Let’s take a look at some betting trends for this match-up. Boston is 3-6 SU in its last 9 games when playing Los Angeles. Boston has the fewest power play chances in the league with just 2.5 per game. Los Angeles is 10-3 SU in its last 13 games at home.
When looking over tonight’s match-ups this game struck me as the best possible play at a decent price. We’re looking at the Los Angeles Kings in this spot for a few reason. First off, Boston played a night ago against the Anaheim Ducks. So the reality is that the Bruins may not have as much in the tank as the Kings do. Secondly, the Kings have been very solid at home this season. They did lose 4-1 to the Blackhawks at home a few nights ago but that was due to their slow 1st period start. The Kings have played 14 games at home this season winning 10 of them. You have to consider their home record when picking this game. It’s clear that the Kings get it done most of the time at home. The Bruins continue to be without center David Krejci and Zdeno Chara, who didn’t make the trip. Those are key players to have when playing on the road and the Bruins don’t have them. I believe the Kings wear them down and take the Bruins out in the third period. Best of Luck!!!
