Colorado Avalanche Betting Analysis

Through January 13th, the Colorado Avalanche won as many games as they lost, going 20-17-3, which was 20th in the NHL. Some of that could’ve been considered a Stanley Cup hangover, but mostly it was due to a slew of injuries, not the least of which has seen captain Gabriel Landeskog miss the whole season (knee).

However, since January 14th, they’ve been on fire, going 14-3-2, second best in the league in that span.

Before a 7-5 stumble to the Devils Wednesday, the Avs resembled their defending Cup champion ways, picking up points in eight straight (7-0-1).

The Avs had surrendered two or fewer goals in five of six before the random explosion of goals versus New Jersey. They’ve also won five of their last six against a team with a winning record.

Dallas Stars Betting Analysis

Despite leading the West, the Dallas Stars were on a rocky road, dropping five straight. Since then, they’ve righted the ship with a 3-0-1 record in the last four. They are, however, struggling at home, losers of five of six.

For the campaign, they’re slightly above average in goal scoring (14th in the NHL, 8th on the PP), but are elite defending their own net, ranking third in both goals allowed/game and the penalty kill.

The under is 5-1-1 in the last seven Stars’ games playing on one day of rest. They’re up against a squad that has seen the under go 10-1-2 in the last 13 against the Central.
