Colorado vs Vegas (By: FairPlayBet)
Colorado Avalanche will host Vegas Golden Knights in this early game on today's NHL schedule.
It's a clash between two Western Conference rivals. Colorado is there in tough race for a playoffs spot. Currently they are on 8th position with 88 pts, so far from safe.
On the other side Vegas pretty much entire season was among teams with best records in entire NHL. For a while they were a leader on the west coast while now they are tied as second best with 100 pts won.
To be honest here, I can make a case for betting on any of these two sides. I mean Colorado at home ice, plus the game is more important for them. Plus they are coming from a huge loss, here at home they suffered big defeat last time from LA Kings, 1:7. And now usually you will see to team bounce back in the first next game after such weak performance. So no wonder if Colorado scores 4+ today
But I have reason to believe also in Vegas. This team also coming from a loss and they are very dangerous team on such spot, in first game after loss. I would need double check about that but I think Vegas is the team with best record on games after defeat.
So, at the end I opted here for totals, I mean over the totals. IMO we will see good offenses today. Plus it us early game and in such case, more likely we have high than low score.
Vegas goalie not confirmed while Varlamov for Colorado. He was not bad lately but in last start allowed five early goals and was pulled.
