Minnesota is 12-5 in their last 17 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games following a win while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. Anaheim is 3-7 in their last 10 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 12-3-1 in their last 16 games as an underdog. The under is 19-7-2 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams.

I get why you could make a case for either side, as neither side play in really high-scoring games, and in those low scoring games, one bounce could be all the difference. However, I’m not trying to pick a side here in this dumpster of a game, so I’ll back the under here. We hit with it the last time these two met and I think we could see a carbon copy of the last meeting with a low-scoring game maybe in the area of 3-1, so I’ll back the under here.
