The final result What to bet on this game.

Side bet on the full game


This is going to be interesting because the Avalanche is on a roll, which is one of the main reasons the team pushed to a playoff spot. On the other hand, Winnipeg has had some recent difficulties and is now in a three-team fight to win the division title in the Central Division or at least the home ice advantage in the first leg. of the first round. The Jets need to get back on track if they hope to be successful, but it's hard to support them against a Colorado team with a point in nine straight games. Look for the Avalanche, playing at home, to win the victory and win its playoff spot.

Prediction: Colorado Avalanche -110

Total choice for the full game


Colorado is on fire recently and the return of Landeskog in training has only strengthened his offensive attack. The Avalanche makes life difficult for opposing teams and if they end up staying where they are, you have to think that they can cause problems in Calgary. Winnipeg must find a way to straighten the boat, as four defeats in five games do not inspire this end of the season. The Jets have a lower attack on the road (2.9 goals per game) than home (3.68) this season, so home ice may be important. Can they find a way to get the win here to give themselves a solid chance to win the division crown?

The advantage is 4-1 in the last five games of the Jets, 4-1 in their last five games against Central Division, 7-2-2 in their last 11 games as an underdog and 6-2-2 in their Last 10 an outsider of the road. Colorado has seen the first leg 11-2 in their last 13 games as a favorite of -110-150 and 5-1 in their last 6 games as home favorite from -110-150. The last five games have been a 4-1 draw: look for one, as Colorado continues to click and Winnipeg goaltenders drop them again.

Prediction: More than 6
