Blues at Avalanche picks and predictions
Avalanche 4, Blues 3
The Avalanche (-240) will get this one done, sending the Blues (+190) to the golf course. However, you can't risk nearly two and a half times your potential return, and this is going to be a close game. St. Louis certainly won't get quietly into the night.
The BLUES +1.5 (-122) are worth a small-unit play in this elimination game. St. Louis has the offensive weapons to make a run at it in Denver, but it will come up just short. It wouldn't be surprising to see overtime decide this one, and if so, the Blues on the puck line would be a winner.
OVER 6.5 (-108) is also worth a small-unit play, but be careful. We might get off to a slow start, especially as the Blues have the nerves of an elimination game. St. Louis won't want to make any mistakes, and Colorado won't want to do anything silly to let the Blues hang around. However, as the game goes on, we'll see the offense pick up late.
