Hockey Betting: Anaheim Ducks vs. Minnesota Wild

Hockey betting Saturday includes one of the best games on the hockey wagering board with Anaheim at Minnesota.

Hockey betting fans know the atmosphere at Minnesota is “wild” and electric but Anaheim has been a solid hockey wagering away team.  The Anaheim Ducks still carry hockey betting “street cred” because of their Stanley Cup championship two seasons ago.

This season they have not proven to be worthy of such hockey wagering respect, however.  Anaheim had an overall hockey betting record of 21-17-3-2 straight up but was just 21-22 against the hockey gambling lines.  Because Anaheim is such a “public” team a hockey betting loss on the Ducks can be quite an expensive setback.

Anaheim has had their best hockey wagering value come on the road as they were 9-8-2 straight up away from the Honda Center and get the extra hockey betting value that comes with playing on the road from the oddsmakers.

Anaheim has been in the midst of a rough hockey betting stretch recently as from December 2 through January 9 they got the cash in just 3 out of 10 games.  In that same hockey betting span they went over the total in 7 out of those 10 games.

Overall Anaheim ranks a mediocre 17th in the league on offense while ranking a somewhat better 13th overall on defense.  Ryan Getzlaf has been Anaheim’s main hockey betting asset as he led the team in goals with 15, assists with 34, and points with 49.

Goaltender Jean Sebastien-Giguere has been good but not great and his backup, Jonas Hiller, has better numbers.  The Minnesota Wild had an overall hockey betting record of 20-17-2-1 straight up and 19-21 against the hockey gambling lines.

The Wild always plays before a packed, sold out, and raucous Excel Energy Center and yet had only a 11-7-2-1 mark as a host this season.  Minnesota’s hockey betting weakness has been their 29th ranked offense.  Their 2nd ranked defense has been their salvation.

Goaltender Niklas Backstrom had a 2.17 GAA and .927 save percentage.  The Wild had just 6 overs in 21 home games this year.
