Philadelphia Flyers vs Colorado Avalanche 02/01/2020 Predictions, Picks and NHL Betting Odds

Posted by: Hilbert Mayer

Philadelphia Flyers vs Colorado Avalanche 02/01/2020 – The Colorado Avalanche have performed fairly well before going into the All-Star break as they logged in a 3-0-2 record in their last five games, all of which were played at home. With 11 days of rest, the Avalanche will now begin a five-game road trip that starts Saturday when they visit Philadelphia to play the Flyers. Gabriel Landeskog made a good account of himself prior to the break as he put up four points behind three goals and an assist during the last home stretch. The latest NHL odds are putting an utter balance between the two teams with the offered match-winner prices barely favoring the visitors.

Philadelphia Flyers

Jakub Varacek stayed in the zone even after the break, and it looks like he is nowhere near slowing down. The 30-year-old steady skater collected three goals and two assists over his last six games to bring his total points total to 39 in the season. The Flyers got tripped by the Pittsburgh Penguins in OT, 4-3, on Friday. Despite this, Philadelphia Flyers found solace from Tyler Pitlick who finished with his first multi-point performance of the season after tallying a goal and an assist in the loss. 

Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 48, G 17, A 26, PTS 43), Sean Couturier (GP 51, G 13, A 30, PTS 43), Jakub Voracek (GP 51, G 11, A 28, PTS 39).

 

Colorado Avalanche

Nathan MacKinnon is expecting to draw significant attention from the opposition as he returns on the ice this Saturday. That is not surprising, to say the least, as the All-Star has been doing it on both ends, chalking up 30 goals and 42 assists for a team-high 72 points. MacKinnon loves tormenting the Flyers. Taking a look back at their last meeting in December, the 24-year-old took credit in one of Mikko Rantanen’s two goals that eventually resulted in a 3-1 victory for Colorado.

Players to watch: Nathan MacKinnon (GP 49, G 30, A 42, PTS 72), Cale Makar (GP 41, G 11, A 26, PTS 37), Mikko Rantanen (GP 33, G 15, A 19, PTS 39).

How about exposing the home team with a masterful scoring spree? That’s music to the ears of the Colorado Avalanche. Spot the value on the W/L laid odds as this clash will not showcase a nail biter like what the sportsbooks foresee. Expect a lopsided win for the road team who is certainly itching to get back on the ice.
