Let’s take a look at this a Western Division clash on February 22, 2021 from a betting perspective in our Avalanche vs. Golden Knights betting preview with odds, picks and predictions.
Avalanche vs. Golden Knights Betting Pick
The Colorado Avalanche picked up a 3-2 victory over the Golden Knights on Saturday, with the game being delayed throughout the afternoon and early evening due to the bright sunshine creating dead spots in the ice at the Lakewood Resort rink on Lake Tahoe.

The Avs took a 1-0 lead into the dressing room –and stayed there for hours. Finally, at 9:00 pm local time, the clubs returned to finish off the remaining 40 minutes of play. Colorado forward Nathan MacKinnon scored late in the second to give his club a 2-1 lead. He then assisted on Devon Toews’ goal in the third, which sealed the game for the Avalanche, giving them their second victory against Vegas in the last three meetings.
Expect to see Marc-Andre Fleury in net once again for the Knights with backup Robin Lehner still dealing with an upper-body injury.

Bets We Like With a Golden Knights Win
Mark Stone to Score a Goal Anytime (+270, DraftKings)
The Golden Knights’ captain has four goals and 12 assists on the season, and he did get some solid chances on net in Saturday’s game with four shots on goal. I like for the veteran forward to get some more opportunities and score this time around.

Bets We Like With an Avalanche Win
Nathan MacKinnon to Score a Goal Anytime (+138, FanDuel)
Colorado’s top player scored a goal and picked up an assist on Saturday. It was his fourth tally and his 17th and 18th points on the season. Now is the time for the former Calder Trophy winner to start heating up in the goal department, and I like him to find the back of the net once again this evening.
Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome
Goal Scored in First 10 Minutes (YES -139, DraftKings)
With the transition back indoors after their strange Saturday matchup, I feel both clubs will be looking forward to a return of some normalcy inside the rink. Both clubs play really tight defensively against one another, but I think we see a bit of a faster pace to start this contest, and we should get a goal before the 10 minute mark of the opening frame.
Avalanche vs. Golden Prediction
Colorado is picking up right where it left off before their two-week COVID break, and that’s a bad sign for not only Vegas tonight, but the rest of the Western Division. The Avalanche are playing solid hockey and I like for them to pick up a 4-2 win on the road.
