Vegas is 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 53-23 in their last 76 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games. Anaheim is 17-35 in their last 52 games overall and 15-38 in their last 53 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a home underdog. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

Vegas is the far superior team here and is the only team that’s really doing anything involving the playoffs in about a month, but I wonder if this is a spot where the Ducks finally show some grit and step up to the occasion. With that said, I think a safe play is the under here, as it’s hit in each of the last three meetings between the two sides and I just don’t see a high-scoring game in this one so once again, give me the under.
