Team Outlook and Scouting Report

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.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 44% of their games last season so their 35-37-10 met expectations. Money Line bettors lost -404 on them. They were not good on puck lines going 41-41 (-1729 loss). More of their games came in under (47) than went over (32). Their next game vs the Coyotes should be close. The Ducks are winning 50 percent of computer simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

They are the #28 ranked team in goal differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #26 ranked team among home teams.
