Today Vegas Sports Betting Tip and Prediction: Anaheim at Colorado

For a long time this season, it looked as though the Anaheim Ducks would be at the top of other team’s phone lists when it came to the trading deadline. After a furious rally to get within striking distance of a playoff spot, it might be the Ducks who are calling around on Monday prior to their road game with the Colorado Avalanche.

Anaheim is within six points of the No. 8 spot in the West and is 8-1-2 in its last 11 games. One of the teams in the way is the Avalanche, who have won three in a row.

When: 9:00 PM ET, Monday, February 27, 2012
Where: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado
TV: 9 p.m. ET, FS Prime Ticket (Ducks), Altitude (Avalanche)

The Avalanche have opened as 130-moneyline favorites on SBG Global Sportsbook’s Live NHL Hockey Odds.

Anaheim Ducks (27-25-10): Anaheim had slipped as far as 20 points out of eighth place and was 10-22-6 after a loss to the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 4. While Corey Perry and Teemu Selanne have picked up the offense, the star of late has been goaltender Jonas Hiller. The Switzerland native has made 21 consecutive starts, posting a 14-3-4 record. He has surrendered more than three goals only once during the stretch. Anaheim, though, still sits 13th in the West and last in the Pacific Division with 20 games left.

Colorado Avalanche (32-27-4): Colorado is in a stronger position than the Ducks, two points behind the eighth-place Dallas Stars. The Avalanche accomplished something Saturday that had been nearly impossible for any team in the NHL this season with a 4-3 victory at Detroit. Steve Downie recorded a goal and two assists against the Red Wings and has collected five points in three games since arriving Tuesday in a trade from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

1. Downie has two assists in four career games against the Ducks.
