The Colorado Avalanche (2-4-0) started the season as one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup, which they still are, +550 at WynnBET Sportsbook, but struggled to find consistency early on. Colorado’s Powerplay is an example of where they could be more successful by combining just nine percent of the odds with man’s advantage.
Darcy Kuemper (2-3-0, 3.22 GAA, .900 SV%) is the expected goalkeeper for the Avalanche. Kuemper played well on Tuesday, stopping 26 of 28 shots he faced but lost to the Vegas Golden Knights.
The St. Louis Blues (5-0-0) began their unbeaten run that season with a 5-3 win over Colorado on October 16.
Jordan Binnington (4-0-0, 2.75 GAA, 0.919 SV%) should be in the game for the Blues tonight. Binnington allowed the Kings three goals on his last appearance but was supported by a strong offense that scored seven goals.
Here are the odds for that matchup, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 6 (over -115 / under -105)
The undefeated blues will lose a couple of key pieces tonight in center Ryan O’Reilly and left winger Brandon Saad. St. Louis needs veterans Tyler Bozak and James Neal to rise in their place.
Not having O’Reilly is bad for the blues power play, which is currently firing at 37.5 percent. The power play of the Avalanche currently has a success rate of just nine percent, which should regress positively to the mean, while the power play of St. Louis should soon fall from its explosiveness.
Colorado will end the undefeated run of the Blues tonight.
I’ll take the Avs on the moneyline at -120 and the puck line at -1.5 (+190).
