Anaheim Ducks at Vancouver Canucks NHL Free Pick

Vancouver has been one of the hottest teams in the NHL over the last month or so and they’ve won 7 of their last 10 games while defeating some of the best teams in hockey over that span. The Canucks recently won 3-1 at home against the Chicago Blackhawks in an impressive one-sided win and have won 5 in a row at home while giving up a total of just 4 goals combined in those games.

One thing that supports a bet on the Ducks here is that the road team has won in 5 of the last 8 head-to-head meetings between the Ducks and the Canucks. Vancouver won 5-0 on the road as a +105 underdog in January while the Ducks won 7-3 here as a +136 underdog a week prior. This series is knotted at 1-and-1 and 5 of the last 6 between these teams have gone over their respective totals (Thursday’s line is set at 5 goals).

Anaheim had struggled a bit recently while dropped 4 in a row but has since rebounded with back-to-back wins over the Edmonton Oilers. Beating a team like the Oilers doesn’t really properly show that a team is back to their winning ways but it’s a step in the right direction after the Ducks lost at home against the Colorado Avalanche and the Columbus Blue Jackets during that recent losing streak.
