Avalanche vs. Canucks Pick
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Canucks are a -120 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Avalanche are a +100 underdog, while the over-under is set at 6 goals. The ine opened as a pick'em before it moved in favor of the home team.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 53 percent of public bets have come in on the Canucks. Online wager info also shows that 62 percent of bets are siding with the under.
Vancouver has won four consecutive games in the series and is 7-3 over the last 10 meetings. The over has gone 4-3-3. In the lone meeting this season, Vancouver won 4-3 in overtime on its home ice.
Colorado comes in on a two-game llosing skid as it fell 6-1 at the Jets and 4-2 at home to the Oilers. The Avs are 4-6 over their last 10 games and the over is 5-4-1. Vancouver snapped a two-game losing skid last game with a 6-1 home victory over the Bruins. Vancouver is 4-6 over its last 10 games, while the over is 7-3.
The Avalanche are only 3-12 in their last 15 games in Vancouver and 8-26 in the last 34 meetings overall. I'm going to buy into that trend, especially with the Canucks looking so good in their last home game. Bet on the slightly favored hosts here.
