Avalanche 5, Blues 3

Against the spread (ATS)

At plus-money, the AVALANCHE -1.5 (+155) are worth a look. In their recent five-game win streak, they covered the puck line in four of those victories, including Thursday’s series opener against the Blues.

Conversely, St. Louis has failed to cover the puck line in five of its past eight losses as an underdog.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER 6 (-105) is 3-0-1 across the past four games for the Avalanche, and 6-2-1 in the previous nine as a road favorite. The Over is 3-1-1 in the past five at home for the Blues, while going 3-1-1 in their past five as underdogs.

The Over is also 3-0-1 across the past four head-to-head meetings in St. Louis.
