Avalanche at Hurricanes tips and predictions
Hurricane 4, avalanche 3
That HURRICANES (-135) Look for a little revenge in Raleigh after the Avalanche (+110) handled Carolina fairly easily in Denver last weekend.
The Avs are playing for the first time since Monday, and it’s 12-1 in their last 13 games going 2 days apart. Colorado has also won 13 of their last 17 games away from home.
That dominance on the road will be tested for the Avs, however, as Carolina have won 40 of their last 55 home games, which is an impressive 72.7%.
Puck Line/Against the Scatter
The Avalanche +1.5 (-240) will cost you almost 2 1/2 times your potential return, and that’s too expensive if you prefer a little insurance rather than claiming it outright.
OVER 6.5 (+100) Here’s a solid game, although you’ll buck the trend a bit. However, play it lightly.
Carolina has conceded the Underdog 4-1 in the money in their last 5 games, including just 5 goals in Saturday’s first game between Canes and Avs in Denver.
The Under also leads the Avalanche 7-3 in their last 10 games overall, including 4-1 in their last 5 away. However, Colorado is rested and the over is 17-8 in their last 25 games when played on 2 rest days.
