Currently, the Avs are leading 2-0 after winning Game 1 and Game 2 over the Oilers. The team has also won 15 of 18 series. Colorado is also noted as the best-of-seven series switches locales to Edmonton. And also, not to mention, the Avs’ record of 56 wins, compared to the Oilers’ with 49 wins.
With this record, the Avs are more likely to win Game 3. However, the odds might differ from the picks. The pick for Game 3 is the Oilers with a spread of +1.5.
In the upcoming game, the Avs will visit the Oilers at Rogers Arena, and fans are reportedly rooting mostly for the Oilers. They are known to give better performances while playing at home, and such situations have happened a lot this postseason when the team won their last three home games.
With the record of 20-21 at home during the regular season, the Oilers will need to win this game at all costs because the team will face a greater struggle to defeat the Avs in four of the next five games.
The goal total for the upcoming game is seven goals. Sports bettors will have a safe bet if their chosen team manages to score at least four goals in Game 3. The game between these two teams will start at 8:00 PM ET. It will be broadcast on TNT or CDC channels in Canada.

Other names such as Nazem Kadri, J.T. Compher, Nathan MacKinnon, and Cale Makar are other potential goalies for the Avs.
The Oilers, on the other hand, will have Mike Smith as their projected starting goalie. Smith has a save percentage of.916 and an SAA of 3.19. However, there is also a possibility that the team’s coach, Raymond Woodcroft, might switch Smith with Mikko Koskinen. Check out the best sportsbooks for betting on the NHL Playoffs!
