The Colorado Avalanche, who were favorites to win the Stanley Cup last season, are starting to turn things around after a slow start to the season. They have now won two games in a row before starting the matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight.
The Blue Jackets enter the game with a 5-3 record and celebrate an overtime win against the New Jersey Devils on October 31st.
Despite the slow start, the Avalanche betting favorites stay at WynnBET to win the Stanley Cup at +550 (wager $ 100 to win $ 550).
Here’s a look at the odds for tonight’s inter-conference game courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.
The Avs are starting to turn their season around and the Blue Jackets should be pleased that they currently hold a winning record. Columbus is in 28th place in CORSI%, 27th in the chances of hitting high danger and 24th in the chances of hitting against high dangers.
We’re getting added value to Colorado in this game as backup goalkeeper Jonas Johansson is starting the game. Johansson allowed three goals in his only start to the season when he lost to the Florida Panthers, but I expect him to catch up against a boring Blue Jackets offensive.
The Avalanche are ready to win tonight at home against a Columbus team on the verge of regression.
