Anaheim vs Winnipeg: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Anaheim Ducks did not perform well in the preseason but managed to win the last two games anyway. The Ducks played at San Jose and snatched a victory in a penalty shootout (3:2). Goaltender Gibson had a fantastic game and saved 42 out of 44 shots. The Ducks also defeated Los Angeles in a shootout.
Anaheim were at their weakest at home; they won only one game out of four at the Honda Center.
The Winnipeg Jets won just two out of six games in the preseason. At home, the Jets beat Edmonton with a score of 5:1. Forward Harkins gave an assist and scored a double. Winnipeg also defeated Calgary in regulation (3:2).
Despite losing in most preseason games, the Jets fought fiercely and put up a fight in every match.
In 2 of the last 4 head-to-head games, the teams failed to score in each period.
In 4 head-to-head games in a row, Winnipeg opened the scoring.
Winnipeg suffered a bit of bad luck in the preseason and often lost in regulation despite maintaining advantage for most of the game. Anaheim didn't look convincing at all, especially at home. We believe that the Jets have a great opportunity to end their losing streak today.
Our prediction - Winnipeg to win
The teams do not always score a lot in head-to-head games. But the Ducks show poor defensive play, so we believe that this will lead to a large number of goals scored today.
Second bet - total over 5 goals
