Two NHL Pacific Division teams clash tonight when Anaheim hosts Calgary. The focus will be on the puck-line in this contest, and we’ve uncovered a rare true value in that regard.

Wednesday Night Battle in the Pacific
The Anaheim Ducks will entertain the Calgary Flames on Wednesday with the opening faceoff slated for 10:05 PM ET. The emphasis will be on the puck-line in regards to making one of our NHL picks  for today. According to the NHL odds at Bookmaker, Anaheim is -1.5 (+155) and Calgary +1.5 (-180).


Ducks Domination at Home versus the Flames
The Anaheim Ducks have incredibly won 19 regular season games in a row at home versus the Calgary Flames. As a matter of fact the last time Calgary was able to capture a win at Anaheim came way back on 1/19/2004. Ironically that is almost eleven years to the day in which that occurred.


The Wear and Tear Factors
Tonight will be the finale of a five game in eleven day road trip for the Calgary Flames. Although they’ve won the first four games in this away swing, they’ll be at a distinct disadvantage in terms of wear and tear compared to today’s opponent (Anaheim). In addition, they’ll be facing a team tonight that averages 2.9 goals per game. Calgary has gone a dismal 2-11 this season versus opponents averaging 2.85 or more goals per contest.

The Anaheim Ducks will enter tonight’s game on a full three days of rest. They last played on Saturday, and came away with a 3-2 overtime win at Los Angeles. The Ducks will be playing their ninth home game out of their last ten overall. They’ve had just one away game in the last twenty-five days, and that was a short trip to Los Angeles. Anaheim has won four in a row, and six of their last seven games. The Ducks have gone an outstanding 63-27 the last two seasons following a win, and that includes 29-10 following a road win.

Final Analysis
Anaheim was a 3-2 winner over their Pacific Division rival the Los Angeles Kings in their previous game. The Calgary Flames will enter tonight having won four games in a row, and all of those took place on the road. Those specific results create a very profitable NHL money line betting system, which in turn, uncovers hidden value regarding the puck line.

Any money line favorite (Ducks), coming off a win against a team within their own division, versus an opponent coming off two or more road wins in a row, has seen the home team go 34-7 (82.9%) during the past five seasons, and they possessed a decisive +1.7 goal per game differential.

NHL Pick: Play on the Ducks -1.5 (+155) over the Flames on the puck-line at Bookmaker.
