Los Angeles is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 16-40 in their last 56 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Arizona is 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 2-6 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games as a favorite. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

Say what you want about the Kings, I sure have, and been right and wrong quite a few times this season. But the Kings always battle teams hard whether it’s a rebuilding year or not, and I just think they’re getting some decent value against an Arizona team they just put the boots to a few nights ago. The other side of it is I’m not laying this much juice with an Arizona team that struggles to score, as good as the defense is on some nights. Last time I checked, if you don’t score, you don’t win games. I’ll take a shot with Los Angeles and the plus money in this one.
