Is the betting value on the Kings?
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Who holds the value for bettors when the Ducks take on the Kings tonight in Game 7? Let’s take a look.
The LA Kings face off against the Anaheim Ducks in a Game 7 showdown set to take place at Honda Center in Anaheim, California at 9PM ET. NBC Sports will provide the coverage for this one. Let's take a look at the winning side and total.
The value in this one lies with the Kings as they are listed as the dog here. The Kings are the more rounded team in this matchup and have outplayed the Ducks in a lot of ways throughout this series. Simply put, the Kings have given themselves more scoring opportunities then the Ducks, as they have outshot Anaheim in 9 of the last 10 meetings, with over 20 more scoring chances in this series.
The sharp money is sitting with the Kings as LA is paying out less and less as public money is coming in on the Ducks. You also have to like the Under 5. The total has gone over 5 only once in this series, and with the increased intensity of a Game 7, you would have to think less scoring opportunities would present themselves. The public is sitting heavy on the Under right now, and that's the right play this time.
Good luck, wager responsibly, and enjoy the game.
