Vegas has been good all year and have displayed the ability to score points in bunches. For St. Louis, we all know the defensive struggles they have had this year. I love Vegas in this one. They are the better team in every aspect and should be able to score with ease against a soft Blues defense. I like all three bets in this one as a parlay.
