Ducks and Terry Clicking
The Ducks have started off this 2021/22 season in really good form, winning 9 of their last 10 games in the league. Their one loss came last time out in a 2-1 defeat to Carolina. Troy Terry has blown up big time for the Anaheim Ducks, last season in 48 games played he managed to pick up a total of 20 points, compared to this year alone he has played in just 17 games and has seen 22 points scored for the Ducks, scoring 12 goals and 10 assists.
Anaheim has seen an average of 3.39 goals per game, which is the 6th most in the NHL, compared to last season when they only averaged 2.5 goals per game, which was the 4th lowest in the league. They seemed to have adopted a much more attacking style of play this season.
Nashville Keeping Head Above Water
The Predators are sitting in the final playoff spot in the Central division, they are two points ahead of Colorado Avalanche who are right behind them in 5th, considering the Avalanche were tipped as one of the preseason favorites, the Predators (and all the teams above them) will know the Avs are eyeing up one of their places.
Nashville have had two endure two losses in a row to Canadian teams, they lost 3-0 to the Leafs and last time out despite Matt Duchene scoring a hat trick in the final period, it wasn’t enough as they lost 6-3 to the Montreal Canadians. The Predators have had the 13th best defensive record, allowing 2.82 goals per game and offensively they have scored 2.70 goals per game.

Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators Betting Prediction
Both these sides are looking for a bounce-back win having lost last time out, and honestly, the number on the Ducks to win at +130 looks really good value in our eyes. They have been playing some strong hockey this season, the one slight concern is the fact they have only won 3 of their 7 away games this season and only 1 of those 7 in regulation.
We are targeting the over 5.5 goals here at +100, although all the trends lean towards an under game here, we think with this Anaheim offense and Predators looking to get their offense going, we will see this game go over the total at plus money.
