The Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks meet in NHL action from the SAP Center on Monday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Kings will look to add to their 3-1 win over the Seattle Kraken last time out.

The San Jose Sharks will try to rebound from back-to-back losses after a 2-1 OT loss to Pittsburgh last time out. Timo Meier leads the Sharks in scoring with 40 points including 15 goals and a team-high 25 assists while Logan Couture has 30 points with 13 goals and 17 assists. Tomas Hertl has 31 points with a team-high 20 goals and 11 apples this season. Adin Hill has gone 9-10-1 with a 2.73 GAA and an .906 save percentage for the Sharks while James Reimer is 11-7-1 with a 2.68 GAA and a .916 save percentage this season.

Los Angeles is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite while the under is 8-1-1 in their last 10 road games. San Jose is 22-47 in their last 69 games against a team with a winning record and 0-5 in their last 5 games as an underdog while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.

I get the argument to be made either way here as this is a rivalry game, but we’re getting a really great price with the Kings that are the much hotter team playing better hockey over the last couple of weeks. San Jose is just too inconsistent for my liking and too inconsistent to pass up on this price with the red-hot Kings. Give me L.A. and the cheap price here.
