The San Jose Sharks and the Colorado Avalanche meet in NHL action from the Ball Arena on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Colorado is listed as a -350 home favorite while San Jose is a +280 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For San Jose, Jacob MacDonald is questionable for this game while Radim Simek is out until mid-March. For Colorado, Kurtis MacDermid is questionable for this game while Gabriel Landeskog and Pavel Francouz are out until mid-March as well.
Colorado’s 4-2 win over San Jose back on March 31st, 2022, made it three straight wins for the Avs in this head-to-head matchup.
San Jose is 7-24 in their last 31 games following a win and 16-36 in their last 52 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Central division. Colorado is 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 65-30 in their last 95 games against the Western Conference while the under is 8-2-1 in their last 11 games against the Pacific division.
I’m backing the over here. The Avs are clearly the better team but they’ve had issues closing the deal as of late. That being said, I think they can get whatever they want offensively here. On the other side, the Sharks do play their better hockey on the road and I see it being no different here. I think we’re marked for goals here. Give me the over.
