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 Thursday when they visit the New York Rangers Friday evening.

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 on zero days rest.

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 permitted 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.

Wildcats Incapable of Covering Vs Bruins

After a rocky start to their Pac-12 schedule, the Arizona Wildcats will look to climb within half a game of first in the conference when they host the UCLA Bruins Friday. If history is any indication, Arizona may be fade worthy as they are just 1-7 ATS in their past eight games against UCLA.

The line opened at Arizona -11 and if that holds true at tip-off, it will be the 13th time this season the Wildcats have closed as double-digit favorites. Arizona has gone 9-4 ATS when favored by double-digits this season while averaging 89.5 points in those games. Ryan Anderson has been unstoppable for the Wildcats recently as the senior has recorded a double-double in each of the past four games while averaging 22 points and 12.3 rebounds.

If UCLA wants to get off the bubble and ensure themselves an at-large bid, they will need to pick up their road play within the conference. The Bruins are just 1-4 SU and ATS on the road against other Pac-12 teams this season while scoring a measly 75.4 points. Isaac Hamilton’s consistency has been a bright spot of UCLA has the junior has scored double-digit points in 19 consecutive games.

Arizona State An OVER Bettors Dream

The Arizona State Wildcats have been one of the best OVER plays in the nation this season, eclipsing the closing total in 65 percent of their games. The OVER has hit in eight of the Sun Devils past nine contests with the score averaging a combined 155.3 points per game in that span. Arizona State will look to continue to cash out when they host the ranked USC Trojans Friday.

Despite being a strong total play, Arizona State has been inconsistent otherwise as they are 3-8 SU and 4-6-1 ATS in their past 11 games. As a team, Arizona State has the third-worst shooting percentage in the Pac-12 and are just eighth in conference scoring. 

When USC and Arizona State met earlier this season, the Trojans held the Sun Devils to just 38.2 percent from the floor and an abysmal 28 percent from beyond the arc. After hitting a mini slump offensively, Katin Reinhardt has been cooking for USC with the junior tallying double-digit points in each of his past four outings.

Pelicans-Thunder Trending OVER

Anthony Davis Kevin Durant

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the hottest teams in the NBA and can cap off a pre-All-Star break run that will give them 16 wins in 19 games if they can topple the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday. Both squads are trending OVER in this one, as the Pels have gone OVER in 11 of their past 14 games while the Thunder are 7-2 OVER/UNDER in their previous nine.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 3-1 ATS in their last four games when favored by 11.5 points or more.
  • The Pelicans are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games with no days off between games.
  • The Pelicans are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Thunder.

The Pelicans have played historically poor against the Thunder in recent matchups, dropping 16 of their last 21 contests with their Western Conference foes. Every game is going to be important from now on for New Orleans due to its ferocious playoff chase with the Utah Jazz for the eighth and final playoff spot. The Pels are coming off back-to-back wins over Minnesota and Utah to improve its positioning heading into the All-Star break.

Thunder superstar forward Kevin Durant is unsurprisingly red-hot, entering tonight’s game by scoring 20 or more points in 38 consecutive tilts. KD is averaging 36.3 points over his last three games.

Oregon Has Been Money in Pac-12 Play

The Pac-12 is full of quality teams this season, with eight teams tallying at least 14 wins thus far, but the Oregon Ducks have been dominating as they have gone 6-0 SU and ATS in their past six within the conference. Those six games have seen the Ducks sport an average scoring margin of +11.5 points. The Ducks are facing another tough task Thursday when they host the 15-8 Cal Golden Bears.

Oregon’s offense has been blazing during their six game winning streak as they have averaged 83.5 points while shooting 48.1 percent from the floor. Dillon Brooks has been leading the charge with the sophomore averaging 20.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game during the past six games.

Cal enters the game as losers of two of their past three outings with their offense failing to top 64 points in those losses. Jaylen Brown has been the lone bright spot offensively as the freshman has averaged 21.3 points in the past three contests.

