Kings Sharks: NHL Outdoor Game Trends

The designated road team has gone 10-4 on the NHL betting lines at the sportsbooks in the league's first 14 outdoor games, and the Los Angeles Kings will be looking for that trend to continue when they face the San Jose Sharks at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Saturday night.

The Kings have played in one NHL outdoor game in the past, losing 3-0 as the home team to the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium last January. Los Angeles was the -112 favorite on the NHL moneyline in that matchup, which turned out to be an UNDER result for totals bettors.

In the outdoor game at Washington's Nationals Park back on New Year's Day the home side managed to pull out the victory as the Capitals topped the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 as a +138 underdog on the NHL odds in an UNDER result. In the 14 outdoor games to date there have been eight UNDER results, five OVER results, and one PUSH.

The Kings and Sharks, who are battling for a Wild Card berth in the Western Conference, have met three times so far this season with San Jose going 2-1 in those games. The Sharks beat the Kings 4-0 on the road on October 8 and 4-2 at home on January 21; the Kings topped the Sharks 3-1 at home on December 27.

Overall the teams have split their last 10 meetings 5-5 dating back to last year's playoffs, although Los Angeles is 5-2 in their last seven matchups. Totals bettors have watched the OVER pay out just twice in the last six games between the Sharks and the Kings.

Here are the betting results from the National Hockey League's previous outdoor games . . .
