Online Hockey Betting Odds:
The Avalanche will be playing on the road tonight for a chance to stay alive in the Stanley Cup race. Having already beaten San Jose on the road, online hockey betting fans are aware that Colorado is more than capable of pulling off this feat tonight. However, the odds are still siding with San Jose this evening. Albeit, the favoritism is ever so slight and the 1 ½ spread prediction informs us that the odds-makers are expecting a close matchup tonight. And since Colorado is 3-7 in their last 10 matches against the Sharks, it makes perfect sense for the bookies to come out in favor of San Jose. Additionally, San Jose is 18-2 in their last 10 games against Colorado at home. With this in mind, it’s abundantly clear that history is not on the Avalanche’s side tonight.
Players to Watch: Nathan MacKinnon (6 G, 7 A, 13 PTS.), Mikko Rantanen (5 G, 8 A, 13 PTS.), and Tyson Barrie (1 G, 7 A, 8 PTS.).
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks have a lot of things on their side this evening. All in all, this puts more pressure on their shoulders than Colorado’s. Without question, the Avalanche have been extremely impressive in their postseason run. Despite entering on a Wild Card berth, they were able to eliminated top-seeded Calgary in the opening. That was undoubtedly one of the bigger postseason upsets we’ve seen in a while. Furthermore, they’ve been able to stretch this series against San Jose to a full 7-games. But will they be able to deliver some magic once again?
Players to Watch: Logan Couture (9 G, 5 A, 14 PTS.), Brent Burns (5 G, 7 A, 12 PTS.), and Erik Karlsson (0 G, 12 A, 12 PTS.).
