The Avalanche are 36-16 in their last 52 road games and 79-31 in their last 110 overall. The Predators are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Avalanche last 6 overall. The over is 21-5-1 in Predators last 27 vs. Central. The Avalanche are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Nashville and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 36-16 in the last 52 meetings.

The Nashville Predators continue to play sluggish hockey as the offense comes and goes, and they’re not a team I’m trying to back against quality teams. The Colorado Avalanche are starting to look more and more like the team we saw a year ago. To me, you can make a strong argument this price should be steeper. I’ll lay the reasonable juice with the Avs on the road.
