Wild vs Blues: Game 6 prediction

Goal Line: Wild +1.5 (+255); Blues -1.5 (-205)
Wild: -110
Blues: -110
Over/Under: Over 6.5 (-105); Under 6.5 (-115)

The battle between Central Division rivals has been as good as expected and hopefully we’re just seeing the beginning of a long stretch of Stanley Cup playoff series between the Blues and Wild. However St. Louis has been just a little better much like it was during the regular season, when the Blues won all three contests and two in overtime. Minnesota’s talented forward Kirill Kaprizov has shown his playoff mettle with seven goals. I expect he’ll get at least one more in Game 6, but it won’t be enough to stop the re-energized Blues in their hunt to win a second Stanley Cup in four years.

Pick: Blues -110
