They have one of the poorest defenses in the league with over 48 goals conceded in 13 games. They were already in a deficit in scoring and poor defense has further made things difficult for them. They have to work around the corner to improve their defense to get better returns in the coming games.
Colorodo have been one of the strongest and most consistent teams on offense in the league. They average 3.69 goals per game with 48 goals scored in total. The duo of Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon have been the striking force for them with 23 goal involvements each.
Their defense has done its job perfectly, conceding less than 3 goals per game on average. They have done well limiting the opposition attacks to go uncounted for with over 393 saves by the goaltenders. They will try to strengthen it further going forward this season.
Blues vs Avalanche Betting Prediction
St.Louis have done well in their last couple of games and will look to repeat the same in this game too. They are 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win and have won 11 times in their last 15 games after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game.
Colorado have played better the whole season and are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Central division and are 63-16 in their last 79 home games. Though the over is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings, which makes things interesting here.
St. Louis come with the motivation to do well and are likely to keep it tight at the back. They can give a good account of themselves in this game.
