Colorado vs St. Louis: prediction for the NHL game
The Avalanche and the Blues square off in the NHL on Saturday. What to expect from this game? Look out for our prediction below.
Colorado are demonstrating good results. They won six of the last seven games and climbed to 8th in the Western Conference. The Avalanche lost to Anaheim (3:5), but overcame such opponents as Seattle (2:1 SO) and Washington (3:2). On average, the team concede about two goals per game. Their best attacking player is Mikko Rantanen, who has earned 60 performance points.
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis can't boast of similar success. They have too many injuries and struggle to compete. The Blues lost the last three games, to Chicago (3:5) and Buffalo (3:5) at home, and then to Arizona (0:5) away. Their defensive performance rises too many questions, the team allows three to four goals even against weak opponents. Moreover, St. Louis won only nine away games in regulation.
Ставка IT Colorado over 3.5 goals
In the last 3 games, the visitors conceded more than 3 goals.
Ставка 3rd period: both to score
In 3 out of 4 games of St. Louis, both teams scored in the third period.
St. Louis are in terrible form and have a losing streak of three games, while Colorado have looked great in their recent matches. The Avalanche will be at home, where they usually win in regulation. We will be backing them in this fixture.
Our prediction - Colorado to win
St. Louis often concede four goals even to outsiders, so we don't think they will be able to stop Colorado's powerful offense. We believe the Avalanche will score at least four here.
Second bet - Colorado IT over 3.5 goals
