It’s another win-or-go-home game for Colorado in this home game as they trail the Dallas Stars 3-2 in the series.

Colorado has yet to win on home ice against Dallas in this series, losing their previous two games 4-1 and 5-1, respectively.

Tonight, we are looking to target Artturi Lehkonen to see over 2.5 shots on home ice for some NHL odds value at the best sportsbooks.

Dallas Stars vs. Colorado Avalanche

Friday, May 17, 2024 – 10:00 PM ET at Ball Arena

Low Shot Line Worth Targeting

Artturi Lehkonen comes into tonight’s game as the Colorado Avalanches 2nd highest shot taker thus far throughout the playoffs having an average of 3.2 shots per game. Throughout the regular season, Lehkonen averaged 2.3 shots per game.

So far Lehkonen has cleared the over 2.5 shots line in 6 of his 10 playoff games but has done so in just two of the opening five games of this series.

With Colorado being on home ice in a win-or-go-home game, we are confident Lehkonen will get chances and we love his odds and line to see over 2.5 shots in this matchup.

The Pick

Despite Lehkonen only seeing 3+ shots in two of the first five games of this series, he has had over 2.5 shots in 3 of his 4 home games this post-season.

We were expecting this line to be 3.5 for around +130 or at the very least juiced to -125 on his over 2.5 shots line, so we are more than happy to get involved in Lehkonen’s shot total at these current odds and would happily bet it down to as low as -130.
