Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins will go head to head in Presidents Day afternoon action.
Avalanche are in first place in the NHL, and 12 points ahead of the next best team at the Western Conference. They are on a two-match winning streak in today’s match.
The Bruins are currently sitting in the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 60 points, and although they are likely to be safe, they are unable to continue a heavy losing streak. Red Wings are 8 points behind them on the Atlantic rankings.
The Avs won the first meeting between these two teams, beating the Bruins 4-3 in extra time in Colorado.
Let’s take a look at Odds for today’s match via WynnBET Sportsbook.
I don’t quite sell Avalanche as well as their records show, and as a result, I find them overvalued in the betting market. In their last 25 matches, Avs are 12th in terms of chance to score high and 25th in terms of chance to score high in the head-to-head. Some great plays by their goalkeepers have saved them more than once.
I expect a pullback from Colorado, so I’m going to beat the Bruins as a sizable underdog. Boston continues to be one of the top defensive teams in the league, limiting the teams to 10.23 dangerous scoring opportunities per game, which is the fourth-best score in the NHL.
If you’re looking for a weaker team to return to on Monday, you won’t find one that shows as much value as the Bruins at +140.
Pick: Bruins +140
