Earning 4.2 units for moneyline bettors, Colorado is 8-6 straight up (SU) overall thus far. That winning percentage, the second-best in the Central Division so far this season, is a complete turnaround from what the team managed during the 2016-17 season (22-60). Through 14 regular season contests, nine of its games have gone over the total, while five have gone under and none have pushed. The team’s 5-1 SU at home this season.

As a collective unit, the Avalanche have been penalized 4.6 times per game this season, a number that is up a bit from last year’s 4.0 penalties per game they gave up.

Sporting a .911 save percentage and 31.9 saves per game, Semyon Varlamov (6-3) has been the best goalkeeper for Colorado this season. If Colorado chooses to give him a breather, however, the team may go with Jonathan Bernier (2-3-3 record, .884 save percentage, 3.63 goals against average).

Tyson Barrie and Nathan MacKinnon will both look to continue their strong seasons for the Avalanche. Barrie (14 points) has produced two goals and 12 assists and has recorded two or more points on two different occasions this year. MacKinnon has four goals and 10 assists to his credit and has recorded at least one point in seven contests.
