NHL Free Pick : St. Louis at Colorado 1/22

NHL Free Pick 1/22


Last time out, our NHL Free Pick nailed the underdog victory by the Blues over the Red Wings.  Now St. Louis has to go west to the thin mountain air of Colorado. The Avs stand in their way.  Why is St. Louis the road favorite in this one?  Good morning and welcome to HRWager.  We will look at which way to invest right now here at the HRW.



NHL Free Pick : St. Louis Shots

Key stat here is that while the Blues have won three straight that their shot differential is horrid. 67 shots they have taken while yielding 117.  Quality has something to do with it but few teams can continue to withstand this type of barrage and have success.  Their defensive rotation is a shambles.  They had only five healthy bodies against the Wings.  With the lack of oxygen in the air, their defense will be even more taxed tonight.

Colorado on a Roll

Power play has been cashing in at over twenty percent clip as of late.  Want a piece of historical trend to hang your hat on?  9-26-4 is St. Louis in Colorado.  This is about as good as it gets.  Both teams are nearly close in record.  Each team is riding a hot streak but that shot differential will spell doom as soon as the Blues get tired.  Tonight is the spot for a lean to take place.

History and current events collide in this one.  +100 is the price you can get on Colorado.  This is much better than a coin flip tonight.  Positive expectation so high that a double wager could even be warranted.  Good fortune in tonight’s action and we will see you tomorrow here at the HRW.
