Vegas is 10-3 in their last 13 games as a road favorite and 51-23 in their last 74 games overall while the under is 15-7-1 in their last 23 road games. Los Angeles is 3-8 in their last 11 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall. Vegas is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I think this is an interesting matchup considering the two sides have traded wins back and forth in each of the last five meetings. With that said, I think this game follows the last two meetings and is higher scoring than you’d expect between these two. I’ll back the over as I could see a game that hits at least six or maybe even seven goals.
