Colorado Avalanche vs St. Louis Blues Betting Odds
The Colorado Avalanche are favourites to defeat the St. Louis Blues with the odds at -149 for their win while the odds for the Blues’ win are at 308. The draw is set at 376.
The total goals margin is set at 6 with both -118 for over and 105 for under.
The Colorado Avalanche had a very successful trip to St. Louis, winning Games 3 and 4 and are now on the brink of making the Western Conference Finals for the first time in 20 years. Interestingly enough, Colorado’s general manager Joe Sakic was the captain of that team that lost that series to Detroit back in 2002. A win at home here in Game 5 seems very likely as Denver is where the Avalanche only lost six times in regulation.
They’ve beaten St. Louis by three goals each of the last two games and that correlates with Jordan Binnington going out for the series. Before the injury, the Avalanche were averaging just 2 goals a game but against Ville Husso they are now up to 5 a game. This is a matchup nightmare and Wednesday night is when the Blues’ season will be put to bed.
