The Red Wings are favored in NHL betting at the Sbg sportsbook in this game that can be seen on Versus.
It is a tough spot for Colorado since they had to play last night in Philadelphia while the Red Wings were off. It is never easy for a team to play on back-to-back nights, especially on the road against a rested opponent. Playing against the Flyers can wear a team out so Colorado could be a little weary on Tuesday night.
Wednesday Betting Stats – The Avalanche are 10-4 in their last 14 vs. the Central Division. Remember what we said earlier about this being a back-to-back for Colorado? They are 6-20 in their last 26 games in that situation.
The Avalanche is 2-7 in their last 9 road games. Detroit is 5-1 in their last 6 vs. the Northwest Division. They are 3-7 in their last 10 games playing on 2 days of rest so perhaps too much rest is not a good thing. Detroit is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings at home vs. Colorado. The Red Wings have done well in this series of late and look like a solid play on Tuesday.
Total Pucks – The total trends point to a high scoring game on Tuesday. The Over is 4-0 in Colorado’s last 4 vs. the Central. The Over is 9-2 in Colorado’s last 11 road games. The Over is 9-3 in the Red Wings last 12 home games. The Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between the two teams in Detroit.
The Pick – Colorado is an interesting team that can be worth a wager at times in NHL betting but this is not a good spot for them. They are playing with no rest and despite the stats it is not easy playing in Detroit without any rest. The Red Wings have played very well to start the season with two straight wins and they are solid favorites in NHL betting online for this Tuesday game. Lay the money with Detroit and look for the Red Wings to start the season at 3-0.
