Bet NHL Action For Thursday, March 15, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Los Angeles opened as a -240 favorite before the line came down a little. The total has remained at 5.5 goals. The Kings can be found anywhere from a -229 to a -250 favorite depending on the book, while Detroit ranges from a +209 to a +195 underdog. The total is at 5.5 everywhere.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 59 percent of bets are coming in on the Kings. Online wager info also says that 63 percent of bets are siding with the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Red Wings center Frans Nielsen (upper body) is probable to play. Los Angeles has no injuries to report.

BETTING STRATEGY

If you want to stomach all the juice, feel free to bet on the heavily favored Kings. But the more profitable bet could be taking the over here as the Red Wings haven't been able to stop anyone during their seven-game losing skid. Detroit has surrendered at least four goals in five of the last six games, so if that happens again the Red Wings would at the most have to contribute lightly to send this to an over. Los Angeles' defense has been shaky in two of its last three contests, so expect Detroit to score at least a couple goals while the hosts take care of the rest.
