Colorado vs Calgary (By: FairPlayBet)
I was last night on Dallas Stars against Calgary Flames (finished 2:0). I am against Calgary also this time when they will visit Colorado Avalanche.
Fact this is second night of the back to back for Calgary is already one reason for this bet (Colorado on the other side the last time played two days ago and was better from Vancouver, 3:1 plus it was here at home so no traveling for Colorado).
So obviously better spot for the home team.
Colorado is 33-29 overall and very nice 21-9 at home.
Calgary is 32-32 overall and what's interesting is the fact this team play better on the road, 18-14.
But I mentioned their good road record last night, and had no problems to go with Dallas, I have no problems either today in picking Colorado.
The visiting team today will have weak goaltender in face of David Rittich. He wasn't on the ice last night in Dallas and Calgary still lost. Now with Rittich, this could be even easier loss for them. Rittich was on goal in game in Vegas and allowed even seven goals. Overall in the season he is 3.03 GAA and 0.902 save %.
To be honest, the host also won't be in great matcup with Semyon Varlamov on the goal. But his overall numbers in the season are better than Rittich's. Namely, Varlamov is 2.88 GAA and with 0.912 save %.
BTW, this is also the revenge spot for Colorado who suffered road defeat from Calgary week ago 5:1
