These two rivals meet on a regular basis and most of the recent success in terms of hockey betting odds has gone to Phoenix. Hockey odds history shows that the Coyotes have won 7 of the last 10 games against Los Angeles. Earlier this month the Coyotes won 4-2 at home as hockey odds history shows. Hockey odds statistics show that at Los Angeles, the Phoenix Coyotes have won three of the last five meetings.
Phoenix has been a solid home team in hockey odds this season but has been inconsistent on the road. Overall, the Coyotes have been right in the middle of the pack as hockey odds stats show on both offense and defense. That explains their record which is right around the .500 mark as hockey betting odds show.
The Kings have very similar stats to Phoenix as hockey odds numbers indicate. Los Angeles is a bit better defensively but that has not translated into a much better record than Phoenix.
Hockey odds numbers show that Phoenix is led on offense by Shane Doan. Hockey betting odds tell us that the goaltending is shared by Ilya Bryzgalov and Mikael Tellqvist. Phoenix seems to score goals in spurts which can sometimes put the pressure on their goalies.
Los Angeles has been led in scoring for much of the season by Anze Kopitar while Erik Ersberg has been their star in goal for much of the season. The Kings have struggled many times scoring goal and it has been Ersberg that has stolen a few games for them.
The hockey odds total on this game is interesting. Four of the past six games have gone over the hockey odds but early last season four straight meetings went under. At Los Angeles, four of the past five meetings between the two teams have gone under the hockey betting odds.
