The Kings are 20-46 in their last 66 road games and 4-9 in their last 13 overall. The Sharks are 4-11 in their last 15 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Kings last 6 overall. The under is 6-2-1 in Sharks last 9 overall. The Kings are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 13-4-6 in the last 23 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, but you'd have to give the Sharks the edge if forced to pick this contest. The Sharks are at home and have won two of the three meetings this season against the Kings, including a victory on Monday. The Los Angeles Kings have had little to no success on the road or in the underdog role this season. The Sharks have also won four straight games as a favorite. I'll lay the cheap price with the Sharks at home.
