Avalanche & Hurricanes To Experience Another Offensive Power Outage

Avalanches Hurrincanes

Neither of these teams can be counted on to score goals so it makes sense that Champion Handicapper Dana Lane looks to get plus money with a play on the 'under'. 

It's not a large sample size but this series is beginning to be one that's consistently cashing ‘under' tickets as three of their last four meetings have gone below the total with one ‘push'. A more significant trend starts to form when you examine how the Avalanche have fared when playing their third game in four days. In their last 22 games in this spot the ‘under' is 13-4-5. Two fairly solid trends to get us going in this one.

After expecting the Avalanche to make some moves at the trade deadline, the day came and went without either of these teams making impactful moves. What we're left with is still the worst offensive team in the league in Colorado and the Hurricanes who own the 23rd ranked offense. Somehow the bookmakers and the public think that this game should be shaded to the ‘over' which the betting public seems to agree with as 62% of all tickets written were on the ‘over'.

The Hurricanes come into the game feeling far better about their future than Colorado after they managed to earn a 2-1 victory over Arizona but even in victory they only managed two goals against the lowly Coyotes.

Colorado was shutout for the 11th time this season against St. Louis after giving up two early goals Sunday, they looked lethargic and disinterested. Colorado has now dropped 11 of their last 13 games. In their last four games Jared Bednar's team has managed just 2 goals, one of those came with 16 seconds left against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Carolina have dropped

Center Matt Duchene even pointed out that it's hard for his team to even get shots on goal. Colorado is on pace to score 33 less goals than their worst offensive season in franchise history. Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog made the comment that "Obviously scoring isn't coming in bunches right now, so we have to focus on defense. I'm not sure I want my leader to indicate that it's time to win game offensively because whether it was intentional or not, it's basically a statement that calls his team out.

Let's go and get a plus price on a total that's between two poor offensive teams who have to get to six goals to beat us.
