Predators vs. Blues Prediction

I’m on the Blues here. St. Louis is simply the better team playing better hockey right now and getting them at home where they play their best hockey at a coin flip price sounds good to me. The Predators I’m sure will be eager for a bounce back after getting crushed by the Stars, but it’s not coming here. Give me St. Louis.
