Sunday Night NHL Puck-Line Monster
The Anaheim Ducks will host the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday at 9:05 PM ET. My handicapping focus will be on the puck-line in this matchup. According to the NHL betting odds at Bookmaker, Anaheim is -1.5 (+135), and Winnipeg +1.5 (-160) on the puck-line.
Jets are Money on the Road
The Winnipeg Jets enter tonight having gone 21-21 against the money line this season. However, they’ve gone a very profitable 12-9 against the money on the road, and have earned 6.7 wagering units in doing so. Putting those positive units into proper perspective, by placing a $100.00 money line wager on the Jets in each one of their road games this season, you would’ve have realized a profit of $670.00. As a matter of fact, the Jets have gone 3-1 (+3.8 units) in the last 4 and 6-3 (+7.2 units) in their last 9-games on the road. Winnipeg has also seen four of their last five losses on the road come by exactly one goal. When taking all of these numbers on the road into account, I’m sure you can realize why I deem the Jets to be a very enticing NHL pick on the puck-line tonight.
A Puck-Line Case against the Ducks
The Anaheim Ducks have gone 5-5 in their previous ten games. Each of their five wins during that time has come by exactly one goal. The Ducks are 0-8 in their last eight games as a -1.5 puck-line favorite. The Ducks have managed to score only two goals or less in seven of their previous ten games. They’ve also allowed three goals or more in each of the previous four contests.
The Winnipeg Jets have gone nine consecutive games without going under the total. During that time, six contests went over the total, and three others resulted in a push. The bottom line is, excluding pushes, the Jets have seen their last six totals all go over the number. Winnipeg allows an average of 2.48 goals per game, and is officially playing in the 2nd half of their schedule. Why is all of this information so important in regards to a NHL puck-line wager? I’m glad you asked.
Any road team (Winnipeg) that’s playing in their 2nd half of their schedule, coming off six or more totals results that went over the number, and they allow an average of 2.55 goals or less per game, has seen that road team go 24-8 (75%) straight up since 1996.
