Welcome to the weekend hockey fans! Sunday provides a smaller sized slate of 5 video games around the NHL, which implies there aren’t going to be a lots of angles for us bank on today.

Los Angeles Kings @ New Jersey Devils 7:00 PM ET

Complete disclosure, the Kings have actually been a hard group to determine for me this season. They have dazzling stretches and after that follow up those video games with genuine head scratchers. That’s where we get today as the Kings have actually fallen three-straight video games entering into this match with New Jersey. Taking the Kings to win all come down to the beginning goaltender for me. If Jonathan Quick gets approval, then LA remains in play, if he is not, it is difficult to validate making the bet. Quick is the clear leading goaltending alternative for the Kings even at 36 years of ages with a GAA of 2.56 and SV% having around .914. Quick is likewise 4-3-2 on the roadway this season in overall. Another stat that puts the Kings on the radar today, and a lot of days, is their general Corsi numbers on the season. The Kings, regardless of their faults, are an outstanding group at even strength, in truth they are 3rd in the Corsi For metric this season at 53.9%. That reveals pure 5-on-5 supremacy throughout a big sample size and can’t be overlooked. LA on the roadway has actually been relatively typical this season and more just recently, that stays the very same. They are 3-3 over the previous 6 away video games although a lot of the losses came versus stiffer competitors than the Devils. I likewise anticipate the Anze Kopitar line will provide the Devils young skill some problem too, we are all familiar with Kopitar’s expertise of closing down the opposition’s stars.

Looking rapidly at the house side, the Devils are 10-11 directly on the season in the Garden State. They likewise are coming off a huge, psychological 7-4 win simply last night over the Carolina Hurricanes. That implies legs might be a bit more worn out, and we will see a various goaltender in the web. Seeing how the Devils have actually fared this season, they have actually had ups and downs practically hand in hand and video game to video game. They might be at house however as mentioned after a big-time win, the drop off might come hard for this system. I like the Kings to take a win on the roadway and continue their much better than anticipated project.

Sidney Crosby, Penguins Gamer Prop 1:00 PM ET

If you haven’t been taking note, here is your civil service statement, Sidney Crosby is beginning to genuinely warm up for the very first time this season. In 10 video games throughout the month of January, Crosby has actually published 13 points that includes 6 objectives and 7 helps. Crosby is likewise back to playing over 20 minutes per video game, and the Penguins’ power play is beginning to enhance, in which Crosby plays an important function. He stays the driver for the 8th finest offense in regards to objectives per video game in the NHL at 3.38. Bryan Rust and Jake Guentzel are back in action together after injuries and COVID have actually ruined their seasons to this point, however the line is now back together. Crosby’s challenger today will be the Winnipeg Jets, and they are playing their 2nd video game in less than 24 hr and on the roadway on top of that. Starting netminder Connor Hellebuyck played yesterday, so he will be a longshot to get the nod again today. His backup Erick Comrie has played in four road games this season and allowed an average of 3.18 goals in those handful of games. The Jets allow 2.87 goals per video game this season which is 16th in the NHL, smack dab in the middle of everybody. Crosby will be on the ice a lot tonight and will have the chances provided the Winnipeg patterns this season. I like Sid to discover the scoreboard this afternoon and him to tally a help offers more worth than simply a point in general, so I am going to bank on Crosby to discuss 0.5 helps.

Los Angeles Kings ML (-130 on PointsBet)

Sidney Crosby, Penguins Over 0.5 Assists (-135 on PointsBet)
