Ducks Coyotes Betting Tips – Coyotes Look To Ground Red-Hot Ducks Saturday

Posted by Don Melrose on 2/27/2013 5:43:34 PM

The Anaheim Ducks are off to one of their best starts in franchise history. Maintaining that momentum and carrying it through the lockout-shortened season will be key as they look to turn things around on the west coast. Next up for the Ducks is a Phoenix Coyotes’ team that sits in eighth place in the Western Conference, in the midst of seven teams separated by just two points. There isn’t much room for error in an online sports betting year where every point will be so important, and the Coyotes could have trouble grounding the Ducks.

Phoenix has been excellent at home this season with a 6-3-1 record. The problem is that the Ducks have been even better on the road, where they are 7-2-1. That means the Coyotes will need to get on Anaheim early and keep them from taking an early lead, and the key could be slowing down a suddenly potent attack.

Known for their strong defensive play down the stretch last sports betting season, the Ducks have shot to third in the NHL in goals per game this year with Ryan Getzlaf leading the way. Getzlaf has a team-high six goals and 18 points early on, and is a big reason why the fourth-ranked powerplay is clicking the way that it has. Saku Koivu and Teemu Selanne have been excellent early on, and that secondary scoring has been key. 30-year old rookie netminder Viktor Fasth has been outstanding since coming over from the Swedish Elite League, and is 8-1-0 with a 2.01 goals against average, and could get the start ahead of Jonas Hiller.

The Coyotes certainly could use those goaltending numbers from Mike Smith, who is 7-5-2 with a 2.63 goals against average this season. Smith has struggled mightily at times, and it has left Phoenix vulnerable at times. Mikel Boedker has led Phoenix with 13 points and continues to show improvement in his game at both ends of the ice, but the Coyotes need to find more balance in their scoring attack. Phoenix ranks right around the league average in both goals scored and goals against, and that is why they are where they are in terms of the online betting standings.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While they struggled in their loss to the Kings, the Ducks have been excellent this season and will look to bounce back in a hurry. Anaheim has been a much better team at both ends of the ice and as a result have climbed to fire in the conference, so don’t expect them not to come out flying against a Phoenix team that has been very average, and could be vulnerable if the Ducks get to Smith early.
