NHL Betting Picks – Detroit Red Wings vs Colorado Avalanche Thursday, Oct 17, 2013


NHL Betting Lines: The most important surprise to date this season in the NHL has been the Colorado Avalanche. They look to be far better this season under new head coach Patrick Roy and the team is starting to be taken seriously as a contender in the Western Conference. The team has already gone on the road and won at the Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals. Now they will get a big home test from the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

NHL Betting PicksLet’s take a look at the game and NHL picks. 3-in-4 for Detroit Red Wings. This is not a great spot for the Detroit Red Wings who are playing their third game in four nights. They were at the Boston Bruins on Monday; home against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday and now they have to go to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday. The Detroit Red Wings are now in the Eastern Conference and the early results have been mixed. The team started off the season just 3-2 with a marginal offense and a defense that was outside the top 10.

Colorado Avalanche Playing Great

The Colorado Avalanche have been playing great this season as they won their first five games of the season. They have been getting excellent goaltending and their offense has been far better than expected. Head coach Patrick Roy has the team playing better than they have in years and there are real hopes for this team being a contender this season in the Western Conference.

Series Notes

The Detroit Red Wings have taken 7 of the last 10 in this series with the last three meetings going under the total. The teams have split their last four games in Detroit.

NHL Picks

I am definitely not going against the red-hot Colorado Avalanche so I will lay the small number and take the home team and also play the game under the NHL lines at the offshore sportsbook.
