Anaheim is 1-7 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 16-35 in their last 51 games overall. Minnesota is 10-1 in their last 11 home games and 6-2 in their last 8 games overall while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games as a favorite. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

I get why the Wild are favored here, but the defense isn’t the issue for Anaheim, it’s been the offense that doesn’t show up. The Ducks battle hard and are 12-2 on the puck line on the road this season. The only way to bet Minnesota here is on the puck line, but I’m not sure the Wild win this one by a pair. I’ll take my shot with Anaheim +1.5 in this one.
