Kings vs. Blackhawks 3/14/16 NHL Picks & Predictions

The Blackhawks are in a bit of a funk but with their motivation not to start the playoffs on the road, will they come through with a victory tonight when they host the Kings?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Chicago is a -130 money line favorite to knock off visiting Los Angeles tonight at 8:00PM ET, while the Kings are +120 to pull off the upset. As for the over/under, the number currently sits at 5 goals.

The Hawks have fallen from first to third place in the Central Division while losing five of their last eight games. They were edged 3-2 in a shootout on Wednesday in St. Louis and then allowed the first four goals en route to a 5-2 loss to the Stars on Friday. That loss to Dallas dropped Chicago three points behind both the Stars and the Blues in the division.

But the Blackhawks usually respond well following a poor performance. For example, they're 22-5 in their last 27 games after allowing five goals or more in their previous game. They've also won 20 of their last 26 games following a loss of three or more goals and are 39-16 in their last 55 home games to boot.

The Kings, meanwhile, have lost four of their last five road games and are also 1-4 in their last five games against teams with a winning record. They've struggled against the Central as well, losing five of their last seven games against the division.
