Crazy how that works out.
Fresh off sailing over 6.5 goals in Colorado‘s 8-6 win, the number opened at 7 for Thursday’s Game 2.
And after some money landed on the over, we’re now seeing 7.5’s at FanDuel, DraftKings and SugarHouse — which would mark the highest total of any NHL postseason contest we’ve tracked, topping the previous mark of 7.
Oilers netminder Mike Smith allowed six goals on 25 shots Tuesday before getting the plug pulled.
It was the second straight Game 1 in which Smith was pulled. He was also yanked in the series opener against Calgary after allowing three goals in roughly 10 minutes in a contest that ironically produced more lamps lit (15) than the WCF opener.
Colorado’s laying chalk in Game 2 at a consensus price of -180. The Avs have cashed four of the past five overs as playoff favorites, while the Oilers have rattled off four straight as postseason ‘dogs.
Puck drop in Colorado’s slated for 8 p.m. ET.
