Avalanche at Canucks picks and predictions


Avalanche 3, Canucks 1



Colorado (-155) will win, but there is no need to pay so much juice on the moneyline when the Avalanche should win by multiple goals. Bet the puck line or total instead.

Puck line/Against the spread

BET AVALANCHE -1.5 (+135).

The Avalanche should be extra motivated to get revenge since Vancouver defeated Colorado by multiple goals at Rogers Arena just over 2 weeks ago. The defending Stanley Cup champions have outscored opponents 17-4 over the last 3 contests and should cover the puck line for the 4th straight game Friday.


BET UNDER 6.5 (+115).

Despite averaging 5.67 goals over its last 3 games, Colorado is only allowing an average of 1.33 goals over that span. The Under is 4-0-1 in Colorado’s last 5 games vs. Western Conference teams and should hit again Friday in Vancouver.
