Picks for Blues vs. Avalanche in Game 2 of second round in 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs

We go over the moneyline and goal total for Blues vs. Avalanche in Game 2 of the second round of the 2022 NHL playoffs on Thursday.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche continue their respective runs to the Stanley Cup in Game 2 of their Western Conference second round series on Thursday, May 19 at Ball Arena in Denver. Puck drop in 9:40 p.m. ET and the game is on TNT. Colorado leads the series after a 3-2 overtime win in Game 1.

All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Blues vs. Avalanche: Game 2 prediction

Goal Line: Blues +1.5 (-125); Avalanche -1.5 (+105)
Blues: +185
Avalanche : -230
Over/Under: Over 6.5 (-130); Under 6.5 (+110)

As expected the Colorado Avalanche were going to have a much tougher time with St. Louis than they did in a first-round sweep of the Nashville Predators. Blues goalie Jordan Binnington had 51 saves in Game 1 and with a little more push from St. Louis offensively there is a chance for a steal on the road. I expect Colorado thinks they might have gotten away with one and will bring their ‘A’ game for Game 2.

Pick: Avalanche
