Kings trying to bust out of slump vs Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks will walk the red carpet at Staples Center to face the Kings tonight and it hasn’t been glitz and glam for the Canucks recently. Vancouver is 2-5 SU in its last seven and will face a Kings team looking to break out of a slump after losing three in a row at home. Los Angeles opened as a -180 favorite.

  • Vancouver is 4-1 ATS in its last five games against Los Angeles.
  • Los Angeles is 2-4 ATS in its last six games at home.
  • Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick ranks third in the NHL in save percentage (.933)

The Kings can take solace in the fact that their last three losses at home were all to potential playoff teams (Tampa, Nashville and San Jose). Although Los Angeles has taken some lumps, they’re still ranked second in goals allowed this season (2.41 goals per game) and roster one of the best goaltenders in the world in Jonathan Quick. The Kings moneyline doesn’t offer great value but if bettors want to back the Kings, take their -1.5 puckline which opened at +155.

The Canucks have almost wrapped up their four-game road trip and will look to end on a high note after dropping back-to-back games to Anaheim and San Jose. Vancouver has been awful on the power play this season, only converting 10 goals on the man advantage in 17 games, and is last in the NHL in power-play conversion since the start of the 2015-16 season. The only good news in this matchup for Canucks betters is they’ve beaten the Kings two of the last three times they played.

The total opened at 5.5 in this matchup and the trends are pointing toward an OVER. The total has gone OVER in five of the Kings’ last six games and in four of their last five at home. Don’t overthink this one — take the OVER.
