Colorado has gone 0-3-3 away from home since beating Boston on Oct. 13 for its only win in eight road contests. Colorado has not been good on the road this year. However, I believe that still is due to the fact that they started the season practically on the road. Five of their first six games were on the road. Hard for a team to come together the right way going against the home crowd constantly. Remember the Avalanche have already beaten the Islanders once this year 5-0. That has to give the team confidence going into this game. 71% of all Off-Shore bettors are siding with the Islanders tonight. However, the line has moved from 2.31 to 2.25 for Colorado. Last time these teams matched-up Colorado was the slight favorite. This time you get an opportunity to get Colorado at a good price and by the looks of it “sharp” money may very well be on the Avalanche tonight. Best of Luck!!!
