Sharks vs. Blues Prediction

I’m on the Blues -1.5 here. The Sharks at this point are simply playing out the string and I’m not interested in backing them the rest of the season, especially when the Blues are on the other side making a desperate push to crash the playoffs and make one last effort to steal the final Wild Card spot. The Blues are the better team playing some of their best hockey of the season and I’m not going to deviate from that, especially when the Sharks are struggling as badly as they are right now. Give me St. Louis -1.5.

Chris’s Pick St. Louis -1.5
