We’ve got another matchup, highlighting this explosive Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets series. Will we see the same fireworks as Flames Nation bettors saw in Game 1?
Today’s expected goaltender matchup for our highlighted games:
The Colorado Avalanche’s Alexandar Georgiev (38-18-5) vs. The Winnipeg Jets’ Connor Hellebuyck (37-19-4).

Nathan MacKinnon over 4.5 shots on goal (-134)

A $10.00 bet would return $17.50.
The Dogg, Nathan MacKinnon, has been the engine for this team since they became competitive in the 2017-2018 season. Whenever his team needs a spark, they turn to MacKinnon. Expect him to carry the team after his team’s disappointing performance in the last game. 
Now, he hasn’t cleared this line in four straight games – a feat he’s only missed in five consecutive games twice this season. While he did miss in game 1, it wasn’t due to a lack of trying. MacKinnon finished with four shots on goal on 11 shot attempts. 
In two road games in Winnipeg this season, he averages 4.0 shots on goal on 10 shot attempts. Taking MacKinnon’s average shot attempts on the road against the Jets (10) and comparing that to his full season road game splits, he has reached over 4.5 shots on goal in 76% of those games, averaging 6.9 shots per game.
Of all the teams in the playoffs, the Jets allowed the most shots on goal to centre’s averaging 15.0 per game.

Connor Hellebuyck over 29.5 saves (-125)

A $10.00 bet would return $18.00.
We’re going right back to the prop from Game 1, as he cleared this line by 10!
Hellebuyck has cleared in three of his last four, averaging 33.8 saves per game. Over his last seven home games, he has eclipsed this number in four games, averaging 30 saves per game.
Against the Colorado Avalanche, Hellebuyck has cleared in 10 straight games, averaging 33.5 saves per game — impressive historical numbers for Hellebuyck. Over each team’s last 10 games before the playoffs, the Avalanche are averaging the fourth most shots for (33.8), while the Jets allow 28.9 shots per game.
