Arizona is 6-1 in their last 7 games as a favorite and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Anaheim is 16-35 in their last 51 games overall and 7-20 in their last 27 games as a home underdog while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
I get why you could make the case for either side here, but we’ve had a total of 5 or more in each of the last six meetings and the over is 4-1-1. For two teams that struggle to score and play decent enough defense, they can really put goals on the board when called upon. I think we have a great shot at hitting the over here, so I’ll take it.
