The Colorado Avalanche have been one of the more consistent teams in the league this season and have done nothing but win in the favorite role. The opposite can be said for the Anaheim Ducks, a club that has major issues at both ends of the ice, continues to lose at an alarming rate and is the second least profitable team in the sport. Only the Sabres have lost more money than the Ducks for bettors this season. The Avs shutout the Ducks on Friday. Give me the Avalanche and the PL for max betting value.
