BETTING TRENDS

Minnesota are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Los Angeles.

Minnesota are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Los Angeles.

Minnesota are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against an opponent in the Western Conference conference.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Los Angeles's last 6 games.

Los Angeles are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Los Angeles's last 9 games against Minnesota.

Los Angeles are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Wild have been good so far this season winning 4 of their first 6 games and have scored 9 goals in their last 2 games but they have struggled against the Kings losing 4 of the last 5 head to head games. The Kings are on a roll and just beat one of the best teams in the league so it's hard to against them right now. With both teams playing great offense and the over cashing in 7 of the last 9 head to head games between these 2 so I expect a high scoring game. Take the over.