Wizards are Hammering Bucks Recently

John Wall Greg Monroe

The Washington Wizards have played a lot of forgettable basketball in the first half of the NBA campaign but will be looking to enter the All-Star break on a winning note by picking up a victory against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. The Wiz have traditionally enjoyed plenty of success against the Bucks, claiming seven of their last eight against the Eastern Conference cellar dwellers.

Shark Bites
  • The Wizards are 0-4 SU in their last four games after a win.
  • The Bucks are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games after consecutive ATS wins.
  • The Wizards are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games when underdog of 1.5 or less.

The Wizards have also triumphed in their first three matchups with the Bucks this season. Milwaukee has been significantly better at home, going a solid 14-8 SU at BMO Harris Bradley Center compared to an ugly 7-24 SU mark on the road.

OVER bettors love seeing the Wiz on the road, and for good reason. In Washington’s last 15 games away from D.C., the OVER has cashed 12 times. The OVER is also 5-0 in Milwaukee’s last five at home.

Battle at the Bottom as Oilers Host Leafs

Connor McDavid Edmonton Oilers NHL

The post-Dion Phaneuf era started with a 4-3 loss at the Calgary Flames Tuesday night, but the Toronto Maple Leafs get another shot at victory in Alberta when they visit Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Maple Leafs are 7-1 SU in their last eight games versus the Oilers.
  • The Oilers are 6-0 SU in their last six games as favorites.
  • The Maple Leafs are 0-4 SU in their last four games versus the Western Conference.

A look across the NHL standings shows that Canadian clubs haven’t fared so well this season and the Leafs and Oilers are the worst of the lot. Both teams have a league-worst 47 points with the Leafs in the basement of the Atlantic Division and the Oilers in the cellar of the Pacific.

The Oilers, who are currently -135 in moneyline markets at online shop Bovada, head into the contest on a three-game losing skid but were a lock for OVER bettors prior to a 2-1 loss at the New Jersey Devils in their last game. The OVER had gone 6-1-1 in eight games prior to that game in New Jersey with an average of seven goals being scored per game over that stretch.

The Leafs enjoyed a modest two-game winning streak immediately after the All-Star break, but followed that up with a 6-1 loss at the Ottawa Senators and then the loss at Calgary. The Buds have now lost 11 of their last 14 games, but did record a 3-0 victory over the Oilers when they visited the Air Canada Centre back in November.

It’s tough to cap a contest featuring two teams toiling at the bottom of the league and seemingly content competing in a race for the No. 1 draft pick, but with two of the poorest defenses in the league on display Thursday night, there could be value for OVER bettors.

Reeling Wild in Tough Versus Capitals

Devan Dubnyk Minnesota Wild NHL

Things just seem to be going from bad to worse for the Minnesota Wild, who take a season-long losing streak into Thursday’s meeting with the best team in the NHL.

Shark Bites
  • The Capitals are 1-7 SU in their last eight games versus the Wild in Minnesota.
  • UNDER has cashed in 12 of the past 16 contests between the Capitals and Wild.
  • The Capitals are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games with one day off in between games.

Online shop Bovada is currently offering the Capitals at -135 on the road while the Wild are presently +115. In totals markets, OVER 5 goals is presently -115 while the UNDER is -105.

The Wild are currently mired in a six-game losing streak and have lost 11 of their last 12 contests overall – a drought that has plummeted them to sixth in the Central Division. Defending has been a glaring issue for the Wild during their current funk as they’ve allowed at least four goals in five of those six losses. They allowed four goals in an overtime loss to the Dallas Stars in their last effort Tuesday night.

The Capitals came out of the All-Star Break with a rare loss (5-2 versus the Florida Panthers) but have rattled off four-straight wins since. They defeated the Nashville Predators by a score of 5-3 their last time out, thanks to Marcus Johansson tallying one goal and two assists.

According to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, the Wild will look to Devan Dubnyk between the pipes tonight. Dubnyk has lost his last nine starts and owns a horrific .855 save percentage in three February starts.
