The Kings are 21-48 in their last 69 road games and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The Sharks are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 8-3 in Kings last 11 overall. The over is 4-0 in Sharks last 4 home games. The Kings are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in San Jose and 8-20 in the last 28 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Los Angeles Kings have been horrible on the road dating back to last season and they're not finishing games this year, leaving a lot of points on the table. The San Jose Sharks are playing their best hockey of the season right now and have won five of the six meetings against the Kings this season. The Sharks have outscored the Kings 10-4 in the last three meetings alone. You can argue this line should be a lot more expensive. Give me the Sharks and the reasonable price at home.
