There are plenty of interesting matchups for fans to tune in for this evening, but there’s no question that bettors will want to pay special attention to the Western Conference matchup between the Anaheim Ducks versus the Chicago Blackhawks. Let’s take a look at what the 4 team parlay odds are predicting for this evening’s pairing.
Anaheim Ducks vs. Chicago Blackhawks – Monday, November 27th
When: 8:30 pm ET
Where: United Center, Chicago, Illinois
Stream: NBC Sports, NHL TV
Hockey Betting Odds:
Anaheim Ducks +1 ½ (-185) 5 ½ (-110) +160
Chicago Blackhawks -1 ½ (+160) 5 ½ (-110) -185
The Anaheim Ducks swim into this Monday night matchup sporting a 10-9-4 record that ranks the franchise 6th in the Pacific Division, due to the 24 points the franchise has accrued so far this season. That 24 point tally ranks the Ducks near the bottom of the division, and right now they have a 4 point lead over the 7th place Edmonton Oilers and are also 2 points behind the 5th place Vancouver Canucks. Considering that the Ducks are coming off a season that saw Anaheim finish 1st in the Pacific Division and 3rd in the Western Conference overall, it’s safe to say that the club isn’t having the season they were hoping for. Pegged as the betting sportsbook underdog this evening, the Ducks will probably have a hard time competing with the Blackhawks this evening. Especially considering the stroke of bad luck Anaheim has run to in November since the club is 4-8 so far this month which includes the 3-game losing streak the Ducks ride into Monday night’s pairing.
The Ducks will turn to Rickard Rakell to help deliver an upset over the Blackhawks. Rakell leads the team in points and goals as he’s sitting on 8 goals and 10 assists on the year. Corey Perry leads Anaheim in assists as he has 13 to his name so far. Perry also has 4 goals on the season.
The Blackhawks slide into this Monday night pairing sporting an 11-8-3 record that ranks them 4th in the Central Division. Chicago has accrued 25 points on the season which places them right in the middle of the pack in the division. Right now the St. Louis Blues lead the Central with 35 points and they’re followed by Winnipeg and Nashville, both of whom are sitting on 31 points on the season. Chicago has found a healthy dose of success so far in November as they’ve posted a 6-4 record so far. The Blackhawks have gone 3-1 in their last four games so players should feel comfortable siding with the hockey betting odds this evening.
Players tuning in for this Monday night matchup should keep an eye out for Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov, the engine behind the Blackhawks 11th ranked offense. Kane leads Chicago in points this season with 9 goals and a whopping 13 assists to his name. Anisimov is often the one cashing in Kane’s assists as he leads the Blackhawks with 10 goals on the year.
