Carolina are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games at home.

Carolina are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Anaheim.

Prediction

The Hurricanes are clearly the best team here but they have struggled to cover the spread at home, they're 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games at home and somehow the Ducks give them a lot of troubles. The Ducks have been profitable against the spread this season and have won 6 straight games against the Hurricanes on the road. Take the Ducks to cover the puck line.
