The Best Way to Bet the Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim Ducks NHL

The Anaheim Ducks are easily playing their best hockey of the season and enter Wednesday’s schedule with a five-game winning streak; the longest current such streak in the league. When a team is playing as well as the Ducks are, sometimes there is little-to-no value when backing them at the betting window in SU moneyline markets. Where you can find value in backing the Ducks, however, is to win in regulation.

The Ducks enter Wednesday’s action with the fourth-best winning percentage in games that ended in regulation at 59.6 percent (28-19). It’s no surprise that the Washington Capitals top the league at 78.7 percent (37-10) and the Dallas Stars sit second at 63.8 percent (30-17) as those are the top two teams in the NHL based on points.

After a painfully slow start to the 2015-16 season, the Ducks have the 11th most points in the league (70) as of Wednesday afternoon. A whopping 28 of their 31 wins have come in regulation and the Ducks have gone on to lose eight of their 11 games that have gone into overtime. So if you’re a Ducks bettor, you cringe whenever the game goes to extra hockey in anticipation of ripped ticket.

Take tonight’s game versus the Buffalo Sabres for example. Not the best example since the Sabres are toiling around the bottom of the Eastern Conference, but in your standard moneyline markets at online shop Bovada, the Ducks are -265 to win the game. In 60 minute moneylines, you get 40 cents as those odds drop to -225. Still a lot of juice, but much better odds nonetheless.

If you’re a puck bettor, this is certainly something to keep an eye on moving forward when looking for improved value in single-game tickets or even for parlay bets.

Here is a look at each team’s win-loss record after 60 minutes of hockey prior to the schedule Wednesday.
