Anaheim Ducks Vs. Minnesota Wild Predictions
What do you do when a team is in the deepest hole of the season, and they have no idea how to get out it? You bet against them. That’s what savvy bettors would look for when the Anaheim Ducks face the Minnesota Wild on Thursday Night. “I just see the frustration,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said after their last defeat. Anaheim has lost 12 straight games; the longest losing streak in franchise history and it doesn’t look like they have an idea on how to get out of it. In their last three games, they have entered the final period with a one-goal lead, yet they have failed to close it out.
When teams are on a hot streak, you ride them; when they are on a losing streak, you ride against them. 12 straight losses seem outrageous, and right now they have a mental hurdle that won’t go away until they somehow add one to the winning column. Waiting to add another loss to their resume is the Minnesota Wild. The Wild is having a better run than the Ducks lately, but who isn’t? Minnesota has won five of their last eight games, including a close one against the Kings (3-2) on Tuesday Night.
Here’s where it gets interesting. At home, Minnesota hasn’t been a solid bet this season. They have lost -$307 to bettors who have trusted them $100 when playing at the Xcel Energy Center. To make it better, the Ducks have won eight of their last ten visits to Minneapolis, including the previous two in a row. I get that the Ducks are pretty much overthinking the way they play and their latest results, but at some point, that losing streak will come to an end. What better place to finally get a W than on a site where they have been successful over the past a few years. I’m taking Ducks to end the drought. What’s the play? Anaheim.
