Edmonton Oilers vs Colorado Avalanche predictions and betting tips
Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl still are the first and the second best attackers of the play-offs. They played badly in the most recent match and made only five shots on target together.
The Avalanche are in good form now, but their play in H2H games against the Oilers in the regular season was not confident.
They won two out of three matches, but did not win a game in 60 minutes. Also, the Oilers have lost only one out of seven home matches in 60 minutes in the play-offs. I believe that they will not lose this match in 60 minutes.
A total of over 6.5 goals has played out in five of the last seven matches with the Edmonton Oilers participating and in four of the last six matches with the Avalanche participating. We have seen the same total in five of the last eight H2H matches. It may play out this time.
