BETTING TRENDS

St. Louis are 12-1 SU in their last 13 games.

St. Louis are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Colorado..

Colorado are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Colorado's last 5 games against St. Louis.

Prediction

The Blues have already clinched the playoff berth and are scoring 5 goals per game and allowing only 2.7 goals per game. The Avalanche clinched the best record in the conference so they don't really care what happen in these remaining games, one of the reasons why are they losing lately. With the Blues playing great offense and the Avs so relaxed I think we should take underdog.
