The 2018 NHL online betting season continues this evening with a late night Winnipeg Jets vs. Los Angeles Kings matchup. The Jets are off to a pretty good start this season and are looking to build a cushion atop the Central Division. The Kings on the other hand, have had a pretty awful start to the season and are hoping to salvage this sinking ship as soon as possible. Will they be able to get a rebound this evening? Let’s check on the NHL sportsbook betting odds to find out.

NHL Online Betting Odds:
The Jets fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 22-9-2 record that yields them 46 points for the season. That 46 point tally ranks Winnipeg as the No. 1 team in the Central Division. Nevertheless, the Nashville Predators are right up there with them as they also have 46 points on the season. Entering tonight’s contest riding a 5 game winning streak, the Jets are more than ready to take care of the weaker Kings. All in all Winnipeg is 6-3-1 in their last 10 games against the Kings, which should make them a heavy favorite this evening. On top of that, the Jets rank 3rd in scoring and No. 1 overall in power play percentage. On the other hand, the Kings rank 31st in scoring, 19th in goals allowed and 28th in power play. It looks like they’re in for a long night.
Players to Watch: Mark Scheifele (21 G, 25 A, 46 PTS.), Blake Wheeler (5 G, 39 A, 44 PTS.), and Patrik Laine (23 G, 7 A, 30 PTS.).
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings fly into this Tuesday night contest sporting a 11-20-3 record that nets them 25 points on the season. Unsurprisingly, that 25 point tally just happens to peg them as the worst team in the Pacific Division. However, there’s still plenty of time left in the season for a turnaround. Granted the Kings would need a pretty severe one to save the season. But from what we’ve seen out of Los Angeles this season, there’s no real reason to expect a turnaround. Instead you should expect them to get blown out by Winnipeg tonight.
Players to Watch: Anze Kopitar (8 G, 13 A, 21 PTS.), Drew Doughty (2 G, 16 A, 18 PTS.), and Dustin Brown (9 G, 8 A, 17 PTS.).
