Ricky's 8* play on Colorado.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Avalanche are 6-1 in their last seven after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game.
- The Avs Nathan McKinnon scored 93 points, 5th most in the NHL this season.
- The home team is 35-16 in the last 51 meetings.
The verdict: The Avs should be the hungrier team.
