Dallas Stars vs Los Angeles Kings 01/09/2020 – The Dallas Stars will begin a four-game road trip on Wednesday when they visit the Kings inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Stars are currently on a four-game winning stretch as they are looking to pounce on the momentum to roll past the Kings in the highly anticipated face-off.
Coming off a five-day break, the Stars, however, would need to avert rust to trip the home team. The team is holding a winning record of 24-14-4 which is good for the third spot in the Central Division as compared to a rather lowly Kings’ register of 17-23-4, dead last in the Pacific.

Dallas Stars vs Los Angeles Kings 01/09/2020 Betting Odds:
John Klingberg and Roman Polak are both listed as doubtful for Dallas Stars in this match. Klingberg is nursing a lower-body injury while Polak was listed with an illness as both players failed to report for practice on Tuesday. Klingberg had five assists over the last three games before sitting out in the game against the Red Wings. Tyler Seguin will try to get out of a two-game slump against the Kings. He aims to regain his touch as he remains to be the team leader in assists and points with 21 and 32.
Players to watch:
Tyler Seguin (GP 42, G 11, A 21, PTS 32), Roope Hintz (GP 35, G 14, A 7, PTS 21), Alexander Radulov (GP 39, G 12, A 15, PTS 27).
Los Angeles Kings
Over the last 10 games, team captain Anze Kopitar chalked up nine points behind four goals and five assists as he solidified his place as the team’s in all three offensive categories. His assist that led to Iafallo’s goal on Monday improved his career assist total to 599. It went down the drain, though, as the Kings lost to Columbus, 4-2. Goalie Jonathan Quick will play a huge factor in this game as he holds a 17-11-3 record with two shutouts in 31 career appearances (30 starts) versus Dallas.
Players to watch: Anze Kopitar (GP 44 , G 15, A 23, PTS 38), Drew Doughty (GP 44, G 6, A 20, PTS 26), Jeff Carter (GP 44, G 12, A 8, PTS 20).
Dallas Stars vs Los Angeles Kings Betting Predictions
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Dallas’ last 7 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Los Angeles’ last 8 games.
Stars vs Kings Betting Picks
Dallas will boast a 7-2-2 record against Pacific Division adversaries. Being the cellar-dwellers of the Division does not help the cause of the Kings in facing a stacked Stars squad who have been rolling over their last assignments. This will be a walk in the park for Dallas as they are expected to impose their will as visitors in Los Angeles.
Score Prediction: Los Angeles Kings 2, Dallas Stars 4.
