The Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights meet Tuesday in NHL action at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Colorado Avalanche look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Colorado Avalanche are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 26.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Mikko Rantanen leads Colorado with seven goals, Nathan MacKinnon has 12 assists and Nazem Kadri has 34 shots on goal. Defensively, the Colorado Avalanche are allowing 2.2 goals per game and are killing 89.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Philipp Grubauer has allowed 16 goals on 253 shots faced and Hunter Miska has allowed seven goals on 59 shots.
The Vegas Golden Knights look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with seven goals, Mark Stone has 12 assists and Shea Theodore has 35 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 84.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up 15 goals on 136 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 11 goals on 196 shots.
The Avalanche are 17-8 in their last 25 road games and 5-0 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Golden Knights are 23-7 in their last 30 home games and 36-16 in their last 52 overall. The over is 6-2 in Golden Knights last 8 home games. The underdog is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Colorado Avalanche and cheap prices are intriguing considering they're one of the more talented teams in the league and a legit cup contender. However, the Vegas Golden Knights have been nothing but money this season and just shutout the Avs a couple of days ago. In what should be another tight contest, I'm not betting against the Golden Knights at home with the cheap price. If we were getting some plus money with the Avalanche, I may be leaning the other direction, but at this price, it's Vegas all the way.
