The Colorado Avalanche travel to St. Paul, Minnesota to take on the Wild in what should be a goal fest on Monday evening.
The Avs are 1-1 to start the season, losing their last game at Calgary 5-3.
The Wild come in winless so far at 0-2, looking to shake off the offseason rust and get back to their winning ways.
What are the best bets for this matchup?
AVAILABLE AT FANDUEL
- AVALANCHE -1.5 (+225)
- WILD +1.5 (-290)
- AVALANCHE (-115)
- WILD (-104)
- OVER 6.5 (-120)
- UNDER 6.5 (-102)
The Wild have allowed 7 goals in each of their first 2 games to start the season and now they welcome the offensive juggernaut that is the Avalanche.
The Avs have scored 3 and 5 goals in their first two games and are always capable of putting up a ton of goals.
The first 2 games for both of these teams so far this season have hit the over and tonight should be no different.
Expect goals, and lots of them tonight.
OVER 6.5 (-120)
KIRILL KAPRIZOV o3.5 SOGs (-105)
Kaprizov will be a consistent shot on goal target for me all season so you will see his name a lot.
He is the Wild’s best offensive player and one of the most dynamic scorers in the league. I think he also bags a goal in this one but his shots at almost plus money is a bargain.
He has hit his shots in both games so far and he should come out firing again tonight.
Valeri Nichushkin ATG (+235)
I looked at Valeri for his shots but the over 2.5 is too juiced for me at -145. So I am going to risk it and play his goal prop.
He has scored in both games to start the season and is one of the Avs most consistent goal threats.
He is on the first Power play unit and is always around the net for tip ins . For the value, I like this play a lot.
NATHAN MACKINNON o1.5 pts (+155)
For the value, this is my favorite prop in this game.
MacKinnon is one of the best players in hockey. He had 2+ points in both games to start the season so he is back to being a focal point of the Avs offense.
He has also had 2+ pts in six of his last seven matchups against the Wild.
For the plus money, the value is too good not to take.
