Heading into Game 3, the Avs are the -165 favorite. Colorado’s favoritism is primarily because the match happens at Ball Arena in Denver. Will the Avs get it done? Or will Winnipeg rest away home ice? Check out NHL odds, analysis, and a free pick for Avalanche versus Jets.

Why Bet on the Winnipeg Jets?

Winnipeg’s offense was okay in Game 2 when scoring 2 goals. It’s obvious, though, that if the Jets wan to win this series, they’re going to have to force the Avs into a shootout.

Winnipeg was fantastic when dropping 7 into the net in the first game. That’s the way to beat Colorado, which will destroy you if you’re not aggressive enough. The Avalanche’s blue line is too solid for Winnipeg to break unless they take shot after shot. Expect the Jets to be ultra-aggressive on Colorado’s ice.

Why Bet on the Colorado Avalanche?

In 2 games versus the Jets, the Avalanche has scored 6 goals and 5 goals. Game 1 almost ended in a Colorado victory, but the defense couldn’t stop Winnipeg.

But in Game 2, the Avs stepped it up. Everybody contributed in the impressive victory. Game 2 was a dominant performance from Colorado, one that proves the Avs are indeed a Western Conference favorite.

Jets vs. Avalanche 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 3 Expert Betting Predictions

The difference between Game 1 and Game 2 is stunning. Colorado adjusted enough to stop Winnipeg from scoring more than 2 goals. What’s interesting about the defensive performance is that the Avs provided it on Winnipeg’s ice.

It’s going to be difficult for the Jets to rally. Colorado is excellent at home, going 31-9-1 during the regular season. Not only that, but the Avs now have a blueprint to stop Mark Scheifele and his mates.

On the other side, Nathan MacKinnon remains one of the NHL’s best players. He’s getting help from mates Mikko Rantanen and Zach Parise. Parise scored a goal in Game 2 and will be even better in Game 3.

Colorado is the better team. The percentages say the Avalanche win. Back the home squad at the decent -165 number.
