BETTING TRENDS

Colorado are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against St. Louis.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Colorado's last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of St. Louis' last 11 games against Colorado.

St. Louis are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games at home.

Prediction

The Blues took a huge win on the road in Game 5 to remain alive on the series and now they'll host the Avs in Game 6 to try to tie this series the problem is they have lost 5 of their last 7 games at home and Colorado have won 4 of their last 5 on the road. However the Blues will be more motivated so I expect another close game where the Blues will at least cover the puck line.

PICK: Blues +1.5 (-165)
