The Anaheim Ducks (10-14-0) take on the Colorado Avalanche (15-7-2) Tuesday at Ball Arena. Puck drop is set for 9 p.m. ET (ESPN+). Below, we analyze BetMGM Sportsbook’s lines around the Ducks vs. Avalanche odds, and make our expert NHL picks and predictions.
This is the back end of a home-and-home for Anaheim as the Ducks stunned the Avs 4-3 in a shootout Saturday. The Ducks fell behind 3-1 in the 1st period and came all the way back for the victory. It was just the 2nd time the Ducks beat the Avs in the last 10 meetings.
For the Avs, D Cale Makar is questionable for this one with a lower-body injury. Colorado has lost 3 in a row as the Avalanche fell 4-1 Sunday to the Los Angeles Kings to complete their 3-game road trip. The other 2 were losses in overtime and via a shootout.
