Puck Line Pick

Buffalo continues their stretch of games against a team from the Central Divison, this time making a stop at Pepsi Center in Colorado. The Sabres escaped a tough game against Winnipeg with a 2-1 win. The Avalanche have won three-straight games. Buffalo has picked up a little steam with wins in five of their last six games. For Colorado, they have had the Sabres number with wins in five of the last six head-to-head meetings. Not to mention Buffalo is just 1-7 in their last eight visits to Pepsi Center. The Avalanche have won three straight meetings by at least three goals. Therefore a play on the Avalanche puck line is a must.

Over Under Pick

On two different occasions in the last three head-to-head meetings for the Sabres and Avalanche, Colorado has been hard to slow down. The Avalanche scored six goals alone in two of those games. Four of the Sabres’ last five games have resulted in over totals. With how easy the Avalanche has made goal scoring look taking an over six-goal total with high confidence is a must.
