Anaheim is 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games as a road underdog. Los Angeles is 3-9 in their last 12 games overall and 0-4 in their last 4 games as a home favorite while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 home games. Anaheim is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case you could make for both sides, but I’m leaning towards the Ducks here. Both teams are struggling, but from a betting perspective, the Ducks have been a tough out on the road and numbers-wise, they have been better on the road than the Kings have been at home. Add in the value of the plus money here, and I have to lean the way of the Ducks in this spot.
