Hockey betting handicappers have gotten little value out of either team in this pairing. Both teams have good NHL wagering reputations but that has cost them board value. The Anaheim Ducks still carry considerable hockey betting respect as a 2007 Stanley Cup Champion.
But since they still carry such NHL wagering credibility this costs them value, especially when they don’t perform up to their past high standards. Anaheim had an overall hockey betting record of 22-19-3-2 straight up and 22-24 against the hockey odds.
The Ducks have had their share of hockey betting problems since December 31 as they went on a stretch in which they were 3-6 against the spread.
Anaheim has been roughly break even on the NHL wagering over/under charts but did have a brief hockey betting spurt in which they went over the total in 4 out of 5 games from January 8 through January 16. All Star Ryan Getzlaf is the Ducks main hockey betting weapon as he led the team in points with 54 and goals with 17.
Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere may be also be an All Star but his numbers don’t reflect such status for this year as he had a goals against average of 3.04 and a save percentage of .905. The Ducks ranked just 17th overall on offense while ranking 16th overall on defense.
The New York Rangers had a strong overall hockey betting record of 27-15-2-2 straight up but were just 19-27 against the hockey odds.
The vast hockey betting discrepancy has to do with the Broadway Blue Shirts being one of the more “public” teams in the league and when they have any kind of straight up success they attract more board action than is the case for a regular team. The Rangers hockey betting strength has been their 7th ranked defense.
Their offense is lacking and ranked 24th. Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist had a .914 save percentage and a 2.53 goals against average. The Rangers have been a strong hockey betting under team as they went over the total in just 15 out of 46 games.
