Colorado Avalanche vs Washington Capitals prediction
Pretty high line which is based on all those offensive power on both sides of course and on many overs between these two in the past.
I still think some value with the under and here is why.
The Avs are playing great hockey right now. They won 8 of their past 10 games and the key to this has been in fact their 'D. They allowed just 2.0 goals per game during this span.
In fact, since NewYear they have a 1.03 xGA at home ( 6th best ).
-Under is 4-0 in Avalanche last 4 overall.
Grubauer is confirmed in net and he is 4-1 in February with a 1.61 GAA / 0.94 SV%. Against the Caps he posted this season a 3.04 GAA.
We all know the offensive power of the Caps. But on the road they play solid on the defensive side with a 562 SCA ( 6th ), 4.89 xGA ( 6th ).
Unifinished business for Holtby ( confirmed ) because he got pulled of the game earlier this season against the Avs with a 22.78 GAA (!).
Hence backing the under.
