Colorado Avalanche vs Detroit Red Wings 01/20/2020 – The Colorado Avalanche served a huge statement last timeout by putting up an impressive performance against top Western Conference team and defending Stanley Cup Champions St. Louis Blues last Saturday, 5-3. A relatively lighter competition will come their way as last-placed Detroit Red Wings visit the Pepsi Center on Monday. The NHL Vegas Odds are obviously tagging the Avalanche as heavy favorites at home in this game. After all, the Red Wings have only won four times in 23 tries on the road.

Colorado Avalanche vs Detroit Red Wings 01/20/2020 Betting Odds:
The Colorado Avalanche will open the gates of Pepsi Center in high spirits as they are coming off a confidence-boosting victory over the Blues. Cale Makar asserted his mastery by setting a club record for goals by a first-year defenseman with 11 in Saturday’s win against St. Louis. He has scored goals in back-to-back outings and has accounted for a total of six points over his last eight games this month.
Players to watch: Nathan MacKinnon (GP 48, G 28, A 42, PTS 70), Cale Makar (GP 40, G 11, A 24, PTS 35), Mikko Rantanen (GP 32, G 15, A 17, PTS 32).
Detroit Red Wings
It has been a forgettable season for the Red Wings. They hold the league-worst in wins and collected the least total points to date, just to name a few. Proving that they could not simply get over the hump, the Red Wings are currently in the midst of a four-game losing skid – a stretch that has become a normal occurrence for Detroit. Their last setback came at the hands of the Florida Panthers where they lost 1-4 at home on Saturday.
Players to watch: Tyler Bertuzzi (GP 49, G 16, A 18, PTS 34), Dylan Larkin (GP 49, G 12, A 20, PTS 32), Filip Hronek (GP 47, G 9, A 17, PTS 26).
Colorado Avalanche vs Detroit Red Wings Betting Predictions

Avalanche vs Red Wings Betting Picks
The Avalanche will not need much effort to dispose of the reeling Red Wings. Back the home team to win this game convincingly as Detroit will struggle to keep up with the pace that Colorado is expected to launch on ice.
Score Prediction: Avalanche 5, Red Wings 2.
