The Colorado Avalanche is set to take on St. Louis Blues in what should be a very interesting matchup from a betting perspective. Not only is that evident by the fact that the Avalanche have remained undefeated in their last five games, but also due to how inconsistent the Blues have been over the course of their last couple games.
While that might make the Avlance feel like a sure thing, you have to remember that these two have played, the Blues still managed to pull off at least one win during their six games series this season. With that being said, and both teams having somewhat appealing odds, this could be a game that you can make some money on.
Let’s start by examining the Colorado Avalance, who are 5-0 in their last five games and have beaten St Louis Blues in their last two games. Furthermore, the Avalance has outscored their opponents 18-8 in their last ten games, giving them an average of 3.6 points per game.
The Avalance’s offense has been led by the tandem of André Burakovsky and Nathan MacKinnon, who have combined for five goals and seven assists in their last five games. That’s combination is going to make the Avalanche very hard to beat, which is why you might not want to bet against them.
St. Louis Blues
The St. Louis Blues are singing the blues with a 2-3 record in their last five games that has the organization in a tailspin. On the plus side, the Blues did outscore their opponents 19-13 in their last five matchups, but nine of those points were against the Minnesota Wild in a bizarre matchup.
That means the Blues have scored 10 points in their last four games, giving them an average of only 2.5 goals per game. They have also been defeated twice this week by the Avalance, who lead their season series with a record of 5-1.
Unfortunately for the struggling Blues, they will likely be without Vince Dunn, who suffered a foot injury a week ago. While Dunn’s +/- is -8 over the course of the season, he has contributed 14 assists to his team this season as well.

Free Colorado Avalance vs St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction: Under 6
Just go with the under on this game and make yourself a nice little chunk of money. The reason for this is that the two teams have played each two times this week, meaning they are likely running on fumes at this point.
Think about it! How is either team going to go over 6 points after two matchups against each other in the same week? If nothing else, these teams know each other very well by now, which is why this is going to come down to a low-scoring defensive game.
