The Los Angeles Kings and Vegas Golden Knights meet Wednesday in NHL action at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Los Angeles Kings need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Los Angeles Kings are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 24.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Dustin Brown leads Los Angeles with 14 goals, Anze Kopitar has 29 assists and Jeff Carter has 98 shots on goal. Defensively, the Los Angeles Kings are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 85.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Jonathan Quick has given up 43 goals on 405 shots faced and Calvin Petersen has given up 45 goals on 582 shots.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for a win after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 19.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 18 goals, Mark Stone has 28 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 97 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 84.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up 19 goals on 202 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 49 goals on 667 shots.
The Kings are 20-48 in their last 68 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Golden Knights are 37-14 in their last 51 home games and 47-19 in their last 66 overall. The under is 6-2 in Kings last 8 overall. The over is 4-0 in Golden Knights last 4 Wednesday games. The Kings are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Kings are back to their losing ways, and they've had little to no betting value on the road or in the underdog role dating back to last season. The Vegas Golden Knights continue to pile up the victories and they're the fourth most profitable team in the sport at the moment. Vegas has also won four of the five meetings against the Kings this season and three of those victories were decided by two or more goals. I'll side with the Golden Knights and the PL for max betting value.
