Senators vs Ducks Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Ducks to defeat the Senators while playing at home. Given the current moneyline odds at +125, I’m placing a wager on the Ducks to win outright.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Ducks winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Ducks straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
