(NHL) St. Louis vs. Colorado, 01/13/2021 10:30 PM, Score: 4 - 1
Money Line: -138.00 Colorado (Home)
Result: Loss
I'm playing on COLORADO. Considering that the Avs are favored to win the Stanley Cup, this line could easily be considerably higher. In fact, we're unlikely to often get Colorado, at home, for this reasonable a price. While the Blues aren't that far removed from winning a Cup, a lot of the key pieces from that team won't be on the ice. On offense, Tarasenko is hurt while Steen retired. Two of the Blues' top four defenders from the Cup team are gone. Bowmeester collapsed in a game last season while Pietrangelo is now with Vegas. With a lot of new faces, the Blues could have benefitted from some preseason games. They didn't get any though and had an abbreviated training camp. Unfortunately for them, their first game comes against arguably the most complete team in the league. Avs roll.
