It is the second meeting this week between the two teams as they played on Monday in Los Angeles. It is the first of a back-to-back on the NHL betting odds board for the Kings as they play at San Jose tomorrow.
NHL odds stats tell us that the Kings and Canucks had split their last 10 meetings before the game earlier this week in L.A. Surprisingly, the Kings have won three of the last four games at Vancouver as the NHL odds stats numbers show.
The Kings have held their own on the road this season versus the NHL odds. They are just below the .500 mark but considering they are getting big money nearly every night that is a big moneymaker versus the NHL betting odds. The Kings are just outside of the Top 10 in the league in defense as NHL odds numbers show. Jonathan Quick and Erik Ersberg have played very well in goal this season for Los Angeles. The problem for the Kings has been on offense where they rank in the bottom third of the league as NHL odds statistics show. Anze Kopitar has been leading the team in scoring as NHL odds numbers indicate but he has less than 60 points which tells you the Kings struggle to score.
The Canucks have an almost identical record at home and on the road. That tells us that Vancouver is overpriced at home and undervalued on the road in NHL odds. The Canucks are just outside the Top 10 in the league on offense and on defense as NHL betting odds stats indicate. Daniel Sedin has been leading the team in scoring as NHL odds numbers show, but he is not a sniper and the Canucks can struggle at times to score. Roberto Luongo is a top goaltender though and he usually makes up for the lack of scoring.
If you are looking at the total in NHL odds there are some mixed numbers. The over/under is 5-5 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. At Vancouver, though, three of the last four games have gone over the NHL betting odds.
