The year’s NHL hockey betting action continues this Monday night with a thrilling Anaheim Ducks vs. Vancouver Canucks contest. The Ducks are having a rough season and should be easy pickings for Vancouver at home this Monday night. The Canucks on the other hand, have hit a pretty severe slump and could truly use an easy win. Will Anaheim be that easy win tonight? Let’s check on this evening’s NHL sportsbook betting odds to find out.
Anaheim Ducks vs. Vancouver Canucks – Monday, February 25th
When: 10:00 pm ET
Where: Rogers Arena, Vancouver, BC, Canada
TV: Local Broadcasts
Stream: NHL TV
NHL Hockey Betting Odds:
The Ducks swim into this evening’s matchup sporting a meager 24-29-9 record that ranks them penultimate in the Pacific Division. And with a 57 point tally on the season, the Ducks have no hope of making the postseason this year. Nevertheless, they’ll still be taking to the ice tonight to try to upset the Canucks on the road. While the odds are pegging Anaheim as an underdog on the road, the Ducks do have a 7-2-1 record in their last 10 versus Vancouver. On top of that, Anaheim is 2-1 in their last 3 versus the Canucks.
So should bettors take the Ducks on the upset line this Monday evening? At the present time it seems a bit misguided seeing how down in the dumps Anaheim is. Furthermore, they’ll be going up against a team that is a bit better on offense. Right now Anaheim ranks dead last in the league in scoring while Vancouver ranks 27th.
Players to Watch: Ryan Getzlaf (11 G, 28 A, 39 PTS.), Adam Henrique (12 G, 20 A, 32 PTS.), and Rickard Rackell (9 G, 17 A, 26 PTS.).
The Canucks enter tonight’s NHL hockey betting action sporting a 26-28-8 record that nets them 80 points on the season. That 80 point tally ranks Vancouver 5th overall in the Pacific Division. Despite ranking in the lower end of the division, Vancouver still has a shot at making the postseason this season. This is because the 3rd seeded Vegas Golden Knights have only racked up 69 on the year. With a little bit of luck, and a severe turnaround, Vancouver can certainly lock up a spot in this year’s postseason. However, seeing as how the club is 5-1 in their last 6, and seeing as how they enter tonight’s action riding a 3 game losing streak, there’s no guarantee Vancouver will turn things around.
Players to Watch: Elias Pettersson (26 G, 28 A, 54 PTS.), Bo Horvat (21 G, 25 A, 46 PTS.), and Brock Boeser (21 G, 20 A, 41 PTS.).
