Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Chicago a -185 favorite, while Ahaheim is a +165 underdog. The over-under has been listed at 5.5. Play begins at 8:30PM EST.

Chicago enters play with a 40-25-8 overall record and it is 23-14-0 in home contests. The defending Stanley Cup champions are 6-2-2 in its last 10 games. Anaheim comes in with a 41-28-5 record and has compiled an 18-16-3 road record.

NHL Prediction: Naturally, the first inclination would to look at the heavy favorite Chicago Blackhawks as the easy choice. But betting is never that easy and Chicago has been overvalued quite a bit this season. This is a huge game in terms of playoff position for both of these squads and Anaheim will undoubtedly be putting in a top effort to steal a win here. Chicago is far less consistent than it was a season ago and have only been above adequate at home. While the Ducks are certainly not a sure thing, I love the value they get at +165 and am taking them tonight.
