Blues (+140) at Bruins (-160)
Pick: Blues to win (+140)
Pick: Patrick Maroon to score (+425)
Wednesday night, the Blues will storm the gates of TD Center in an attempt to claim Lord Stanley’s Mug, and don’t be surprised if they are successful in doing so.
Saint Louis has the best road record during the playoffs this year (10-3) and lucky for them, they get to play on the road in this spot. Bruins fans must be confident thinking that there is no way the Bruins will lose three games at home in the Stanley Cup Finals – something that has only been done twice in the Expansion Era, including 1990 when the Bruins themselves did it.
Expect the Blues to run the majority of play in Game 7, bouncing back from the late-game thrashing they received in Game 6 on Sunday night. Goaltending in June is always huge, since every goal scored is monumental. Jordan Binnington and Tuukka Rask both had stretch of excellence, but can be beaten.
Boston has out-scored Saint Louis, 21-14, so far in the series, but it only takes as few as one more to lift the Cup.
Can F Patrick Maroon score another game winning goal for his hometown team? We think that would be the perfect cap to this story so if you’re feeling lucky, sprinkle some money on him potting a goal tonight as well.
See you on the other side Bettors, it all comes down to this.
