Hockey bet value on these Pacific division rivals would not be what most in the bet on hockey community would expect. The Anaheim Ducks have slipped a notch from previous seasons but still carry hockey bet credibility as the Stanley Cup champion from two seasons ago.
Anaheim had an overall hockey bet record of 19-15-3 straight up but was just 18-21 against the hockey odds. One big reason for Anaheim’s lack of hockey bet value would be the departure of team president Brian Burke to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Burke was the main architect for the Ducks bet on hockey Cup title team and his presence always assured that this would be a premier franchise. With Burke’s departure there definitely seems to be a hockey bet vacuum that is yet to be filled. Anaheim ranked in the middle of the hockey bet statistical charts on both offense (16th) and defense (15th).
The Ducks have not had much hockey bet success as of late as from December 11 through January 2 they got the cash in just 3 out of 10 games. Keep in mind that a “public” team such as Anaheim, with so much “name brand” recognition, often is over-valued on the bet on hockey boards and a loss can be costly with them as a result.
The Los Angeles Kings, on the other hand, do not have a lot of hockey bet credibility as consistent losers over the years. As a result of this lack of love from the hockey bet crowd the Kings often bring ADDED value on the board in order to entice action their way.
Los Angeles had an overall record of 15-16-2-4 straight up but was a profitable 21-16 against the hockey odds, which drives the value point home. It would surprise many hockey bet handicappers to see that the Kings ranked just 24th overall on offense while ranking 8th overall on defense.
LA struggled as of late, however, as from December 15 through December 29 they got the cash in just 2 out of 8 games.
