The Avalanche are 14-4 in their last 18 road games and 18-38 in their last 56 Tuesday games. The Kings are 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 7-2 in their last 9 overall. The over is 10-2 in Avalanche last 12 overall. The under is 7-3-1 in Kings last 11 overall. The Avalanche are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings.

The Colorado Avalanche are the better team here, are playing the better hockey and have had nothing but road success dating back to last season. The Los Angeles Kings aren't the most talented team in the world and still have goalie issues based on what we've seen from two games. However, the Kings have had a bunch of success against the Avalanche over the years, and they took the Wild to overtime in back-to-back games. The Kings are a bit intriguing at home with the plus money, despite their defensive issues. Give me the underdog.
