The Kings are 15-38 in their last 53 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 Friday games. The Golden Knights are 19-7 in their last 26 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The under is 18-5-3 in Kings last 26 Friday games. The over is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 overall. The Kings are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Vegas Golden Knights are obviously the better team here and the Kings haven't been good on the road dating back to last season. However, the Kings have been decent the last week or so and are showing an improved spark offensively. The Kings have also won five of the last six meetings against the Golden Knights. Speaking of the Vegas Golden Knights, they haven't played in about a week and a half, so who knows what to expect after such a long layoff. We're getting a lot of plus money here with the Kings. I'll take a shot.
