Avalanche vs. Blues Prediction

NHL Predictions: Will the Avalanche upset the Blues at home? 10/19/17

Will the Colorado Avalanche be able to hold off the St. Louis Blues at home when the two Western Conference foes meet tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Blues are a slim favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -115 to win, while the Avalanche is listed with a money line of -105 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

The Blues are coming off a 5-2 win at home over Chicago last night to improve to 5-2 on the season. St. Louis is putting up 3.14 goals per game while allowing 2.57 per contest. Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko each have five goals to lead the team, while Schwartz also has six assists. Jake Allen is the primary netminder and he has a 2.80 GAA over six games with a .917 save percentage.

Colorado has dropped two straight coming into tonight, including a loss to Nashville on Tuesday, 4-1. The Avs are now 4-3 on the season, but 2-0 at home. Colorado is averaging just 2.86 goals per game this season, but holding opponents to only 2.43 per contest. Colorado has four different players with six points and three with at least three goals. Matt Duchene and Sven Andrighetto each have three goals and three assists. Semyon Valamov is 3-2 in net with a 2.21 GAA and a .931 save percentage.

Bet on Blues vs. Avalanche

St. Louis has dominated the series with Colorado, winning six of the last seven meetings. However, the home team has had the edge in this series as well. The home team is 19-8 in the last 27 of this series and St. Louis is just 12-28-4 in its last 44 trips to Colorado. I like Colorado’s play in net right now, especially against a St. Louis team that played last night and had to travel following the game. The public is strongly behind the Blues, but I like the upset from the home team.
