Bet on Ducks vs. Kings

Los Angeles has won three of the last four meetings with the Ducks, including both meetings this season. Each of the two games this year have went to OT or a shootout. The Ducks play the Kings tough, but it’s clear the Kings have the better offense and the better netminder. The puck can bounce funny ways, but more often than not it’s going to bounce L.A.’s way at home against Anaheim. The public betting for tonight is backing the Kings as well.
