Jets at Avalanche projected goalies

Connor Hellebuyck (1-1-0, 2.50 GAA, .929 SV%, 0 SO) vs. Alexandar Georgiev (2-0-0, 2.50 GAA, .911 SV%, 0 SO)

Hellebuyck was great, stopping 40 of 41 shots against the Rangers. He took a step back against Dallas, though, allowing 4 goals on 29 shots. He was 1-2-1 with a 4.74 GAA and an .875 SV% in 4 starts against the Avs last season.

Georgiev is thriving in his 1st shot at being a No. 1 goalie. He stopped 15 of 17 shots against the Blackhawks and 36 of 39 against a tough Minnesota team. He hasn’t faced Winnipeg before.

Jets at Avalanche picks and predictions


Avalanche 5, Jets 2


The Avs should cruise in this matchup, but there’s too much juice on the moneyline. Tipico has a SPECIAL BOOSTED opportunity Wednesday. Grounded: AVALANCHE TO WIN BY 3+ GOALS (+210) is worth sprinkling on.

Puck line/Against the spread

The Avalanche are getting steady goaltending and scoring a ton. That’s a good combination for a puck line that can serve as a hedge for the aforementioned boosted prop. Take the AVALANCHE -1.5 (+102) at plus-money.


The Jets are 0-2 O/U thus far, but Colorado is 3-0. Colorado has scored fewer than 4 goals just once. I like them to hit that Wednesday. Take the AVALANCHE OVER 3.5 TOTAL GOALS IN REGULATION (-125) and the OVER 6.5 (-117).
