Kings vs Blues Betting Prediction

St. Louis comes into this matchup after snapping their losing streak with a win over the Bruins in their last game, and they are 18-11-1 on home ice. The Kings have alternated wins and losses over their last five games, but they are 19-9-4 on the road. These two teams have played twice already this year, with LA winning 5-1 and St. Louis winning 4-3 in overtime, with both home teams winning. This is an interesting situation because Los Angeles is coming off of a long home stand, while St. Louis is coming back from a long road trip. I don’t love going against the Kings on the road, but St. Louis has been very good at home and should have momentum after that win against the Bruins. Take the Blues here.
