The Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Little Caesars Arena.

The Anaheim Ducks look for another victory after a solid 2-0 start to the season. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Cam Fowler leads Anaheim with one goal, Ondrej Kase has two assists and Adam Henrique has nine shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing one goal per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up two goals on 69 shots faced. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed two or less goals in their last five games.

The Detroit Red Wings also look for another win after a 2-0 start to the NHL season. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 4.5 goals per game and are scoring on 50 percent of their power play opportunities. Anthony Mantha leads Detroit with five goals, Tyler Bertuzzi has three assists and Dylan Larkin has six shots on goal.

The Ducks are 8-0 in their last 8 Tuesday games, 4-0 in their last 4 games as an underdog and 5-12 in their last 17 games as a road underdog. The Red Wings are 5-1 in their last 6 home games, 6-1 in their last 7 games following a win and 8-2 in their last 10 overall. The under is 4-0 in Ducks last 4 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Red Wings last 8 games as a favorite. The Ducks are 9-24 in the last 33 meetings in Detroit. The under is 16-5 in Ducks last 21 overall.

The home team has won each of the last six meetings between the Ducks and Red Wings, and seven of the last 10 meetings overall. And while both teams are off to a strong start, we can't ignore the fact the Ducks were awful on the road toward the end of last season and provided little to no betting value. Also, the Detroit Red Wings are on fire out of the gate offensively and have played some of their best hockey on their home ice. In a battle of unbeaten, I'll side with the home team and the cheap price.
