Anaheim Ducks

Vancouver Canucks


VAN Canucks -1.5 Point Spread

Over 5.5 Game Totals

Puck Line Pick

In this Sunday match-up, we have two teams going opposite ways. The Canucks are well within the playoff race, while the Ducks are the second worst team in the Western Conference. Vancouver are currently riding a two-game win streak after beating Chicago 3-0 last time out. Anaheim just got crushed 6-0 by Calgary, so they are looking for any kind of bounce back. Note that the Canucks are one of the best home teams in the country, posting a record of 19-6-3 so far. Vancouver are 8-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite and 7-1 in their last 8 against a team from the Pacific Division. Anaheim have not been good on the road all season, which is why I like the Canucks to win this game on the puck line. 

Over Under Pick

This is not a total I love because of the scoring problems Anaheim have had. They average just 2.5 goals per game, compared to Vancouver, who score 3.2 goals. While offense for both sides have slowed down recently, their defenses have really looked bad. Each allowing 3.2 goals or more over their last five games. I expect their to be plenty of goals scored. That being said, it is only a lean because I cannot trust the Ducks enough.
