Puck Line Pick
The Penguins may be in the midst of a four-game winless streak, but they have a great chance to break out of that funk on Friday. That sentiment has more to do about their opponent, but there are some encouraging Penguins-centric numbers. For instance, they’re a solid 15-13-2 on the road this season (including a 14-16 record against the spread), and they’re 27-14-5 as favorites. Best of all, Pittsburgh has already beat the Ducks once this season, topping them 2-1 back in October.
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, the Ducks ended their four-game winless streak with an overtime victory over Edmonton on Tuesday. However, the team is only 3-4-4 over their last 11 games, and they’re a lowly 13-13-4 at home (including a 15-15 record against the spread). Plus, the team hasn’t shown much resilience as underdogs, going 17-28-5 in that position.
