Tight Game Looks Likely

The Kings and the Sabres should fail to surpass a total of 6 goals. Our prediction is available at -106 and these look like attractive odds.

Sabres Beat Kings in Pair’s Previous Clash

Los Angeles Kings claimed a home victory in their previous game. A 4-0 triumph against Edmonton Oilers at Crypto.com Arena made it back-to-back wins. Quinton Byfield landed 3 points, featuring 2 goals and 1 assist. David Rittich got a shutout making 26 saves.

Buffalo Sabres were defeated last time, making it three home losses on the spin. KeyBank Center saw them beaten 3-1 against St Louis Blues. Sabres had 34 shots and Kyle Okposo scored the only goal.

The scoreline was 5-3 in favor of the Sabres when they last played the Kings, with the encounter taking place at Crypto.com Arena. The previous 7 H2H meetings have involved the Sabres winning four times.

Expert NHL Analysis

We study the form as a first port of call and also make sure we’re across any injuries before making NHL predictions. Then it’s a case of understanding the sort of narrative that the team, player and goalie stats provide.

Key Kings vs Sabres stats:

  • The 6 line hasn’t been covered in 11 of the last 20 Kings games on the road.
  • The 6 line hasn’t been covered in 13 of the last 25 Kings games on the road this season.
  • The 6 line hasn’t been covered in 5 of the last 5 Sabres games at home.
  • The 6 line hasn’t been covered in 8 of the last 10 Sabres games at home.
  • The 6 line hasn’t been covered in the last 6 Sabres games at home this season.

We’ve taken the view that the teams will go under the total goals line in this NHL clash. Therefore, our pick is to back the Under selection with confidence at -106.

A popular type of wager is a Bet Builder where bettors can go Under a Total but actually combine this selection with other picks. Add in more options until you’re happy with the odds.

Under 6 Probability

The sportsbooks imply that our pick has a 51.5% prospect of winning. Based on our analysts in-depth research, we calculate the actual probability to be 55-60%. The wager can be recommended for this precise reason.
