    NHL Playoff Picks Today: Western Conference Finals Game 2

    Ducks vs Predators Odds

    My Team's Next MatchAnaheim Ducks

    Anaheim definitely showed a bit of fatigue from their seven-game series with the Oilers in Game 1, as Nashville dominated the majority of play in ultimately earning the win. Game 2 has added a bit more urgency on the Ducks side of things because they don't want to fall 0-2 down like they did vs. Edmonton and be forced to win multiple games on the road once again. But another day of rest, and more importantly, a renewed focus on a new opponent, and we should see Anaheim play much better for the full 60 minutes tonight. 

    Nashville may have entered the playoffs as a #8 seed in the West, but they've been playing like a #1 for the majority of it. They swept away #1 Chicago, beat St Louis in six, and now hold a 1-0 lead on Anaheim. They've won all three Game 1's on the road, are unbeaten at home, and have many sportsbooks sweating at the idea of them winning the Cup. But despite all that, this is still a team that's under .500 on the road for the entire year, and numbers like that eventually start to become the norm again after a spectacular run like the Preds have had. 

    ANAHEIM DUCKS ML (-120) PLAY NOW

    Nashville may be the team that everyone wants a piece of their bandwagon, but tonight's Game 2 is on Anaheim will not let slip away. They already know how tough it is to battle back from an 0-2 series hole at home last round, and knowing that Nashville swept away Chicago in Round 1 after going up 2-0 on the road means the Ducks should come out with guns blazing tonight. Anaheim is on a 5-1 SU run after scoring 2 goals or fewer in their last outing, and the 15-5 SU run they are on at home against an opponent with a losing record on the road should come into play tonight.

    Remember, Anaheim was thoroughly outplayed for the bulk of Game 1, but they still were able to force OT and almost win the contest. The Ducks really turned things up in the 3rd period to get the equalizer (and attempting to take the lead) and it's that sort of intensity and energy level bettors should expect from Anaheim tonight. Oh, and Sunday games have treated the Ducks kindly all year long as they are 45-18 SU the last 63 times they've had a game on this day.

    Backing Anaheim in Game 1 may have cost a unit to our bankroll, but we got that back quickly with Ottawa +1.5 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and those of you who were brave enough to take a stab with the Sens on the ML got back even more.
