Lightning vs. Ducks Pick

NHL Predictions: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Anaheim Ducks 11/12/17

Can the Tampa Bay Lightning pick up another win on the road as a big favorite when it takes on the Anaheim Ducks at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, Tampa Bay is the favorite on the road, as the Lightning are getting odds of -145 to win. Anaheim is listed with a money line of +130, while the over/under total has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Tampa Bay is on a three-game win streak right now, thanks to a 5-2 win at Los Angeles on Thursday night. The Lightning are 13-2-2 overall and 6-1-1 on the road. The Lightning are putting up 4 goals per game while allowing just 2.59 per game. Steven Stamkos has eight goals and 22 assists this season for Tampa while Nikita Kucherov is adding 16 goals and 13 assists. Andrei Vasilevskiy is in net tonight and he is 12-1-1 on the season with a 2.41 GAA and a .928 save percentage.

Anaheim is coming off a 4-1 win over the Canucks at home on Thursday night to snap a four-game losing streak. The Ducks are 7-6-3 overall and 4-4-2 at home this season. The Ducks are scoring 2.88 goals per game while allowing 2.94 per contest. Rickard Rakell is leading the team with six goals and eight assists while Brandon Montour and Ondrej Kase each have five goals. John Gibson is 5-5-1 in net with a 2.97 GAA and a .914 save percentage.

Bet on Lightning vs. Ducks

The home team has won eight of the last 11 meetings in this series, but the Lightning are also 5-2 in the last seven in this series. Tampa Bay has just too much scoring for the Ducks to compete most nights. The goaltending edge also goes to the Lightning, as they will face the weaker offense and have been better in net as is. The public betting is strongly behind Tampa today and I am with them.
