San Jose is 4-10 in their last 14 games overall and 4-11 in their last 15 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road favorite. L.A. is 0-4 in their last 4 games overall and 3-7 in their last 10 games as an underdog while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 games against a team with a losing record. The under is 12-3-6 in the last 21 meetings between these two teams and 3-1-4 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams in Los Angeles.

If we’re being honest, I don’t want anything to do with either of these two teams as L.A. has cooled off since a decent start to the year while San Jose is still going to provide solid value down the road with the talent on that roster, but until we see it we have to take a wait and see approach. Instead, I’ll side with the under as these rivalry games between the Kings and Sharks tend to be more physical and lower-scoring, so I’ll back the under here.
