ROGERS' 10* "PLAY-BOOK!" (THIS IS THE BIG ONE!)
Los Angeles vs. Vancouver,
10/09/2019 22:00 EDT,
Score: 2 - 8
Money Line: -150 Vancouver
The set-up: The Kings are now 1-1 after defeating the Flames 4-3 just last night in Calgary. Vancouver though is 0-2 and I believe the home side is going to risk life and limb today as it looks to get off the schneid and to record a victory here in front of the home town crowd. LA's Jon Quick is 0-1 with a 6.19 GAA
The pick: Vancouver was blanked 3-0 by the Flames last time out, despite directing 33 pucks on the net. Canucks' netminder Jacob Markstrom looked good too in defeat, allowing two goals in 29 shots. Note as well that the Canucks are 7-2 in their last nine home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400, while the Kings are just 2-6 in their last eight road games when playing the second game of a back to back and in which they scored four or more goals in a victory in the first. For all the reasons listed above, lay the price.
