Game 4: San Jose Sharks vs. LA Kings NHL Gambling Prediction & Lines

Sharks vs Kings Hockey Betting?

It is hard to fathom that the Los Angeles Kings face getting swept in the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs but that is where we sit heading into Game 4 against the Sharks Thursday night. It isn`t a fluke either – the Sharks are simply the better team right now – although the Kings played their best game of the series in Game 3.

It`s do or die time for the 2012 Cup Champs Thursday night!

It`s absolutely no secret as to why the San Jose Sharks are up 3-0 in the series – they are scoring goals and making Jonathan Quick look absolutely ordinary. The Sharks have pumped 17 goals by Quick in the first three games of the series – Quick has a .852 save percentage so far in the series – who would have ever seen that coming?

The Sharks are coming with balanced lines – nobody is shining offensively except for Patrick Marleau who has scored in all three games of the series. A stunning 11 San Jose Sharks have at least three points in the first three games of the series! The return of Tomas Hertl to the lineup has done wonders for this team – he seems to solidify the lines and he has two goals already in the series.

Antti Niemi has been good – not great between the pipes for San Jose so far – a 3-0 record with a 2.58 GAA and an OK .912 save percentage. But with the offense clicking as it is, he hasn`t had to be the story – and that`s a good thing for the San Jose Sharks.

The Los Angeles Kings have been forced into playing San Jose`s brand of hockey. For the Kings to win, they have to hope for a 2-1 or 3-2 type of game – that simply isn`t happening in the series. The Kings rely on defense – when the defense in faltering the team suffers.

Just three Kings have three points in the series so far – contrast that with what I mentioned about the Sharks. LA isn`t going to score a lot – the defense absolutely has to shine.

A few trends to consider:
• SJ are 39-16 in their last 55 Thu. games.
• SJ are 7-3 in their last 10 road games.
• Under is 32-12-9 in LA last 53 Thu. games.
• LA are 20-9 in their last 29 Thu. games.
• LA are 49-23 in their last 72 home games.
• SJ are 1-8 in the last 9 meetings in Los Angeles.
• Home team is 35-16 in the last 51 meetings.

Jonathan Quick is struggling like nobody – I mean nobody could have imagined – not good for LA! Despite the fact that the LA is 8-1 in their last nine at home against the Sharks, I like San Jose as a slight underdog to put the Kings out of their misery – bring out the brooms!

Pick: San Jose Sharks +101
