Chicago Blackhawks vs Colorado Avalanche prediction

The Chicago Blackhawks continue to pile up the losses, the offense isn't producing, and they're 4-24-1 on the road this season. It's hard to make a case for the Chicago Blackhawks these days, especially on the road against one of the better teams in the league. The Colorado Avalanche have been hit or miss at times lately, but they're 23-6-0 at home this season. The Avs also beat the Blackhawks 5-0 less than a week ago. The Avalanche have won 8 of their last 10 games against the Blackhawks overall. There's really only one way to go in this contest. Give me the Avs and the PL for max betting value, as the regular line is absolutely ridiculous.
