After a comeback win in Game 1, Edmonton failed to score a single goal in Game 2 against Colorado. So here are our hockey betting predictions and picks for the Game 3 of the Avalanche vs Oiler playoff series.
Colorado has had its direction with Edmonton in the initial two games. Before the Avalanche let the Oilers return, they secured them pretty well. However, Game 2 was on a different level.
Colorado vs Edmonton Analysis and Predictions
Investigate Colorado’s lineup, and you can see why they are where they are. Cale Makar, Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon, Nazem Kadri, and Gabriel Landeskog are hotshots and have given rivals headaches.
Our in-house pay per head experts expect the Avs to outshine their opponent. The series has a 58.33 xGF% and is second among the 16 playoff groups with a 59.47 xGF%. Also, the show of dominance is one of their more destructive traits. Colorado has a second-best 31.6% achievement rate. However, it has just changed over two of nine in this series. In addition, Edmonton is taking a lot of penalty minutes because the Avalanche is allowing them to play the game.
It isn’t easy to understand what Darcy Kuemper is going through. The team removed him from the first game due to a chest injury. Also, he didn’t play in the second game. When gotten some information about his status, coach Jared Bednar just expressed “he’s great,” without any specific situation.
