Ducks vs. Golden Knights Pick

NHL Predictions: Do Ducks have chance at upsetting Golden Knights? 2/19/18

Can the Anaheim Ducks solve the impressive home ice advantage the Las Vegas Golden Knights have had all season? Game time is slated for 10PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Golden Knights are listed as a -155 favorite on the moneyline. The Ducks are a +135 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. Las Vegas opened as a -175 fave before the line was bet down.

Bet Today's NHL Action

As of Monday afternoon, 68 percent of public bets have come in on the Golden Knights. Online wager info also shows that 78 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

Las Vegas has swept all three meetings this season, the first-ever meetings for the two franchises. The Golden Knights have won 4-2 and 4-1 in the games at Anaheim, while the previous meeting in Las Vegas ended in a 4-3 shootout win.

The Ducks come in having won two in a row on the row including a 3-2 shootout triumph at the Wild last time out. Anaheim is 5-5 in its last 10 games, while the under has hit five consecutive times and is 7-3 over the last 10 games. On the season, the under is 37-22 in Anaheim games. 

Las Vegas has won three straight games, all at home. The Golden Knights are 7-3 over their last 10 games and the over has gone 7-3. Las Vegas is 14-2 over its last 16 games against Pacific Division opponents. Additionally, the Golden Knights have taken care of business against weaker foes as they are 5-1 in their last six games against teams with a losing record.

All the info suggests to take Las Vegas, including the fact it is an incredible 22-4-1 at home this season as an expansion franchise. But the last time these two squads played here, it went to a shootout that was anyone's game. I'm going to say luck will be on the side of the Ducks here as we get them at an attractive price. Las Vegas has to lose occasionally at home, right?
