The Colorado Avalanche look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Colorado Avalanche are averaging 3.6 goals per game and are scoring on 19.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Nathan MacKinnon leads Colorado with 32 goals, Cale Makar has 30 assists and Gabriel Landeskog has 107 shots on goal. Defensively, the Colorado Avalanche are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 79.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Philipp Grubauer has allowed 89 goals on 1,052 shots and Pavel Francouz has allowed 47 goals on 629 shots. The Colorado Avalanche have allowed three or less goals in six straight games.

The Kings are 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest, 15-40 in their last 55 road games and 28-58 in their last 86 overall. The Avalanche are 5-1 in their last 6 games as a favorite, 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 4-1 in their last 5 home games. The under is 5-1 in Kings last 6 road games. The under is 5-0 in Avalanche last 5 overall. The Kings are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

The Los Angeles Kings provide no betting value these days, as they're currently the second least profitable team in hockey and their performance gets even worse on the road. The Colorado Avalanche are playing some of their best hockey of the season, and they just beat the Kings by six goals about a month ago. There's really only one way to go here, and I'll be laying  the PL with the Avalanche.
