2020 Stadium Series Odds
The NHL Stadium Series is one of the most popular events of the year for punters. However, sportsbooks haven’t yet released the odds for the big event.
History Of NHL Stadium Series
This is one of the most popular NHL series’ of the season and follows on from the Winter and Heritage Classic that are both played earlier in the season. However, it is completely different from those two games, as it is the only one to be played in the USA annually.
The game has been part of the NHL calendar since 2014 and is one of the most popular NHL betting occasions of the season. Since 2017, only one game per season has been held. The first match of the NHL Stadium Series was played between the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium.
2020 NHL Stadium Series
This years event will take place at Falcon Stadium in Colorado as the Avalanche welcome the Los Angeles Kings. It should be an exciting fixture, as there are typically a lot of goals involved in the special games. There is an average of six goals per game in the NHL Stadium Series.
This year’s event will be a much lower attendance than it has been over recent seasons since it will be housed in a college stadium. The attendance that the stadium can achieve is just under 50,000, which will make it the second-lowest attendance in the history of the series. However, it will undoubtedly be a positive experience for the local area as it has never been held in Colorado before.
Who Is Competing?
This year’s game will see the Colorado Avalanche take on the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings were involved in the first NHL Stadium Series fixture, but in truth, they have a very slim chance of winning this game. They are currently placed at the bottom of the Pacific Conference and are struggling to get in touch with the teams at the top of the conference. There is a clear gulf between the Kings and the remainder of the conference, and the Avalanche should have few problems in dispatching their opponents in the Stadium Series fixture.
Meanwhile, the Avalanche are enjoying a good season and are looking good value for a playoff berth. No team in the Western Conference has scored more than them this season, and they may have an outside chance of winning the conference if they can string together a run of form. It will be a huge day in Colorado, and it is very hard to see the Avalanche losing in front of their home fans on the big occasion.
