The worst team in the NHL travels to Honda Center in Anaheim to look for their first win, can they fight through the adversity and avoid going 0-10-1? The defending home team started off slow but have now looked impressive in their last few games going 2-0 against reasonable foes.
The Coyotes have been beyond awful this season, even to their standards. The players and management have seemed to lost purpose and meaning since the news of the team not renewing the lease after this season.
With uncertainty ahead both on and off the ice, Arizona is a dicey team to side with.
Offensively, Arizona is last in the NHL at 32nd for goals and shots, as well as 31st in PP/PK%. Defensively, they are virtually no better at 32nd for goals against, 21st for shots against, and 31st once again in PP/PK%.
Until this team starts showing any sign of life, they are an easy fade with the right odds.
Anaheim looks to continue their two game winning streak at home against a team desperate for a win, however that team has had The Ducks number the last few years going 6-1 SU in the last 7.
Positively for Ducks bettors, their powerplay has been on fire as of late, boasting a sixth place spot in the NHL in PK/PP%. Not far behind is their scoring at 11th. Anaheim’s weak spot offensively is definitely their shot total at 17th league wide.
Through all the positive’s for Anaheim, they do have an Achilles heal, their defense. They are towards the back of the pack at 22nd for goals, and 24th for shots, also 15th for PP/PK% respectively.
The Anaheim Ducks have shown they can fight through adversity after dropping two games in a row in overtime/shootout, to win the next two games against reasonable teams with a flurry of goals.
BUT, can they break the curse they seem to have when playing against The Yote’s?
NHL Betting Trends:
- Arizona is 6-1 SU vs Ducks in last 7 meetings
- Arizona’s game total has been OVER the last 4 out of 5 times vs the western conference
- Anaheim is 2-6 SU in last 8 games
- Ahaheim’s game total has been OVER the last 5 out of 5 times vs the western conference
Free Arizona Coyotes vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Prediction
I believe the line should be significantly further in the favor of The Ducks, the reason most likely being the last few years of dominance Arizona has proved against Anaheim. However, the last few seasons were much different without the uncertainty in Arizona.
The most attractive line on this game is the total, both teams rank near the bottom of the league defensively, with a high scoring Ducks offense.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: OVER 5.5
The value couldn’t be better for a mid tier team at home, against an atrocious Coyote’s team that has yet to win a game. They will win their first soon enough, but can they match the firepower Anaheim has proved to have?
Pretty tough when your sitting last in the league in most offensive categories, but never say never! Because of these teams defensive capabilities, and the right line, we are going with the total on this one.
