Avalanche @ Golden Knights – Game 4 – Avalanche Money Line (1.95 | -105)
The Avalanche were heavily outplayed by the Golden Knights in Game 3 despite the low-scoring affair. Look for Colorado to bounce back in a big way tonight. Sportsbooks are also giving us underdog value on the Avs for the first time this postseason which makes this play too good to pass on.
Colorado leads all playoff teams in expected goals for per game (3.86) and are fuelled by a powerplay that’s clicking at 44.0%, good for 1st. The reason for the Avalanche’s offensive success starts (and most likely ends) with Nathan MacKinnon. MacKinnon leads playoff scoring with 8 goals and 5.65 expected goals for. He’s undeniably the heartbeat for the Avs as he paces his team in shots on net (31), slot shots (18), cycle chances (18) , forecheck chances (4), and rebound chances (3) in the playoffs.
Don’t shy away from taking the value on the NHL’s most dominant team this postseason, led by the clear-cut Conn Smythe Trophy frontrunner.
