The Colorado Avalanche is set to take on the Las Vegas Golden Knights in what could end up being a game with a lot of playoff implications. In fact, between both teams sitting first and second in the West division, and the series record sitting at 3-3, this one really seems to be one of those up in the air kind of games.
The Colorado Avalanche are 3-2 in their last five games and 7-3 in their last ten games. While the team has maintained a relative dominance over the rest of the West division, they are coming off a loss against the St. Louis Blues, who beat them in 2 out of 3 games.
The Avalance have outscored their opponents 16-14 in their last 5 matchups, which really doesn’t leave them much room for error. The Avalanche will also be without Brandon Saad, Jacob MacDonald and Logan, O’Conner, who are all big contributors to the team.
Las Vegas Golden Knights
As for the Las Vegas Golden Knights, they are 5-0 in their 5 matchups and 9-1 in their last ten. Of course, a lot to that has to do with the rock-solid goalie rotation of Robin Lehner and Marc Andre Fleury, but also the offensive flurry led by Mark Stone, who sits with 4 goals 1 assist 5 points and 11 shots on goal.
He is also backed up by the likes of Chander Stephenson and Jonathan Marchessault, who combine for a total of 4 goals, 3 assists, 7 points, and 7 shots on goal. If nothing else, this isn’t a team that you want to take lightly, which is why this is going to be a difficult game for the Avalanche.
Free Colorado Avalanche vs Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL Prediction:
Let’s be honest here. the series between the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Colorado Avalanche are split 3-3 at the moment, making it pretty difficult to discern an actual straight-up pick. Sure, the Golden Knights are on a 9 game winning streak and one of the toughest teams in the entire league, but the history between these two could spell an upset on the ice on Wednesday.
Again, take the risk if you want on betting on either of these teams straight up, or even attempt to bet on the money line, but understand that you are taking an unnecessary risk. A risk that could leave you out 100 dollars of your money. If nothing else, you are better off betting the over/under on this one.

4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Under 5.5
The over has only been hit once during the ongoing series between the Knights and the Avalanche, making it very unlikely to happen again. Furthermore, with all the injuries that the Avalanche are dealing with at the moment, getting over that 5 point mark seems to be a little too much to ask.
Then again, the Knights have hit the over in 3 of their last 5 games, but they were all against less than stellar opponents. In all honesty, this game has all the makings of a defensive battle that will see both teams scoring relatively low numbers.
