SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS
The Ducks are not contenders to win the championship at 200/1, 0.5%. They are one of 3 teams with these odds (#28 in the league). They do not win the championship in any simulations. They are not a good value to win the West either at 100/1, 1%. The Ducks are averaging 76 points per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 81.5. At +400 the Ducks are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 6% chance. They have less than 1% chance to win the division. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #14 in the West.
