In their last 10 games the Canadiens are 5-5-0, averaging 2.6 goals, 4.5 assists, 4.6 penalties and 11.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.5 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

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

Los Angeles are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games.

Los Angeles are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Los Angeles' last 5 games when playing on the road against Montreal.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Montreal's last 6 games.

Montreal are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Montreal's last 6 games against Los Angeles.

 

Prediction

The Kings have been struggling lately as they have lost 7 of their last 10 games and 5 of their last 7 games on the road. The Canadiens have been pretty good lately winning 4 of their last 5 games but they have struggled at home losing 5 of their last 7 games in Montreal. The Kings are allowing nearrly 4 goals per game so the Canadiens won't have any trouble to score on this game so I think the over is the play.
