The over is 37-17-2 in Canucks last 56 overall. The under is 5-0 in Avalanche last 5 overall. The Canucks are 30-14 in the last 44 meetings. The under is 5-1-2 in the last 8 meetings in Colorado.

The Vancouver Canucks have been absolutely terrible on the road this season, and this isn’t a spot where things turn around. The Colorado Avalanche have been ridiculously good on their home ice dating back to last season, and they’re starting to play at the level they were at last year overall. Only one direction for me to go here, and that’s to side with the Avs and the PL for max betting value.

Randy Chambers’s Free Pick:

Colorado Avalanche -1.5
