The Avalanche are 8-3 in their last 11 road games and 47-22 in their last 69 overall. The Blues are 7-19 in their last 26 home games and 5-12 in their last 17 overall. The over is 11-5 in Avalanche last 16 overall. The under is 7-2 in Blues last 9 overall. The Avalanche are 7-22 in the last 29 meetings in St. Louis and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 36-15 in the last 51 meetings. The favorite is 39-17 in the last 56 meetings.

The Colorado Avalanche are going to be favored because they're one of the more consistent teams in the league and have proven themselves time and time again. However, the St. Louis Blues are a lot more talented than what they've shown this season and it was only a matter of time before they turned things around. It's probably going to take more than three wins to convince people they're back on track, but it is the best hockey they've played in quite some time. There's value to the Blues and the plus money. I'll take it.
