Arizona is 0-4 in their last 4 games overall and 8-23 in their last 31 road games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Anaheim is 28-58 in their last 86 games overall and -19 in their last 26 games as a home underdog while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games overall. The home team is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings between these two teams.
Once again, two teams in the West Division that I really honestly and truly have no desire getting behind as both have let me down and I’ve almost made money fading both. With that said, I’m going to side with the under here. Anaheim’s been good on defense aside from last game and Arizona’s a defense-first team to begin with. I just don’t see this one getting any higher than 5 personally, so give me the under here.
