Bet on Scoring When Colorado Visits Edmonton

When Colorado visits Edmonton, we will see a lot of goals. It’s no wonder the total of 6½ is heavily juiced and could hit seven unless we see significant contrarian action. But we won’t since these Stanley Cup contenders are too prolific and combine for nearly 7.4 goals per game. So instead of an NHL pick against the spread (ATS), we will tout the total to go over.

The total is set at 6½ goals at a whopping -135 line. This is modest considering the firepower both Colorado and Edmonton possess.

Avalanche vs Oilers Over/Under Pick: Over 6½ (-135)

It’s surprising not to see the total between Colorado and Edmonton at seven goals. These are two of the NHL’s most potent offenses and each has frequently scored 5+ goals. Still, Edmonton has played stringent defense lately, which is why 14 of its last 20 conference games have trended ‘under’.

But Colorado is a different animal. The 2022 Stanley Cup champions average nearly 3.3 goals on the road, which is the tenth-best mark among visitors. And on the flip side, Edmonton scores four goals per home game. Either way, the ‘over’ seems like an easy hockey bet for Mar. 16.

Colorado has been on fire and has scored 4+ goals in six of its last eight games led by the duo of Nathan Mackinnon and Mikko Rantanen. We don’t see it slowing down against Edmonton, which has not faced an elite team since Boston – a 6-5 loss was the result.

Avalanche vs Oilers Moneyline Pick: Colorado (+110)

We’ll gladly make Colorado our bet online given its underdog line. The Avalance are 11-9 (11-6-3) in road games against conference opponents. But it also has a more consistent record against other top-10 teams, unlike Edmonton. As such, the underdogs are the right pick here.

Avalanche vs Oilers Player Prop Pick: Mikko Rantanen – Over 1 Point (-286)

All the hype is on MacKinnon as he is favored by sportsbooks to win the Hart Trophy award. But he won’t do it without his running mate, Rantanen. He has consistently produced for Colorado and is an easy pick to score points in this game.
