Straight Win Market:

Colorado Avalanche – Odds: +120.00 (Bodog)

San Jose Sharks – Odds: -137.00 (LeoVegas)

Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche just don’t know when they are beaten and their over-time win over the Sharks in game 6 could be telling. They upset the odds to thrash the Calgary Flames 4-1 in the opening play-off game and are only a win away from reaching the semi-finals. JT Compher was influential in the last game against the Sharks and the Avalanche will be hoping for a repeat performance from him here.

San Jose Sharks

The San Jose Sharks haven’t been at their best thus far in the play-offs, edging past Vegas Golden Knights and now battling with Colorado Avalanche. The series has fluctuated thus far but it is very now or never for the San Jose Sharks in front of their passionate home fans. Marc-Edouard Vlasic bagged two goals last time out and how the Sharks will be hoping for more of the same from him.
