Jets Lead Series 1-0

This is the fourth straight year where Colorado enters the opening round of the playoffs as the series favorites.

However, this season the Avs enter with the shortest odds since 2020, where they were -290 favorites over Arizona. The last time they were underdogs was in 2019 when facing Calgary, but the Avs ended up upsetting the series 4-1.

Odds as of April 21

In the last five seasons, the Avs have lost just six games in the first round of the playoffs. The tightest series came last year when Colorado was upset 4-3 by the Kraken. The 2022 and 2021 campaigns saw the Avs accomplish back-to-back first-round sweeps.

Despite being favored to win the series, Colorado has yet to defeat Winnipeg this season. In a pre-playoff preview, the Jets recently destroyed the Avs 7-0 in mid-April. 

Notable Player Performances

Connor Hellebyuck: Hellebuyck has yet to record lower than a .938 SV% against Colorado this season. 

Nathan MacKinnon: Of his 82 appearances this campaign, MacKinnon's worst plus-minus rating of the season is against Winnipeg (-4). However, MacKinnon has got a point on every goal scored against the Jets this season. 

Josh Morrissey: Of the three outings, Morrissey has collected a season-high seven points against the Avs (2 G, 5 A) and is an insane +10. 

Winnipeg Depth: Of the 17 goals the Jets have pocketed on the Avs, 47% have been scored by the second and third lines. Five of the goals recorded were sniped by the top unit, with three coming from Gabriel Vilardi's stick. 

colorado vs winnipeg playoff series expert pick: jets (+115), Jets 4-2 (+600)

I am hammering the underdogs in this series. On three separate occasions this year, the Jets have shown us they can shut down the Avalanche. 

Colorado's offense is not to be taken lightly, averaging the league's second-best 3.69 GPG. But, Winnipeg's defense has been sturdy through the last six months, allowing a league-low 2.43 GPG. I mean, a round of applause for puck-stopper Hellebuyck, a Vezina contender.

Sure, Nathan MacKinnon looks like he's in video-game mode with nearly 140 points this regular season. But, he's just one guy and certainly hasn't singlehandedly been able to carry his bench to a victory over Winnipeg yet.

I am a firm believer that depth is what catapults a team in the playoffs. Colorado's first-round exit against Seattle last April is an exact example.

Late season pick-ups with Sean Monahan (13 G, 11 A, 32 GP) and Tyler Toffoli (6 G, 3 A, 16 GP) scatter offensive skill across the lineup. With Nino Niederreiter expected to return, the Jets are in full force.
