Stanley Cup Final: Kings aim for sweep
The Los Angeles Kings will be looking to sweep the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday night as those teams hit the ice in NHL betting action at the sportsbooks.
Los Angeles took a commanding 3-0 lead on New York in the Stanley Cup final on Monday night with a 3-0 road victory at Madison Square Garden as underdogs on the NHL odds. That was the first UNDER result in the first three games of the final.
For diehard Rangers fans, the deficit is huge by not impossible. Although Bet365 has the Kings at -3500 and the Rangers at +1500 to complete the comeback. The bet costs a little less on the Kings at Bovada where it was -2500, but the comeback pays a little less as well at +1200.
