Avalanche Inside Top 10 in Offense And Defense
Colorado was sluggish to start the season but that was likely a bit of a Stanley Cup hangover. More recently, they’ve been playing like the team we’ve known over the last five years.
When it comes to league statistics, the AVs rank in the top 10 in both offense and defense. No matter where you look on this roster, there’s offensive production. Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon, and Cale Makar all have over 20 points right now. Rantanen leads the way with 29 currently.
On the back end, they barely let anything slip through the cracks. Alexandar Georgiev is 10-2-1 as the starting goaltender with a 2.29 GAA and a .933 save percentage. He’s been an upgrade over last year’s starter Darcy Kuemper.
Pavel Francouz, their backup, started the year with a 0-4-0 record but has since won back-to-back starts while improving to a 2.70 GAA and a .914 save percentage.
Everything is clicking for this squad, which is why they’re a good option for your NHL picks.

Jets Coming Off Rout
Winnipeg will certainly have some wind at its back as it takes on the defending champions. The Jets were able to dominate the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, winning 7-2 while never trailing.
There are some injury and player updates to be wary of, though. Morgan Barron is activated off injured reserve, David Gustafsson didn’t play a few nights ago with an undisclosed injury and the veteran Sam Gagner was made a healthy scratch after some unproductive outings.
The Jets boast Connor Hellebuyck in the net and he’s been stellar. He’s 10-5-1 with a 2.43 GAA and a .925 save percentage. He’ll have to be on the top of his game to outlast Georgiev on the other end if both of these guys are given the starting nod.

This is going to be a tight battle as we have hot teams. The Avs are probably the better squad but they’re on the road. Winnipeg is 7-2-0 at home.
What might be the best play here is the under. With two hot goalies in Georgiev and Hellebuyck, we should see a tight, low-scoring affair. Take the under in the sportsbook.
