Money Line Pick
A pair of teams with nearly-identical records face off in the midst of identical three-game winless streaks. Who will blink on Wednesday? It could actually be the home squad. Each of those games during the Avalanche’s three-game winless streak have taken place at home, dropping their overall record to 15-9-5. Most worrisome (from a betting perspective), the squad is only 15-14 against the spread when playing in Colorado, and the team has already dropped one game to the Islanders this season (albeit, a close 1-0 game).
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, while the Islanders three-game winless streak has entirely taken place on the road, that’s a bit more palatable. Plus, New York is still a respectable 15-12-2 away from Long Island/Brooklyn, and they’re a solid 17-12 against the spread on the road. Further, the Islanders were playing better hockey prior to this brief skid, as the team has gone 5-1-1 between January 21st and February 11th.
