Colorado at St. Louis

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 6.5 +110 (risk 1 to return 2.1) RESULT: LOSS
The first two games of the series have stayed UNDER and Jordan Binnington stopped 30 shots as St. Louis won Game 2 to tie the series at 1-1. The Blues won 4-1 and Darcy Kuemper had 28 saves for Colorado after stopping 23 shots in Game 1, which the Avalanche won 3-2 in overtime. The Blues have gone UNDER their last three games and they have allowed only nine goals their past five games. Binnington has won eight of his past 10 decisions and playing as he did in 2019 when he led St. Louis to the Stanley Cup championship and Kuemper has allowed nine goals his last five starts and this was his first loss in the playoffs. Kuemper allowed one goal with his team down two men and another on a turnover in Thursday's game. The UNDER is 9-4 in Colorado's last 13 games versus a team that gave up two or fewer goals its previous game and St. Louis is 4-0-1 UNDER its last five conference semifinal games. This appears to be a grind-it-out series and play the UNDER.
