Colorado are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.

Colorado are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Boston.

Colorado are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Colorado are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against Boston.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Boston's last 6 games.

Boston are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Boston's last 7 games against Colorado.

Boston are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Avalanche have been playing much better lately and have won 6 of their last 7 games scoring an average of 4.5 goals per game on that strecht but already lost against the Bruins earlier this season at home. The Bruins are having a hell of a season and are the only team undefeated at home with a 12-0 in Boston. The Avalanche will be playing on back to back games while the Bruins are well rested and it's really hard to go against them at home. Take the Bruins.
