The Avalanche Have Been Very Strong On The Road

Sportsbooks Can’t Handicap Avalanche In Playoffs On Road

The Colorado Avalanche are slight underdogs from a -104 to +100 range for Game 4 in Tampa.
Since the 2021 playoffs, the Avs are 0-4 on the road as the favorite, and 10-0 on the road as the underdog.
The Lighting are 13-1 at home in the playoffs, with their only lost being to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round of the playoffs.
The over has been hit in the first three games of this series, with the total being set 6 goals.

TAMPA – With Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final taking place Wednesday at Amalie Arena, the Avs are a slight underdog.

Having a 7-1 record SU on the road in the playoffs this season, sportsbooks ultimately handicapped the game as a Pick ‘Em.

Odds For Game Four

Colorado -104
Tampa Bay -106

Avs Strong On The Road

Going back to the 2021 playoffs, the Colorado Avs are 0-4 (-4.85 units) on the road as the favorite, but are 10-0 (+14.4 units) when on the road as the underdog. Clearly, this Avs team has had no issues overcoming their odds this far, and will have a chance to become 8-1 on the road tonight with a win in Tampa.

However, the team’s only loss on the road took place in the last Stanley Cup Final game on Monday night.

Betting On The Over

When playing on the road, the Avs have also had no issues hitting the set over this postseason. In the last 13 playoff games, Colorado has hit the over 10 times.

Bovada Odds For The Game Total

Over 6.0 (-110)
Under 6.0 (-110)

In the last five NHL games played by these two teams, the over has been hit every game.

Goals Scored Per Game In Stanley Cup Final

Game 1: 7 goals
Game 2: 7 goals
Game 3: 8 goals

The Avs have scored 78 goals this season, averaging 4.6 goals per game. The Lightning found a way to match their scoring heavy offense in Game 3, making betting on the over the best option for this series.

A Case For The Bolts Taking Game Four

Over the last 14 playoff games, Tampa Bay is 13-1 SU when playing at home, with their last home loss coming from the Maple Leafs in Game 3 of the first round.

When at home as the favorite, the Lighting have nine wins over the last 10 games.

Even though the Avs have been strong on the road, they have struggled in pick’em style games (between -120 and +120). Being 3-17 SU over the last 20 in these games, they are 0-3 in the last two seasons.

Tampa Bay, meanwhile, has only faced two of these toss up games since 2020, winning both of them.
