The San Jose Sharks will visit to Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. This is the fourth time these teams face off this season, the Sharks have dominated the Kings all season and are 3-0 against them.
SAN JOSE SHARKS
The Sharks have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 12-16 on the road so far this season. They have 26-25-8 overall record ranking 7th in the Pacific Division.
Timo Meier has 58 total points while scoring 25 goals and totaling 33 assists for the Sharks. Brent Burns has seven assists over the last 10 games for San Jose.
The Sharks are 4-6 in their last 10 games averaging 2.4 goals, 4.2 assists, 4.3 penalties and 10.7 penalty minutes while allowing three goals per game with a .915 save percentage.
LOS ANGELES KINGS
The Kings have lost 3 of their last 4 games and are 15-16 at home this season ranking 2nd in the Pacific. They're coming from a 0-3 lost against the Avalanche last Tuesday.
Adrian Kempe leads the Kings with 25 goals, adding 11 assists and totaling 36 points. Trevor Moore has three goals and five assists over the last 10 games for Los Angeles.
In their last 10 games the Kings are 5-5, averaging 2.3 goals, 3.1 assists, 3.4 penalties and 7.1 penalty minutes while giving up 3.2 goals per game with an .893 save percentage.
San Jose are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of San Jose's last 8 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Los Angeles' last 6 games.
Los Angeles are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games at home.
I don't know what happen to the Kings when they play against the Sharks but they have been dominated by them. They have lost all of the 3 head to head games this season and lost the last one 5-0. I'm not sure if we're going to see the same on this game but the line is tricky, so I think the best way to go is the under. The Under is cashing big time for both teams lately.
PICK: Under 5.5 (-115)
