26

Colorado at Tampa Bay

Sunday 06/26 08:15 PM Eastern

1 unit on Colorado -110 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.91)  RESULT: WIN

Colorado had a chance to win the Stanley Cup in front of its home fans on Friday night, but the Lightning had other ideas and pulled out a 3-2 win as the series returns to Tampa Bay for this one. However, the trends actually favor the Avalanche in Game 6 as they have won eight of their last nine road games, and they are 42-10 in their last 52 games after scoring two or fewer goals in their previous game. Colorado opened as a slight favorite in this game, even though it's on the road as it still appears to be the better and deeper team. Darcy Kuemper was the losing goalie in Game 5, but he stopped 26 of 29 shots, and one of the goals he allowed by Jan Rutta was admittedly one of his worst in the final. Colorado is 57-22 in its last 79 games versus a team that allowed two or fewer goals in its previous game. Even though it would be at home, Colorado doesn't want to go to a Game 7 when anything could happen. Take the Avalanche.
