Ducks Look To Fly Through the Hurricane

The Carolina Hurricanes get no rest as they return to the PNC Arena to play host to the Anaheim Ducks in the second half of a back-to-back. Carolina has consistently been a large favorite on the NHL betting lines while Anaheim has typically been an underdog. The ‘Canes have been a reliable favorite with a 35-20 (35-14-6) record on the moneyline and are a profitable team. But Anaheim has played them well.

Ducks Gearing Up For Deadline

Anaheim is over 12 units down if a bettor placed a unit on their moneyline every game. That’s considering that this team has been an underdog in all but two games this season. And now, the Ducks have more reason to sit its better veterans with the impending NHL Trade Deadline.

Troy Terry returned to action but the likes of defenseman John Klingberg and center Adam Henrique are out with lower body injuries. The two, along with defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, could be trade bait and may not be in Anaheim by the end of next week.

The Ducks snapped a six-game skid by upsetting the Capitals on Thursday. That was also their first road victory in regulation since January 26. Anaheim remains a sketchy team to bet online on. But maybe it can take advantage of a potentially tired Hurricanes team coming from a game on Friday night.

Hurricanes Have Arguably Been NHL’s Best Team

What fatigue? Carolina is 6-0-1 when playing on the second night of a back-to-back. The team averages 4.42 goals per game in this span. However, if you folks want to nitpick, the Canes have won just two games by two or more goals. So the puck line, at a steep price now, could be tough to trust.

Carolina is also 12-6 as a favorite of -200 or shorter. One of these losses came against the Ducks when it was favored at -300 in Anaheim. That loss was also the one blemish Carolina had in that run as it went 15-0-1 in this span. Since November 26, the Hurricanes have been the NHL’s best team.

Yes, Carolina has been better than Boston with an 84.3-point percentage. In fact, the Canes are just nine points away from Boston with a game in hand. Boston has been dominant but Carolina has been equally impressive as of late. This is why this team will face hefty sportsbook odds.
