NHL PLAYOFFS REE PICK: Take the over. There’s absolutely zero value in taking the Kings, even if they win. If you wager Los Angles and the Kings win, great, but you’re looking at a small profit. Instead, let’s look at the total. Seeing as how they’re up three games to none, the Kings should play lose at home today. Jonathan Quick has been fantastic as usual but he might be willing to let his guard down a little as well. The point is, we might see a back-and-forth goalfest today with the Coyotes needing to ramp things up and the Kings playing loose. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 6-1-2 in the last nine meetings between these two teams in Los Angeles but sometimes trends are meant to be bucked. Go with the over.
