Kings Cashing OVER Tickets With Ease

Anze Kopitar Kings Mats Zuccarello Rangers NHL

The Los Angeles Kings have epitomized inconsistency since returning from the All-Star break and will look to rebound from a bad loss on Thursday when they visit the New York Rangers tonight.

Shark Bites
  • The Kings have gone 6-2 in the last eight meetings with the Rangers.
  • OVER is 6-2-2 in the Rangers’ last 10 home games.
  • The Kings are 7-1 in their last eight games playing with no days off between games.

The Kings Have gone 2-2 since returning from the break and after destroying the Boston Bruins 9-2 Tuesday night, they lost to the New York Islanders by a 5-2 score Thursday. The Kings need to be careful in the Pacific Division as their lead has dwindled to six points over the San Jose Sharks and seven points over the Anaheim Ducks.

One thing is certain when it comes to betting Kings games, however; OVER bettors are having a field day. OVER has hit in five-straight games thanks to an average of 7.8 goals scored in each contest.

The Rangers could prove to be a tough opponent, however, as they’ve won four-straight games heading into Friday’s meeting and are coming off a 3-0 shutout of the Pittsburgh Penguins in their last effort.

The Blueshirts, and more specifically Henrik Lundqvist, have allowed just five goals during their winning streak with the Swedish netminder sporting a .940 save percentage in five February starts. Early reports indicate that backup goalie Antti Raanta could be the one starting in the blue ice Friday.

A 3.3-2.2 result in favor of the Rangers is the prediction by the Odds Shark handicapping pick engine. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NHL matchups here.
