NHL Playoff Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Vegas Golden Knights at Los Angeles Kings

Vegas +110 at Los Angeles O/U 5
Recommendation: Vegas

The Vegas Golden Knights will be looking to sweep away the Los Angeles Kings in 4 straight games tonight in Game 4 of this Western Conference first round series at the Staples Center. I truly worry about what is left in the tank both physically and mentally for the LA Kings entering this ‘do or die’ game. Los Angeles lost a grueling marathon Double OT game in Game 2 of this series on Friday night in Vegas which was a bitter pill for them to stomach. The Kings responded in solid fashion and led 1-0 for most of Game 3 when suddenly Vegas and their four line offensive depth sprung to life and struck very quickly for 3 goals in succession in the 3rd Period to take a stunning 3-1 lead en route to an eventual 3-2 victory that has pushed Los Angeles to the brink of elimination entering this contest tonight and in the process handed the Kings a second consecutive brutal and painful loss in this series. From what I’ve seen watching this series, Vegas has been too fast, too skilled and far too deep for Los Angeles to handle. The Kings rely on a punishing physical brand of hockey as their method toward success but they have rarely been able to hit many of the speedier Golden Knights forwards because they have been simply too quick for the Kings defense to keep up with and catch going down the ice. Los Angeles did pull off an improbable comeback series win down 3-0 many years ago but that was a better Kings team than this one in my view and a different opponent than the one they are up against here. The long-term pattern says that teams up 3-0 in a series in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are more prone to closing out the series in a 4 game sweep. Teams that have led an NHL Stanley Cup Playoff series 3-0 have gone on to win Game 4 and sweep the series at a 129-84 61% clip. Vegas has owned matchup edges all series long and I have to wonder how much will is left in the LA side and I think a wager on the Golden Knights to close out the series at a small underdog +110 price is one worth making tonight in Game 4.
