The Anaheim Ducks and the Vancouver Canucks meet in NHL action from Rogers Arena on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Vancouver is a -215 home favorite while the Ducks are +175 road underdogs. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.
For Anaheim, Urho Vaakanainen is out for the season while Adam Henrique, Anthony Stolarz and John Moore are all out as well. For Vancouver, Collin Delia is questionable for this game with an illness while Filip Hronek is out. Ethan Bear, Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Travis Dermott are all out indefinitely as well for the Canucks.
Vancouver’s 6-5 win back on November 3rd, 2022, made it four straight meetings without back-to-back winners in this matchup.
Anaheim is 0-4 in their last 4 division games and 1-9 in their last 10 games played on no rest while the under is 5-0-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. Vancouver is 1-9 in their last 10 games following a win and 4-1 in their last 5 games played on 1 day’s rest while the over is 25-8-5 in their last 38 Wednesday games.
I’m backing the over here. I just don’t trust either of these sides to keep the puck out of the net right now, and the last two meetings between these teams each produced 11 goals and I think we could have another thriller brewing here. Give me the over.
