The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks face off on Thursday in an NHL showdown at the SAP Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Ducks vs Sharks prediction

All the Ducks Know To Do is Lose

It’s been an awful season for the Ducks and they are coming off another loss in the last game. The Ducks faced off against the Nashville Predators and they scored two goals, but the defense gave up four goals. Two games ago against the Los Angeles Kings they were defeated 3-2. The Ducks are averaging 2.59 goals while their defense is giving up 3.55 goals per game. The offense is ranked 31st while the defense is ranked 31st. Frank Vatrano has scored 26 goals and added 18 assists. 

Can the Sharks Bounce Back?

The Sharks faced off against the New Jersey Devils in the last game and the defense was awful giving up seven goals. The Sharks gave up three goals in the second period and four goals in the third period. The Sharks are averaging 2.08 goals while their defense is giving up 3.83 goals per game. The offense is ranked 31st in the league while the defense is ranked 32nd. This is a team that has had issues scoring all season and they are going to need to find a way to get the offense going here. Tomas Hertl has scored 15 goals and added 19 assists so far this season. The Sharks will play against the Stars after this game.

Ducks vs Sharks Betting Prediction

These are two teams that have bad defenses, but this game is going to be about the terrible offenses. The Ducks are averaging 2.59 goals while the Sharks are averaging only 2.08 goals per game. Both of these teams are going to struggle to get even two goals and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
