The Canucks have been a pleasant surprise in terms of NHL betting odds this season while the Avalanche has been a bit of a disappointment.
NHL odds information shows that this is the first game of a three-game home stand for Colorado. It is the fifth game of a seven-game road trip for the Canucks. Even though the Canucks are the better team so far this season, they have had very little success recently against Colorado. The Canucks have lost 8 of the last 10 against Colorado according to NHL odds stats. That includes a 2-1 loss at home last month according to NHL odds results. The Canucks have lost three of the last four games in Colorado according to NHL odds statistics. Since these teams are rivals in the Northwest Division they play quite a few times each season. Last year they met eight times and Colorado won six of the eight games according to NHL betting odds statistics.
The Canucks have been very solid defensively this season, mainly thanks to goaltender Roberto Luongo. He recently was injured, however, which has hurt their overall numbers. Vancouver has also been solid offensively, ranking in the Top 10 according to NHL betting odds stats. The Canucks have been led by the Sedin twins this season. On the other hand, Colorado has had virtually no offense this season, ranking near the bottom of the league according to NHL odds stats and their defense has not been much better. Paul Stastny leads the team in scoring but that is not saying much considering his points total ranks well down the list in the league according to NHL odds numbers.
Gamblers looking at NHL odds in terms of the total also have some interesting stats to look at. The under has cashed 6 of the last 10 times in this series according to NHL odds statistics. At Colorado, the over/under is 2-2 according to NHL odds numbers.
