Anaheim Ducks Betting Analysis
The Anaheim Ducks are playing out the string this season and they’re close to landing with the best odds to draft generational talent Connor Bedard. They’ve posted the third-worst record in the league, just two points ahead of both Chicago and Columbus. They’ve dropped eight of nine, and been outscored 15-5 in the last three.
Troy Terry will not travel with the team on the road trip. He and his wife, Dani, are expecting their first child to be born early, and he will remain home with her.

They may be without their top-two point-getters also. Troy Terry isn’t on the road trip as he’s expecting his first child, and Trevor Zegras sustained a lower-body injury Monday and didn’t play Thursday.
When you’re the third worst team it should come as no surprise that stats won’t be good. In Anaheim’s case, they’re second worst in scoring, and dead last in the NHL in goals allowed. They’ve lost eight of nine against the Pacific, and haven’t defeated a team in playoff position since beating Carolina on February 25th.
Edmonton Oilers Betting Analysis
The Edmonton Oilers have been playing brilliant hockey of late, having gone 12-2-2, and they’ve racked up points in nine straight affairs. They’ve closed the gap in the Pacific Division to just two points of Vegas, with huge wins over the Golden Knights 7-4 and Kings 2-0 in the last two times out.
Stuart Skinner (@EdmontonOilers), who led the entire NHL (rookies and veterans) with 10 wins in 12 games (10-1-1, 2.83 GAA, .908 SV%, 1 SO), has been named the NHL’s “Rookie of the Month” for March.#NHLStats: https://t.co/b4E3TmZJdt pic.twitter.com/jC1GvMKDle

Goaltender Stuart Skinner has really stabilized the crease, as off-season free-agent addition Jack Campbell hasn’t panned out as the Oilers had hoped thus far. Connor McDavid continues to be his dazzling self, with a ten-game point streak in tow (seven goals, 13 assists), to have a commanding lead in scoring for the campaign (144 points, next closest is teammate Leon Draisaitl at 117).
Playing into Edmonton’s favor is the fact that Anaheim is 9-54 in their last 63 games as an underdog of +201 or greater.

Ducks vs Oilers Pick & Prediction
Edmonton has everything to play for to win the Pacific, with the Ducks limping to the finish line, and they’ll likely be without their top-two players. Our model has this Ducks vs Oilers game going the home team’s way 4.56-3.4.
Ducks vs Oilers Same-Game Parlay Picks
|Edmonton Oilers Puckline||-200|
|Over 6.5 Goals||-170|
|Connor McDavid Anytime Goal Scorer||-205|
With the over hitting in the last eight matchups between these two clubs, goal scoring should be at a premium again Saturday. The Ducks have lost on the puckline in four of their last five contests.
Since there is next to no value on the Oilers moneyline of -490, taking the puckline, and adding in a Connor McDavid goal gives the parlay a bit of a boost. He’s found the back of the net in three straight and four of five against the Ducks.
Pick: Edmonton Oilers Puckline (-200), Over 6.5 Goals (-170)
