Money Line Pick
Two struggling squads will meet up on Saturday night. The Kings may have topped Arizona in overtime on Thursday, but Los Angeles was previously riding a stretch where they were 1-7-1. That run has dropped the Kings home record to an ordinary 11-11-1 overall, and they’re 11-12 against the spread when playing in Los Angeles. If there’s any optimism, its the Kings 5-3-1 as favorites (we know, that sounds weird to say), and they’ve split the previous two matchups against Anaheim.
Over Under Pick
Speaking of, things aren’t going much better for the Ducks right now. While Anaheim is 3-2 over their last five, that doesn’t erase the fact that they’ve only won six games since December 21st. The Ducks have been absolutely awful on the road this season (8-16-2), they can’t win as underdogs (12-22-2), and it’s a tossup whether they’ll cover on the road (13-13 against the spread away from Anaheim).
