Free Los Angeles Kings vs. Vancouver Canucks NHL Prediction
Heading into this matchup, the Canucks have a clear advantage between the goal, as they have the league’s top-ranked save percentage at 93.27%. This also includes leading the league in scoring chance save percentage. On the other side, LA’s goalies rank just 21st in save percentage.
Even though the Kings have been able to generate more scoring chances, they are just the 24th ranked scoring team compared to Vancouver at 25.
I recommend taking the Vancouver to pick up the home win. If you are looking to place an over-under bet, I see this being a low-scoring contest and recommend the under.
