NHL Odds: Ducks – Bruins in Battle of Overvalued Teams
The Ducks will test their luck Thursday night against the Boston Bruins, who need to go find some four-leaf clovers if they’re going to clinch a playoff spot in the East.
They say it’s better to be lucky than good. The Anaheim Ducks have enjoyed some of both. The Ducks are in first place in the Western Conference at 46-21-2-5. That includes a ridiculously fortunate 29-1-2-5 record in games decided by one goal.

At 36-25-3-9, the Bruins are clinging to the last Wild Card spot in their conference after losing five in a row. Their 28-45 record against the puck line is well below break-even at minus-11.50 units in earnings. That’s nothing compared to the Ducks at 27-47 ATS record and minus-27.57 units.
Only the last-place Arizona Coyotes (33-40 ATS, minus-30.78 units) have lost more money this year.
To emphasize how overvalued Anaheim is, Hockey Reference has the Ducks at plus-0.14 on the Simple Rating System. That leaves them seventh overall in the West. Boston’s plus-0.02 SRS translates to ninth place in the East. Game time for this matchup at the Garden is 7:00 PM ET on the NHL Network.
