The Colorado Avalanche remain locked into the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference despite losing their last three games. They look to finally break that streak when another struggling franchise greets them at their home stadium. The Winnipeg Jets have lost four straight and eight out of their last 10 overall. In fact, their recent losses have officially eliminated them from postseason contention. With neither team having much to play for, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Avalanche vs. Jets NHL Betting Odds

Colorado has won seven out of their last eight games when they have allowed five or more goals in their most recent outing. They are also excellent when playing on a Sunday, with a 5-1 record to show for it. To make everything that much better, the Avalanche hold a 55-13 straight up record in their past 68 games when going up against a team with a losing record on the season.

As for Winnipeg, they are 5-2 in their last seven games against teams in the Western Conference. Unfortunately, they are 1-7 in their past eight when getting two days of rest. They have also lost all five of their recent games against a team with a winning percentage greater than .600 on the year. When it comes to the total though, the over has been consistent. It has cashed out in six of their last seven games against teams from the Central Division.

Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche haven’t lost four straight games all season long and chances are they don’t want to do that right before the playoffs. From top to bottom, this roster looks incredible. There is a reason that they are championship favorites heading into the playoffs. They need just two more points to break their franchise record for most points in a single season. However, one of their top offensive weapons, Nathan MacKinnon, believes that they are the only ones standing in the way of making this happen. He said, “We’re shooting ourselves in the foot a lot of the time.” Colorado will be missing quite a few key rotational pieces due to injuries but nevertheless they are a loaded roster. The question is how motivated will they be for an otherwise meaningless record here.

Winnipeg Jets

Winnipeg is completely demoralized after grinding to a halt in this recent six-game road trip. This now marks the first time since 2016 that the Jets won’t be making their way into the playoffs and a lot of their players have already spoken out about how heartbreaking this has been. It’s clear that this group won’t roll over for their last four home games of the season, though. Defenseman Nate Schmidt said, “One thing you can control as you get to these last four games of the year is your effort. You can control how you’re going to go out.” We won’t be seeing this group in the playoffs, but beating the championship favorites could be a silver lining. Similar to the Avs, the question is how motivated will they be? That makes this a tricky game to bet on.
