Golden Knights at Avalanche: Projected starting goalies

Robin Lehner (5-1-1, 2.55 GAA, .898 SV%) vs. Philipp Grubauer (19-7-0, 1.71 GAA, .930 SV%, 5 SO)

Lehner has been sharp in his two starts since returning from injury. He is 2-0-0 with 3 goals allowed on 41 total shots. The first start Friday against the Los Angeles Kings might not wow people, as the Kings have had their ups and downs, but the follow-up win over the St. Louis Blues was rather impressive.

Grubauer has won six straight starts, and seven consecutive appearances after coming on in relief March 16 against the Anaheim Ducks for another win. He allowed none or one goal in each of those seven outings. Grubauer has faced VGK four times this season and is 2-2-0 with a 2.01 GAA and .927 SV%.

Golden Knights at Avalanche: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Golden Knights 2, Avalanche 1

Money line (ML)

The GOLDEN KNIGHTS (+160) are quite a nice value as moderate underdogs in the Mile High City.

The road team has won five of the past seven meetings in this series, and the underdog has cashed in eight of the previous nine head-to-head contests.

Against the spread (ATS)

The Golden Knights +1.5 (-175) will cost you nearly two times your potential return. While that might very well cash in what should be a tight matchup, just bet the Golden Knights straight up instead as a much better value.

AVOID.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 5.5 (-105) is the way to be in this one. Grubauer is giving up next to nothing, and Lehner has been red-hot since returning from the injured list, too.

If it makes you feel even better, the Under has cashed in four straight meetings between these two Western Conference powerhouses.
