Those that bet on hockey have been pleasantly surprised by Colorado this season.
Hockey betting has seen Colorado start the year with one of the best records in the league and most of those games were played on the road. Colorado now gets to play some home games where they have been very tough in hockey betting. They have won three of the last five home games against Edmonton in this hockey betting series but they have lost the previous two games. Last year they lost at home 8-1 and 3-2 in hockey betting. This looks like a different Colorado team than last year though. They have already beaten Edmonton 3-0 on the road this season in hockey betting. A similar results could be in store in this matchup on Sunday.
If you bet on hockey totals you may want to take a look at this one. Five of the last six games between the two teams have gone under the hockey betting total including the game earlier this season which was a 3-0 Colorado road win.
The Avalanche has been exceptional on defense this hockey betting season. They have been led by goaltender Craig Anderson who has been leading the league in wins and right near the top in goals against average. The Avs have also been scoring goals led by Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk. Not much has gone wrong this season for Colorado and that is why they have been one of the best hockey betting teams.
Edmonton has struggled on the road this season in hockey betting. They could have trouble in this game as well and those that bet on hockey may not want to take the Oilers in this game. Edmonton has been led this season by Dustin Penner on offense. Goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin has been solid in goal but overall the Oilers are still not playing strong enough in front of him. So far this hockey betting season the Oilers have been up and down and they are definitely better at home than on the road and that is something that those that bet on hockey will want to know.
