In their last 10 games the Blues are 5-5, averaging 3.4 goals, 5.3 assists, four penalties and eight penalty minutes while giving up 2.8 goals per game.

Colorado Avalanche

Colorado have won 7 of their last 8 games and are 35-10 at home. They have 63-27 overall record ranking 1st in the Central Division. The Avalanche are 21-9-4 against divisional rivals. Colorado averages 8.8 penalty minutes per game, the ninth-most in the Western Conference and have gone 53-4-4 when scoring three or more goals.

Mikko Rantanen has 36 goals and 56 assists for the Avalanche. Lehkonen has six goals over the last 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Avalanche are 7-3, averaging four goals, 6.3 assists, four penalties and 10.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.6 goals per game.

BETTING TRENDS

St. Louis are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games on the road.

St. Louis are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games when playing on the road against Colorado.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Colorado's last 10 games against St. Louis.

Colorado are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games at home.

Prediction

The Avalanche beat the Blues in both games in St Louis and now they will try to end this at home and it all points like this is over. In the last 2 games the Avs dominated the Blues and outscored them 11-5. Colorado has lost only 10 games at home this season so I don't give the Blues much hope. Take the Avalanche.

PICK: Avalanche -1.5 (+100)
