Canucks vs Avalanche Over/Under Pick: Over 6½ Goals (-120)

The Canucks and Avalanche combined for seven goals in their first meeting, and the two are a strong NHL pick to go over the total once more.

Vancouver and Colorado are two of the top-scoring offenses in the NHL, ranking second and third, respectively, averaging 3.72 goals and 3.70 goals a game each. That production hasn’t slowed down for the Canucks, averaging four goals a game in its last five, including a seven-goal performance in its last outing against the Minnesota Wild.

Although Colorado hasn’t had quite the same kind of success, averaging three goals in its last five, it should be able to pick things up here. The Canucks are on the second end of a back-to-back and are coming off a game in which they gave up 10 goals to Minnesota. Though it’s unlikely Vancouver will have that kind of performance again, it has allowed 3.8 goals a game in its last five.

 

Canucks vs Avalanche Player Prop Pick: Nathan MacKinnon Over 1½ Points (-110)

Nathan MacKinnon leads Colorado in production, scoring 33 goals and recording 91 points. He has stepped up recently, recording two points in each of his last three games.

MacKinnon has been even better at home, earning 55 points in 26 games so far this season, and already had one point against Vancouver this year. MacKinnon will be involved in this game’s action, making him a great player prop bet for his over/under point total.
