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.
