Ducks vs. Hurricanes Pick

2016 ducks getzlaf01

After a big win last night, will the Anaheim Ducks build off that momentum when they face the Carolina Hurricanes today at 5PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Hurricanes are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -155 to win, while the Ducks are getting a money line of +135 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Today’s game takes place from PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The Ducks picked up a nice win at Tampa Bay on Saturday night, 4-1, to improve to 5-4-1 on the season. The Ducks are 2-2 on the road. Anaheim is scoring 3.10 goals per game while allowing 3.00 per contest. The Ducks have had good balance in their scoring, as five players have seven points. Rickard Rakell is the top goal-scorer with five goals. John Gibson is 5-3-1 in net this season with a 2.80 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Carolina is coming off a 2-1 loss at home to the Blues on Friday. The Canes are now 4-4-1 on the season 1-2-1 at home. The Hurricanes are putting up 2.67 goals per game right now while allowing 2.89 per contest. Jeff Skinner has six goals and two assists to lead the Hurricanes while Justin Williams has one goal with five assists. Scott Darling is 3-3-1 in net with a 2.70 GAA and a .899 save percentage.

Bet on Ducks vs. Hurricanes

The Ducks have done well against the Hurricanes, winning six of the last seven meetings with the Hurricanes and four of the last five games at Carolina. The road team has also won four of the last five between these two. Carolina is only 1-6 in its last seven at home and 2-5 in its last seven when playing on one day of rest. I like the Ducks to build off last night’s win and carry it into another big victory tonight. The public is behind the Hurricanes, but I think the Ducks take it.
