Avalanche vs. Blues Prediction

I’m leaning towards the Blues +1.5 here. I could also see the Blues winning this game as this is a great matchup between two teams that are red hot right now. However, the Avs have played in a lot of close games as of late and I think this could be another one to add to the list. The Blues play their best hockey by far at home, and despite some success here and there, the Avs are still posting a losing record overall on the road this season. I’ll side with St. Louis +1.5 here.

Chris’s Pick St. Louis +1.5
