Online NHL Betting Odds:
In Games 3 & 4, the Avalanche was only able to pick up one win. This was quite unfortunate for Colorado, since the home ice advantage was supposed to bring them back into the mix of things. Instead, the club is now staring down the barrel of postseason elimination. Game 4’s results were 3-2 in Nashville’s favor, which suggests that Colorado was in the mix of things. However, with things now heading back to Tennessee, it’s hard to imagine Colorado getting the job done on the road. And even if they did, they’ll still find themselves in a pretty big hole.
Players to Watch: Gabriel Landeskog (3 G, 3 A, 6 PTS), Nathan MacKinnon (3 G, 2 A, 5 PTS), and Matt Nieto (0 G, 3 A, 3 PTS).
The Preds have to be feeling pretty good about their chances at home this evening. After all, the Preds delivered a decisive 5-2 finish at home in Game 1. Granted, the Avalanche fared a bit better in Game 2, as the turnout to that match was 5-4. But the overall point is that Colorado was unable to defeat Nashville in Nashville. Clearly, tonight’s online NHL betting odds don’t think the Avalanche stand a chance of winning. Granted, the 1 ½ point spread line make it clear the odds think it’ll be a close game. But in the end, bookmakers are certain it’ll be the Preds walking off the ice victoriously.
Players to Watch: Austin Watson (3 G, 2 A, 5 PTS), Ryan Johansen (2 G, 3 A, 5 PTS), and Filip Forsberg (3 G, 2, 5 PTS).
