What is up everyone how we doing?! 3 more sleeps until NFL playoffs but until then we have a few great days ahead of hockey and basketball to get our bankrolls juiced up.
So in this one we are tailing the Penguins around on their road trip. This team is the best bet in sports right now and I just can’t stress it enough.
Evgeni Malkin returned last night from the IR and got two tucks en route to a Penguins win 4-1 over a very strong and surging Ducks team. Up next, they stroll into Tinsel Town to play the very respectable Los Angeles Kings.
So let’s dig into this thing and see where the Kings can possibly get an edge on this Pittsburgh team that seemingly cannot be beat at the moment.
Alright so the road Pens first. I sat and watched this game last night against the Ducks and this team does a number of things well.
We know they can score, we know they have young speedsters mixed with some very good veterans. What is perhaps most surprising this season is the elevation of Tristan Jarrys’ play in between the pipes.
He is playing out of his mind right now and if he can continue it and get some help from his backup DeSmith this team will be scary down the stretch.

Los Angeles Kings
The Kings have re-tooled really nicely in the past couple seasons and are loaded with young talent in their system. Their veteran players are also playing very well, Kempe notably is on pace for a 30 goal campaign.
The Kings are winners of 2 straight and 6-3-1 in their last ten games. They are definitely wanting to make a push for the playoffs this season with the ageing core they won 2 cups with who are still producing well.
Will they be buyers at the deadline? I think they will be, but it is really tough to call in what is sure to be a tight race in the pacific division with Edmonton, Calgary, Anaheim, Vancouver and Vegas who will all likely be jockeying for a playoff position.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Pittsburgh are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games.

Free Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Los Angeles Kings NHL Prediction
I am riding the hot hand here as I usually do. Getting Malkin back and having him score two goals in a game they won by three is just such a huge morale boost for this already hot team.
I also simply like how they matchup against this LA team who is more fleet of foot than the speedy Penguins. This should be a tight game though, I like the Penguins to win by two, one of those coming on a goalie pull.
Another big reason why I am playing the Pens is that they have a major advantage in net right now. Jarry is expected to start and he is posting a 1.91 GAA right now which is just absurd.
Until this team shows they are human, I am not picking against them. (Even though I just did against the Blues 2 games ago, idiot.)
