Norris, reserve talent Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Gutierrez, and legend Nico Hülkenburg. Formula 2 racers, Academy drivers, and pros from other series filled out the starting grid. Odds for these events have been popular betting options over the last few weeks. Heading into the next event, Team Renault is favorites to win a 4/1 with McLaren (5/1) and Mercedes (6/1), taking the next two spots on the odds board. The latter is an interesting play at those odds considering Guiterrez and Vandoorne are both F1 test drivers and gamers, making Mercedes a strong contender. These are just three of the major series going on right now, but IMSA, Porche, and the WRC all have eSports events running on a weekly basis. These series will continue to run and provide betting options even when real-world racing returns to action. This is the perfect time for the sports betting industry to embrace not only eSports but the competitive virtual racing scene. PayPerHead® agents can stand to benefit massively from this emerging sport. Especially during these trying times, having a weekly event for fans to bet on is a powerful thing. Any time you can get your clients interested in new events is time well spent. If your pay per head service provider does not include eSports on their list of odds, then it might be time to find a better option. At PayPerHead®, we pride ourselves on offering odds on a slew of virtual and simulation sports to keep your players busy while we await the return of major sports nationwide. If you are ready to switch providers to a company that offers a better variety of odd, then head over to the PayPerHead® and see what offers we have for new clients today!
