Projected Avalanche and Blues lines for Game 1, betting lines

Published

on

Finally, some Avs hockey again. Tonight, Ball Arena, Game 1, Round 2, St. Louis Blues. All the talking has been done. Time to play some hockey. Jared Bednar, in keeping with his policy of late, is not disclosing his lineup for Game 1. So, these Avalanche lines are our best projections:

Nichushkin-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Landeskog-Kadri-Lehkonen

Burakovsky-Compher-Kubel

Cogliano-Sturm-O’Connor

D

Toews-Makar

Girard-Manson

Byram-E. Johnson

Kuemper

We don’t know if Andrew Cogliano will actually be in Game 1 or not. If not, I would suspect Darren Helm will be there. But he was in the lineup regularly before getting hurt, and he’s cleared again. So, we’ll see on that.

For the Blues:

As you can see from the tweets above from Blues beat writer Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Blues are going with 11 forwards and seven D-men. They did that in the Wild series too.

Jordan Binnington will start in goal for the Blues.

What are the betting lines on Game 1?

At SuperBook Colorado, Avs are -210 favorites (that means you have to bet $210 to win a $100 profit). There are some attractive odds boosts available too. That’s where you can make some real money.

Stay up late tonight, for a lot of content on this here site, kids. I hope I have happy words to write.
