Anaheim is the second-lowest scoring team in the NHL. The Ducks have scored just 12 goals in their last nine games, all losses. They have failed to score more than two goals in eight of these games.
The Penguins, on the other hand, are averaging four goals per game during their last 10 games.
So something has to give, offense or defense? I see defense carrying the play. A total of 6 is too high for a Ducks game. The Under is 5-0-2 when the Ducks have had a 6 total.The Over has yet to cash.
This is the first game the Penguins are playing in California this season. They are not used to a three-hour time difference. Under has been a strong profit-maker when the Ducks meet an Eastern Conference opponent. The Under has won 72 percent of the time during the past 26 instances.
