Avalanche vs. Blues Pick

NHL Predictions: Will Avalanche, Blues stay under total? 2/8/18

Are the Colorado Avalanche and host St. Louis Blues primed for a low-scoring affair tonight when they meet at 8PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: St. Louis. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Blues are a -170 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Avalanche are a +150 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. St. Louis opened as a -175 fave before the odds dropped slightly.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: St. Louis. As of Thursday afternoon, 68 percent of public bets have been placed on the Blues. Online wagers have also indicated that 76 percent of public bets are on the under.

Who We Like: St. Louis has won both previous meetings this season and three in a row in the series. The Blues are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings, while the under is 6-4. Colorado has won two of its last three games and six of its last 10. The under is 5-4-1 in those contests. St. Louis has lost two of its last three, but won six of its last 10. The under is 7-3.

I have to roll with the under here. The Avs have a strong offense, but expect it to be thwarted by a strong Blues defense and a goaltender in Carter Hutton who has an incredible save percentage of over .940 on the season. Bets are pouring in on the under and for good reason.
