Las Vegas sportsbooks make a living off of sharp predictions. Win totals, losses, even injuries. You name it, Vegas will handicap it.

And, usually, their expert predictions are scarily accurate. So, when the projected 2017-18 point totals for all NHL clubs were released by Westgate SuperBook on Tuesday, it came as a bit of a surprise that the Anaheim Ducks were pegged as the team to earn the most points.

Especially when you consider that the Ducks finished last season behind such powerhouse clubs as the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, and Chicago Blackhawks.

Regardless of who you feel should be on top, here is the complete list of projected 2017-18 points, according to Westgate SuperBook:

Team Projected 2017-18 point total
