The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Vancouver's last 14 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Vancouver's last 13 games against Anaheim.

Prediction

Looking at the stats the Canucks seem like the right play but they're just 10-9-3 at home this season so this is practically a flip coin and they have struggled against the Ducks as they're 1-5 last 6 head to head games and 5-13 last 18 playing at home against them, so there's definitely value on the Ducks ML.
