Detroit Red Wings Fantasy Spin

Jimmy Howard allowed three goals on 37 shots in Saturday's 4-1 setback against the Florida Panthers. Howard is now in the midst of a 14-game winless stretch, and he slips to 2-17-2 after this one. Truth be told, he wasn't that bad in back-to-back games Friday and Saturday against two high-octane offenses from the Penguins and Panthers, and the offense only grabbed one goal of support for him. If anyone can use the All-Star break to recharge and refocus, it's Howard.

Colorado Avalanche Fantasy Spin

Philipp Grubauer stopped 21 of 24 shots in a 5-3 win against St. Louis on Saturday. Grubauer allowed a goal in each of the three periods. He's now surrendered at least three goals in three of his last four starts, but he has a 2-1-1 record over that span.

Betting Trends


The Red Wings are winless in their last four games versus the Avalanche, but are 22-10 in their last 32 trips to Denver. The road team is also 9-4 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams.


The favorite is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams. This trend applies to the Avalanche.

Our Prediction

The Avalanche have been cashing over tickets of late, going 9-4 over the total in their last 13 games and 6-2 in their last eight home games. The over is also 6-2 in the Avalanche’s last eight games as a home favorite, is 8-3 in their last 11 games as a favorite either at home or on the road, and has hit in five of their last seven games when playing on one day of rest. On the other side, the over is 7-3 in the Red Wings’ last 10 games versus Central Division foes and is 4-1 in their last five games following a home loss of three or more goals.

Monday NHL Prediction: Red Wings/Avalanche OVER 6.5
