The Colorado Avalanche are still the best team in the league, and they’ve played their best recent hockey on the road while being money making machines in the favorite role. The Detroit Red Wings have put together a nice little stretch, but they still can’t be trusted against the better teams in the league, and they’ve had no success against the Avs. Give me the Avalanche and the PL for max betting value.
