Here we go again,,,,,,enjoy.
2 UNIT = Anaheim Ducks @ Montreal Canadiens - OVER 5.5 GOALS (+108)
(Note: I'm risking 2.00 units to win 2.16 units)
These two teams have played pretty wide open hockey so far this year. The Ducks are avearging 36.2 shots per game (2nd in the NHL) while the Canadiens are averaging 32.6 shots (6th). Anaheim is giving up 30 shots per game and Montreal is giving up 32.4. The Ducks sit 3rd in the NHL averaging 3.44 goals per game, while Montreal is 6th with 3.22 per game. These two teams don't meet often, but since 2010 in their three meetings we've seen totals of 7, 7 and 5.
It has been rare for either of these teams not to score at least 3 goals in a game, as the Ducks have only not done that twice this year (once being their first game of the year when they had 36 shots on net and just one goal) and the Habs have only not done it twice as well. In games at the Bell Centre we've seen totlas of 7 5, 8, 3, and 7 so far this year. With the Ducks playing on the road we've seen totals of 7, 7, 5, and 6. The OVER is 5-2 in Montreal's last 7 vs a team with a winning % over .600. There's a good chance we see this game get over the total, and at a good price I will take the OVER 5.5.
