Devils vs. Avalanche Betting Prediction
Though the Devils have played well lately, their performance against the Avalanche has been poor in the past. They have only two wings in Colorado in the last 15 games and lost in 15 of the previous 21 meetings. Plus, they have performed average on the road, winning two in their past four games, having scored 12 and conceded 11 in return.
On the other hand, the Avalanche have won three out of their last four home games with a combined score of 17-9. The Avalanche are 7-2 in their past nine games while playing on a day’s rest but have lost in five of seven meetings against a team with over 0.600 winning percentage.
The game is likely to stay close, but the Avalanche have come out strong lately, especially at home, we should expect them to win this game.
