The Colorado Avalanche (10-5-1) and Dallas Stars (11-5-2) meet Monday at American Airlines Center. Puck drop is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET (ESPN+).

The Avalanche are shooting for a sweep of their 3-game road trip. The Avs topped the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 in overtime Thursday and shut out the Washington Capitals 4-0 Saturday behind G Alexandar Georgiev.

The Stars have been rolling on offense lately, going for 4 or more goals in each of the past 5 outings, and 8 of the past 9 games overall. Dallas topped the visiting New York Islanders 5-2 last time out on Saturday.

Avalanche at Stars projected goalies

Alexandar Georgiev (8-2-1, 2.45 GAA, .930 SV%, 1 SO) vs. Jake Oettinger (7-2-1, 2.21 GAA, .927 SV%, 1 SO)

Georgiev has been red-hot lately, posting a 4-1-0 record, 2.01 GAA, .944 SV% and a shutout in his 5 games in November. He is coming off a 32-save shutout in Washington on Saturday.

Oettinger turned aside 27 of the 29 shots he faced in a win over the Islanders Saturday. He was a little shaky after returning from a 2-week absence due to injury, but he appears to be back on track after allowing just 4 goals on 50 shots in his past 2 appearances.

Avalanche at Stars picks and predictions

Prediction

Avalanche 5, Stars 4

Moneyline

The AVALANCHE (-105) are solid value play on the road, where they are 35-16 in the past 51 games. In addition, Colorado has won 11 of the past 15 games inside the Central Division.

Colorado doesn’t have a case of the Mondays, either, going 18-5 in the past 23 appearances on the day. More importantly, the road team has won 4 of the past 5 in this series.

Puck line/Against the spread

There is no puck line available in this game at the time of publishing, as the line is listed as a pick ’em.

AVOID.

Over/Under

OVER 6.5(+110) might be the best play on the board here.

Yes, the Under has dominated for the Avalanche lately — and in this series. It’s 4-0 in the past 4 for Colorado, and 6-1 in its last 7 on the road. It’s also 4-1 in the past 5 in this series, and 10-2 in the past 12 meetings in Dallas.
