ROGERS' 10* NON-CONF TOTAL 'COACH'S CORNER!' > > THE BIG ONE!
NY Islanders vs. Colorado,
02/19/2020 22:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 3
Total: -111/+5½ Over
The set-up: Two teams which don't normally play to many high-scoring affairs collide in this non-conference matchup. However, each enters hungry for a break out performance and I believe that determination is going to translate into production on the ice once it's all said and done. The Isles are just 5-5 in their last ten. The Avs enter hungry for sure though after three straight losses. From a situational stand point, I think this one sets up as a higher-scoring shootout.
The pick: Note as well that New York has seen the total go over the number in 14 of its last 23 vs. teams with winning records, while Colorado has seen the total soar over in interestingly, six of eight already this season after playing three straight home games (this is the finale of a four-game home stand.) The conditions are right for a shootout finally in my opinion.
10* TOTAL COACH'S CORNER on the OVER Isles/Avs.
