Matchup History

Vegas’ 3-2 win over the Avs back on January 2nd, 2023, snapped Colorado’s three-game win streak while extending the road team’s win streak to five in this head-to-head matchup.


Vegas is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games against the Central division. Colorado is 74-27 in their last 101 home games and 97-40 in their last 137 games following a win while the under is 20-7-3 in their last 30 games against a team with a winning record.


I’m sticking with the under here. I get the case to be made for either team in this one, but the last few meetings between these two teams have all been low-scoring and I don’t envision this game being any different. This feels like a playoff-type atmosphere where the first to 3 wins. Give me the under here.
