The Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
New York is listed as a -140 home favorite while Los Angeles is a +120 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For the Kings, Trevor Moore is questionable for this game with a lower body injury while Carl Grundstrom is out with a lower body injury. For New York, Ryan Lindgren is questionable for this game with an upper body injury.
New York’s 5-3 win back on November 22nd, 2022, made it back-to-back wins for the Rangers in this head-to-head matchup.
Los Angeles is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games while the over is 10-1 in their last 11 games following a win. New York is 12-2 in their last 14 games against the Western Conference and 5-1 in their last 6 home games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Pacific division.
I’m backing the Kings here. The Rangers are a solid team that’s started to play their better hockey at home, but it doesn’t excuse the current struggles that New York’s been having in recent games. The Kings have something going well right now and have started to find something in net with Pheonix Copley. I think the Kings bring some great value to the table on Sunday so give me L.A. here.
