Monday's NHL Prediction
Colorado has gotten off to a good start to the 2010-11 NHL Season as the Avalanche leads the Northwest Division, but the Avs hit the road Monday night when they take on the New York Rangers.
The Avalanche are 3-2-0 on the season with 16 goals scored and 18 goals allowed while the Rangers are 1-1-1 with 13 goals scored and allowed.
The Avalanche have went 6-3-1 in their last 10 games against the Rangers in New York but have lost the last two overall meetings with New York.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for Monday’s game.
Colorado Avalanche at New York Rangers, 7PM ET
Trends favor New York as they are 7-3 in their last 10 games as a favorite of -110 to -150 and 5-1 in their last 6 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less the game prior.
The Avalanche are 1-6 in their last 7 games when playing on 1 day of rest and 1-6 in their last 7 games following a loss of 3 or more goals.
With New York at home, I like the Rangers because they aren’t heavily favored and they are the fresher team.
