Chris’ Pick

I’m looking at the Blues here. I just think this game should be lined closer to a coin flip, as I’m not the hugest fan of the Jets right now in their current form. On the other side, the Blues have been solid and the goaltending has been a lot more sharp as Jordan Binnington is back in good form and he’s a top-10 goaltender in my eyes when he’s in form. I think the Blues get the job done here. Give me St. Louis and the plus money here.
