ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Rangers are -140 money line favorites over the Kings, who are +129 on the ML. The total, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 5 goals with Los Angeles current owners of a two-games-to-none lead in the series.

LINE MOVEMENT: The Kings opened as +112 money line underdogs but their odds have jumped to +129, while the Rangers’ odds have gone from -121 up to -140. The total hasn’t budged since opening at 5 goals.

PUBLIC BETTING: Of the wagers that have currently been placed on this game, 77% of bettors favor the Rangers. This information is subject to change, however, so click on the link provided for the most updated public betting stats.

NHL FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest NHL trends, the home team is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams, including the Kings’ two victories in the first two games in L.A. The Rangers are also 5-1 in their last six games playing on one day of rest, 5-1 in their last six when their opponent scores five goals or more in their previous game and 7-2 in their last nine after allowing five goals or more in their previous contest. The Kings became the first team in playoff history to win three straight games in which they trailed by more than one goal when they rallied from deficits of 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2 to beat the Rangers 5-4 in double overtime in Game 2. But eventually there needs to be a market correction and if the Rangers get up by two or more goals tonight, I expect them to keep it.
