The Ottawa Senators and Anaheim Ducks face off on Wednesday in an NHL showdown at the Honda Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Senators vs Ducks prediction.

Ducks Looking to Bounce Back

The Ducks in the last game faced off against the Vancouver Canucks, and it wasn’t the worst game of the season, but the defense gave up two goals and the offense only managed one. Two games ago against the New Jersey Devils, they won 4-3, and they need to get the offense back on the right track. The Senators on the season are averaging 3.27 goals, while their defense is giving up 3.59 goals per game. The defense is ranked 30th overall, and they are going to need the defense to be better. 

Senators Have Lost Four Straight Games

The Senators have lost four straight games, and they can’t have a lot of confidence heading into this game. In the last game against the Philadelphia Flyers, the Senators scored two goals but the defense gave up four goals. The Senators are averaging 3.27 goals, while their defense is giving up 3.59 goals per game. The defense is ranked 30th in the league, and they are going to need the defense to be better. Tim Stützle has scored 14 goals and added 42 assists.

Senators vs Ducks Betting Prediction 

These are two of the worst defenses in a league, and it’s going to be the same here. The Ducks' offense has been a bit inconsistent, but they are going to have no issue against the Senators offense. Both of these offenses are going to have no issue running up the score and this is going to be a comfortable over. I expect seven or eight goals to be scored. Back the over to cash.
