The Los Angeles Kings are favored in NHL wagering online odds at Sbg global.com on Wednesday as they host the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes are one tired hockey team as they have been on the road all season. They started with two wins in Finland but they have not been a team to take lately with your NHL bet.
Brutal Road Trip - Carolina lost 3-2 last Thursday in Ottawa and they were pummeled 5-1 at Vancouver on Sunday. They were in San Jose on Tuesday night. The schedule has been brutally unfair to the Hurricanes who started in Finland and then had to play on the West Coast. The matchup against the Kings on Wednesday is the second half of a back-to-back for Carolina and it is a terrible situation for them. The Kings have had four days off since playing in Phoenix on Saturday. Somebody in the NHL front office definitely didn’t consider Carolina when they put together the early part of this season’s schedule.
Trends Favor Los Angeles – Almost everything favors the Kings in this game. They are 2-0 at home already this season. They have won the last two meetings against Carolina and the Hurricanes are simply not a good road team. They are 15-31 in their last 46 road games. They are also just 1-6 in their last 7 vs. the Pacific. The Kings are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. the Southeast Division. The home team in this series is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings and the Hurricanes are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles. Looks like a definite NHL wagering online bet on the Kings for Wednesday night.
Total – The total on this game might be worth a bet along with the Kings for Wednesday night. The Over is 5-1 in the Hurricanes last 6 road games but that is the only trend that points to a high scoring game. The Under is 4-0 in the Kings last 4 overall. The Under is 4-1-1 in the Kings last 6 vs. the Eastern Conference. The Kings are second in the league in goals against and you would figure they could shut down a very tired Carolina team in this game.
