Calgary Flames vs. Colorado Avalanche, NHL Free Pick (04/11/19)

Calgary comes into the playoffs as the top seed in the Western Conference and playing a Colorado team they haven’t lost to since last year. The Flames won all three of the season contests and finished with a 26-10-5 home record, the third best in the NHL. Colorado, on the other hand, finished with a 17-16-8 road record.

This is the first time the Flames and Avalanche have met in the playoffs. The Flames made the playoffs a year ago but as a much weaker seed. They were swept in the first round by Anaheim. The Avalanche are also making their second straight appearance. They also were bounced in the first round a year ago by Nashville.

While -190 is not much value, it is the first game which I always recommend throwing caution to.

Look at the Lightning last night; they had dominated Columbus all year and had a 3-0 lead early, but then within an hour they lost the game. You can also take a shot at +140 to win by 1.5 or bet it live when the odds usually drop to -1 after the puck drops. Then you can play win or push with Calgary.

Best Bet: Calgary Flames -190
