The Avs Need Mariano Rivera To Close Out The Blues!!..Tonight's EBR Winner: A Daily Bet In The NHL Playoffs

The NHL playoffs are deep into Round 2 with two teams moving on and two on the verge of clinching. This blog has been an everyday staple in the life of the EBR bettors who like to cash tickets.

GAME OF THE NIGHT - Colorado Avalanche @ St. Louis Blues

Barstool Sportsbook Odds: AVS ML -175, Over 6.5 -120

Murls Breakdown: 

Growing up a Yankees fan that had Mariano Rivera meant that if the Yanks had a lead going into the 9th and we heard "Enter Sandman" it was over and most fans would get a lead on the traffic.  The Avs need this closer… 

Mcdavid is this for the Oilers, Vasy is this for the Lightning and Nate Dogg wants to be that guy for the Avs.  His end to end goal with 2 minutes left was amazing and left most fans booking tickets for the next round but the team exhaled and it backfired.  

If he wants to be the killer that is needed, he has to close the series in OT in the last game.  But the Blues showed their will and do not die attitude again. The Blues are a tough out but the last game is more on the Avs not understanding how to close. Champions know how to end a series and give the other team no life. Now we will all see what kind of metal the Avs are made of or do they blink again.  I hope not personally because a Mcjesus vs Mackinnon would be a modern day Bird vs Magic.

Get it done on the road and rest up! Bednar has to be cold tonight… no feelings, double shift the best players, ride the hot players, have Makar everywhere this is it you do not want to go back to play a game 7.  Finish this series off!  I have a feeling the Swedish captain will come up big tonight for the Avs.
