Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

The Kings are not contenders to win the championship at 200/1, 0.5%. They are one of 3 teams with these odds (#28 in the league). They do not win the championship in any simulations. They are not a good value to win the West either at 100/1, 1%. The Kings are averaging 67.3 points per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 74.5. At +425 the Kings are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 0.4% chance. They have less than 1% chance to win the division. In simulations they finish last in the West based on projected wins.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Oddsmakers expected them to win 35.4 based on their money line game odds. Their 31-42-9 record last season failed to meet expectations. Putting a 100 units on them to win every game would have cost you -1158 units. They were not good on puck lines going 42-40 (-1623 loss). They went over 39 times and came in under 40 times. Based on computer simulations they only have a 39% chance to beat the Oilers in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is -0.73 (includes playoff games) which ranks #31 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #30. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #27 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #31 in home games.
