NHL Online Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings enter tonight’s matchup sporting a weak 23-30-6 record that grants them 52 points on the season. That meager tally ranks the Kings as the worst team in the Pacific Division and gives them no hope of making the playoffs. But does Los Angeles have any hope of defeating Nashville on the road this evening? Well tonight’s NHL online betting odds aren’t giving them much of a shot. And looking over the numbers, it’s clear that you shouldn’t either. This is because Los Angeles enters tonight’s matchup with the 30th best scoring offense in the league and 16th best defense. Comparatively the Predators enter this matchup with the 13th best scoring offense and 4th best defense. If those numbers pan out this evening, the Kings are in for yet another loss.
Players to Watch: Anze Kopitar (17 G, 27 A, 44 PTS.), Dustin Brown (12 G, 21 A, 33 PTS.), and Drew Doughty (5 G, 28 A, 33 PTS.).
The Preds pounce into tonight’s matchup sporting a 35-22-5 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Central Division. With a 75 point tally on the season, the Predators are just one point shy of tying with the division leading Winnipeg Jets. Considering that they’re hosting the weak Kings this evening, Nashville should have no problems taking the division this evening. All in all the Preds are 5-1-4 in their last 10 against the Kings so this game could go either way when it comes down to it. After all, both teams are in a rut at the moment.
Players to Watch: Ryan Johansen (11 G, 42 A, 53 PTS), Roman Josi (13 G, 36 A, 49 PTS.), and Mattias Ekholm (7 G, 34 A, 41 PTS.).
