Colorado Avalanche vs Boston Bruins National Hockey League Game Total Call
Colorado Avalanche: Look to rebound from a dismal season
Unable to live up to their somewhat lofty expectations last season, the Avalanche were 11th overall Stanley Cup chalk, Colorado is a dark-horse early on in the 2015-16 NHL season. After a 5-4 loss to the Minnesota Wild in their opener, the Avalanche posted a 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars and they are playing a third straight home game. Colorado was outshot in both games by a 63-51 count and goaltender Semyon Varlamov hasn’t be very good in between the pipes. From a positive standpoint, twelve Colorado skaters have at least one point and their top three players each have five points.
Boston Bruins: Happy to leave a brutal 0-3 season start behind them in Beantown
Posted with one of their highest prices (+1100) to win the Eastern Conference in recent memory, Boston is living up to their low expectations as the Bruins are off to a miserable 0-3 start to their season. Boston was bashed about at home by Winnipeg (6-2) Montreal (4-2) and Tampa Bay (6-3) during their first three contests. After allowing 14 goals, on 91 shots, G Tukka Rask has been banished to the bench as Jonas Gustavsson makes his first start in a Boston uniform. Gustavsson owns a 2.89 GAA over 148 games during six seasons split evenly between Toronto and Detroit.
Boston vs Colorado Alternate Game Total Call: Changing to Gustavsson by Boston seems like a desperate move. As was the case in the New York vs Winnipeg contest last night, we find the 4.5 alternate game total price to be somewhat “gift-like” here. While the win wasn’t easy – we needed an empty net goal to cash, the OVER was the right side. We like this line even more as these teams have been involved in five straight very high scoring contests. The Bruins three matches averaged 7.6 goals per game while nine goals have been scored in both of the Colorado’s first two contests. Remember, all we need is for this match to reach a 2-2 tie to cash our winning ticket. Load up with a 1,000 unit wager on the OVER +4.5 alternate game total posted at the Bodog sportsbook.
