Colorado has had another solid regular season. Even the occasional loss of their leaders hasn't affected the quality of Avalanche's performance. In their last 19 games, Jared Bednar's team has lost only twice, and both times they lost on the road to Nashville (2:5 in regulation time and 4:5 in overtime). The remaining 17 games were only victories. Obviously, the Denver team is in great form right now, which allows them to lead the Western Conference standings, already six points ahead of their nearest pursuer.
Boston can't boast their usual stability in the regular season, but they gradually managed to return to the playoff zone. So, they don't have any global problems. The Bears are in top form right now, which is evident from their recent results. In their previous 13 games, Bruce Cassidy's side had ten wins and three losses, their best stretch of the season. Things could have been even better, but the Black and Yellow finished their last home series poorly, losing unexpectedly to Anaheim (3:5). Nevertheless, Boston currently sits in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings, and there is no danger of them making the playoffs.
Expert Betting Tips
The Avalanche have won their last seven games in a row, while the Bears have the same seven wins in ten meetings, which is not bad either. The only difference is that the Denver team has shown such a quality game all season long, while the Black and Yellow have been notably worse from a distance. The statistics for their head-to-head encounters also favour the home team, as they won their last three home games in a row by a combined score of 16:8. As a result, we suggest betting on a Colorado win for 1.80.
Surprisingly, Colorado and Boston's recent head-to-head encounters in Denver have all been prolific in terms of results, but the battles in Massachusetts aren't known for high goalscoring activity. Fortunately, the upcoming clash will occur at Ball Arena, so we have every reason to expect a spectacular battle with plenty of goals. In the last three such meetings, we've seen 26 goals against (8.67 average per game), which is a very respectable number by NHL standards. Therefore, we suggest betting on a total over 6.5 for 1.95.
Andre Burakovsky moved from Washington to Colorado two and a half years ago. He immediately revealed himself as a player capable of holding off opposing leaders and as a goalscorer. This regular season will be no exception as the Swedish forward has already scored 32 points (14 goals + 18 assists) in 38 games. The 26-year-old has every chance to set a personal best record with just 13 points left in the schedule. In such a situation, we suggest betting on Andre Burakovsky's total over 0.5 for 3.74.
