Best NHL Bets Today March 15

Tonight's sleight of NHL games are not going to be incredible to watch or potentially make a huge fuss over, at least at first. They are going to be two games that have the potential to be huge blowouts, which might not provide much value in sports gambling with the exception of player props. The better the performance in some of these blowout wins for some teams, the better the reward for casual fans and bettors through DraftKings.

Anaheim Ducks vs. Winnipeg Jets

My Pick: Puck Line - Jets (-135)

Tonight’s first game between the Anaheim Ducks (23-40-3) visiting the Winnipeg Jets (41-19-5) isn’t expected to draw in big viewing numbers. This matchup the Ducks and the Jets are projected to be one of the most lop-sided matchups this week. The Jets are coming in as serious favorites as they’re serious contenders for a Stanley Cup final appearance while the Ducks are in serious rebuild mode.

The Jets and Ducks have faced each other two previous times of season with both being two-point wins for Winnipeg. The first match-up was 4-2 when on the road on December 10 while the other was a 3-1 win on the road on January 5.

Winnipeg is currently in one of the most difficult stretches of the season as they have won three of the last six games. They do have significant losses to the Seattle Kraken by one point, Nashville Predators by two points, and to the Vancouver Canucks with a 5-0 score.

The Jets’ bad luck streak is nothing compared to the terrible season that the Ducks are currently experiencing. Anaheim is currently on a four-game losing streak with its closest loss being to the Minnesota Wild with a 2-0 score. In the three previous losses, the Ducks have lost on average by a total of 4.6 points.

The Ducks are coming into this game with one of the worst units in the league on both sides of the ice. Offensively, the Ducks are averaging 2.58 goals per game (30th in the league) while their defense is allowing an average of 3.62 goals per game (31st in the league). There isn’t much faith for Anaheim to make a game out of Friday’s matchup versus the elite-tier team of the Jets.
