Ducks Continue To Be UNDER Royalty

The Anaheim Ducks have not been very good this season, but their struggles have equalled profits for bettors as the team has gone UNDER in nine of their past 14 games with only three of those games going OVER. The Ducks and their opponents have combined for 51 goals since the start of December, an average of just 3.6 goals per game. The Toronto Maple Leafs will head to the Pond on Wednesday night for a battle of the mediocres.

Shark Bites
  • The Maple Leafs are 6-1 in their last seven games vs the Ducks.
  • The Ducks are 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win.
  • The Maple Leafs are 8-19 in their last 27 road games.

The Ducks have been surprisingly strong recently as they have gone 4-0-1 in their past five games thanks to their special teams play. Anaheim is a perfect 16-for-16 on the penalty kill in that span while scoring six goals on the Sportsbook. Goaltending has also been incredibly hot for the Ducks as the team’s netminders have only allowed seven goals in the past five games.

The Leafs will give Jonathan Bernier his eighth consecutive start in net to start their three-game California road trip. Bernier is 5-2 with a 2.42 goals against average and a .925 save percentage during his seven game starting streak.
