Both teams are in the hunt in the Northwest Division this season and NHL betting on this one should be good. Hockey bet history shows that the Avalanche has won 7 of the last 10 games against Edmonton. Colorado has started slowly this season and will be an underdog on the NHL betting line in this game. The Avs have gotten poor goaltending for the most part and their offense has been inconsistent. The Oilers haven’t exactly lit up the scoreboard either and their goaltending has been a rotation this season.
This has been a home dominated series in agreement to the hockey bet numbers. Edmonton has won three of the last five games at home against the Av’s while losing each of the last five on the road according to hockey bet statistics. Earlier this season that trend held true as Colorado won 4-1 at home while Edmonton won 3-2 at home according to hockey bet results. Both games stayed under the hockey bet total of 5.5. Previously, six of the last eight games between the two teams had gone over the hockey bet number. At Edmonton, three of the last five have stayed under the NHL betting total.
Hockey bet background info show that the Oilers are relying upon Ales Hemsky to score goals and Dustin Penner on defense. Lately it has been Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers in goal and his numbers have been excellent according to hockey bet stats. Edmonton has some solid young talent that can impact the NHL betting line on a regular basis.
Paul Stastny leads a Colorado offense that so far this season has been up and down. The Av’s are in the bottom third of the NHL in offense according to hockey bet stats. They are even worse on defense, ranking near the bottom of the league according to hockey bet numbers. Normally Colorado would be looking to Joe Sakic but his best days are behind him. It looks to be a transition time for Colorado and so far their young talent does not look up to the task.
