Buffalo Sabres (5.5) vs. Anaheim Ducks (-132) Preview & Prediction (10/16/2019)

The Buffalo Sabres will be in Anaheim taking the ice against the Ducks at the Honda Center on Wednesday. The Sabres will be looking for a fourth consecutive win after beating the Dallas Stars 4-0 on Monday.

The Ducks will be looking for their second win in three games after losing 4-2 in Boston to the Bruins their last time on the ice. Anaheim has struggled to put the puck in the net their last three games and will be looking to get things back on track Wednesday.

The Sabres were able to make light work of Dallas with a 4-0 win on Monday. Buffalo was outshot 22-25 in the game and only won 21 of 49 faceoffs. They scored a goal on one of their two power-play opportunities while keeping Dallas out of the net both times Buffalo skated a man down. The Sabres had eight blocked shots and two takeaways in the game.

On the season, Buffalo has been able to score an average of four goals per game while giving up just 2.17. They have managed to fire 31.3 shots per night while giving up the same number to their opposition. They have nine power-play goals on the year with a 42.9 conversion rate to go along with a 76.5 penalty kill percentage.

The Anaheim Ducks will be looking to regroup after suffering a 4-2 loss in Boston to the Bruins on Monday. The Ducks managed to outshoot Boston 23-32 with both teams winning 29 faceoffs. Anaheim was given four power-play opportunities in the game but failed to score on any of them. They gave Boston two goals on three of their power-play opportunities. The Ducks had 10 blocked shots and nine takeaways in the game.

Anaheim has been able to score an average of 2.17 goals per game while holding opponents to just 1.67. They have put up 29.7 shots a night while allowing 29.8. They have yet to find the goal on a power-play this year and have an 84.2 penalty kill percentage.

I’m really looking forward to watching how the Ducks skate on defense against the Sabre’s offense. Anaheim gave up four goals to the Bruins on Boston’s ice. I think playing at home will be the boost Anaheim needs to win at home in this one.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (NBA,NHL & MLB)
C.O.W. = (Chances of Winning) – The ‘C.O.W.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record using their short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF WINNING’ percentage for their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.

C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.

DMVI = (Daily Market Value Index) – The DMVI is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the DMVI, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams. The DMVI is a tool to find value vs. the current line.

VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 7-game cycle.

  • BULLISH = Team is either (7-0, 6-1, or 5-2) in their last 7 games.
  • NEUTRAL = Team is either (3-4 or 4-3) in their last 7 games.
  • BEARISH = Team is either (0-7, 1-6 or 2-5) in their last 7 games.

L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
