Colorado is 15-31 in the last 46 meetings between these two teams and 9-19 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams in Anaheim.

I’m trying to get to a point where I could make a case for the plus money and I’m just not there. The Ducks continue to struggle offensively and when it occasionally shows up, the defense falters. It’s a lose-lose situation for Anaheim right now. Colorado is rolling along with now and I expect a stronger effort for the Avs after the rest day. Give me Colorado on the puck line to get the price on Colorado down here.
