Anaheim is 1-8 in their last 9 games against a team with a winning record and 17-36 in their last 53 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Colorado is 7-1 in their last 8 home games and 8-2 in their last 10 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Colorado.

I get why Colorado is favored here, as the Avs have had the bulk of the success side-by-side against Anaheim this season. However, the Ducks have found a recent run of success out of nowhere, and to no one’s surprise, it’s come on the road where the Ducks seem to play their best and battle the hardest. I’ll take my chances with Anaheim on the ML here.
