Nashville tries to get back in the win column vs Anaheim

The Nashville Predators roll into the Honda Center to play the Anaheim Ducks on Friday and these two clubs have been the models of inconsistency this season. Both teams are having trouble finding their grooves and leave a lot to be desired for experts who predicted their rise back to the top of the Western Conference.

SHARK BITES
  • Anaheim is 4-10 ATS in its last 14 games.
  • Nashville is 2-8 SU in its last 10 games on the road.
  • Nashville is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games against Anaheim.

The reigning Western Conference champions have been a hard team to get a read on this season for bettors. The Preds are 6-6 ATS and 5-7 SU in 12 games this season. But that type of up-and-down play seemed to work out OK for them last season, going into the playoffs as an eighth seed and making the Stanley Cup final. Nashville opens as a slight dog at -105 and offers decent value.

Anaheim’s -1.5 puckline opened at a whopping +288 and could be a sneaky wager to cash in on. Although the Ducks lost at home against the Leafs on Wednesday, Anaheim is playing better hockey these past two weeks and is 4-2 SU and ATS in its last six games. If the Ducks puckline scares you off, you can still get decent value for their moneyline, which opened at -102. 

The total opened at 5 and bettors shouldn’t expect a lot of goal scoring in this matchup. In Nashville’s last nine games, the UNDER has hit in seven of them. On the other side of the puck, the total has gone UNDER in five of Anaheim’s last six home games. Also, both teams rank in the bottom half of the league in goals scored this season and in the top half of goals allowed. That’s a recipe for an UNDER in this contest, which opened at a juicy +130.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Anaheim Ducks were listed earlier today as -108 moneyline underdogs at most sportsbooks tracked by OddsShark (including Bovada), while oddsmakers set the opening betting total around 5.
