Blues vs. Avalanche: Game 5 prediction

Goal Line: Blues +1.5 (-120); Avalanche -1.5 (+100)
Blues: +210
Avalanche: -260
Over/Under: Over 6.5 (+105); Under 6.5 (-115)

The Colorado Avalanche flexed their muscles in the two wins at St. Louis to take command of this series. The Blues looked unhinged in Game 4 with their cheap shots on Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri, but yet still watched Kadri put a hat trick up on them. Colorado looks too strong, too deep, too talented and I don’t think St. Louis has any confidence in goalie Ville Husso.

Pick: Avalanche +1.5 (+100)
