Well the Stanley Cup Playoffs have been an up and down ride. Particularly in the Colorado/Dallas series. The Stars lead 3-1 but if you went by numbers alone you’d think the Avalanche would be ahead. Let’s dive in.
In Colorado’s 3 losses they had a CF% advantage in all three games. Including a CF% of 60.7 according to hockey-reference.com. So it’s not as if the Avalanche are being dominated like the score sheet suggest. In fact, both goalies on each team are getting hammered.
Every game has gone over this series and last game I took the under thinking they might actually play defense and stop the puck. Doh!
So today’s free pick is going to be the OVER (-115) which is 6. On a $20 bet you’d net +$37.40.
