Money Line Pick

Anaheim visits KeyBank Center for their fourth-straight game against a team from the Eastern Conference. The Ducks have had an up and down season, but they look to have plateaued a bit with five wins in their last 10 games. Buffalo has completely taken itself out of the conversation in the Atlantic Divison. The Sabres responded to two ugly losses with a 3-2 win against the Rangers in their last game. The Ducks have lost four of its last six games against the Sabres. The road hasn’t been kind to Anaheim either as they have only won six times in their last 20 games away from home. These teams have split their last 10 head-to-heads. Anaheim won the first meeting this season at Honda Center, but playing at KeyBank Center is a different animal. Avoid the Ducks here. Take the Buffalo money line.

Over Under Pick

Surprisingly Anaheim has made scoring goals a priority even if it hasn’t helped them put wins on the record. The Ducks have scored at least two goals in each of their last nine games. For Buffalo, their numbers have been in a steady decline for much of the season, and have been held to one-goal performances three times in their last seven games.  The last three meetings haven’t quite helped the recent stretch of totals, with two of the last three finishing with six or more goals. Yet taking an over 5.5 total here isn’t the confidence pick it should be. Play the under.
