Hurricanes vs. Avalanche Prediction: The Hurricanes in Denver: Category W (11/12)

Sweatpants Jesus

The Carolina Hurricanes travel to Denver to take on the Colorado Avalanche in a battle of two of the league’s best.

The Canes just gave the business to the Oilers, winning 7-2 in Carolina. They dominated the Oilers all night long and that is nothing new this season.

The Hurricanes are off to a great start, winning 9 of their first 14 and looking dominant doing it.

Can they continue their fast start tonight against the reigning Stanley Cup champs?

The Avalanche came back from their 2 game stint in Finland, where they won both games against the Jackets, and pummeled the Predators, 5-3.

The Avs have looked great the past few weeks and are back in excellent offensive form, with Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Cale Makar all looking like All Stars yet again.

In this battle of two of the leagues best, who will come out on top of this Saturday night showdown?

Prediction

It is really hard to fade the Avalanche, especially with how well they have played the last few games. But its more about who they have played for me.

The last 5 opponents for the Avs have been the Preds, Blue Jackets, Islanders, Devils, and Rangers.

The Canes last 5?

The Oilers, Panthers, Maple Leafs, Sabres, and Lightning.

The Canes have played a higher level of competition that past 2 weeks and they won 3 of those 5.

They are ready for this one and I love the plus money value to get the job done on the road.

Best Bet

Hurricanes ML (+102)


Props

Brent Burns o2.5 SOGs (-176)

This is obviously too juiced to play individually so I paired Burns with Rasmus Dahlin from the Sabres for a plus money 2 teamer.

I explained it all and the rest of my SOGs today HERE
