Bet Tonight's Oilers vs. Avalanche Game

Colorado enters play tonight with a 6-4-0 record over its last 10 games while the over is 5-4-1 during that same 10-game span. As for Edmonton, the Oilers are also 6-4-0 over their last 10 contests while the under was a profitable 2-7-1 during that stretch of games.

The Aves have already lost Matt Duchene to a knee injury and now Nathan MacKinnon also hurt his left knee in the third period of Friday's 4-3 shootout win in Calgary. MacKinnon was to be re-evaluated yesterday but Colorado recalled Mikko Rantanen from San Antonio, so the team is clearly preparing as though MacKinnon will not play tonight.
