Predators & Kings Have a Habit of Going UNDER Totals

The Nashville Predators have taken a major turn for the worse of late and will be looking to right the ship against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

MyBookie opened the Predators as +106 road underdogs with a total of 5.5.

  • The Predators are 2-5 in the last seven meetings with the Kings.
  • The Kings are 5-1 SU in their last six home games.
  • The Predators are 1-4 in their last five road games.

Recently, Nashville was riding a 16-2-2 SU stretch but proceeded to drop six of its last eight heading into tonight’s contest. The Preds let a third period lead go by the wayside in a 3-2 overtime loss to Arizona in their last time out, which only furthered frustrations in the Music City.

L.A. is in the same boat, as the Kings answered a season-high eight-game winning streak with losses in six of their last 10. Tanner Pearson scored two goals and set up another in Thursday’s 4-3 loss to Calgary and had an assist in the Kings’ 4-3 overtime setback to the Predators in the last meeting between the clubs on November 4. Los Angeles will have a week off after playing tonight.

UNDER bettors have been laughing all the way to the bank when these teams collide, evidenced by the UNDER going 4-1 in the last five clashes between the squads.
