Devils vs. Ducks Prediction
The Ducks are in the midst of a three-game losing streak in which their offense has disappeared. They'll host the Devils tonight at 10:00PM ET in what should be a low-scoring affair.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Ducks are -265 money line favorites to beat the Devils, who are +220 to pull off the upset. As for the total, the number currently sits at 5 goals.
Anaheim is on a 0-2-1 slide following its 5-2 loss at St. Louis on Friday night. The Ducks were outscored 4-1 in the final period and have now registered just three goals in their past three games. Coach Bruce Boudreau felt the need to give his team Saturday off to clear its head before returning to practice on Sunday but that alone won't inject life into Anaheim's offense.
The under has cashed in four of the Ducks' last five home games and is 4-1 in their last five games versus a team with a losing record. The under is also 15-6-2 in the Devils' last 23 road games, is 13-6-8 in their last 27 games playing a tam with a winning record, and is also 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams.
