After losing 4-1 to the Kings on April 20th , Anaheim returned home for a quick 5-1 beating from Vegas, and now return to Los Angeles to start four straight against the Kings (two in LA, two in Anaheim). As I've been saying all year, when we get California teams playing one another and one of them is laying about 50 cents or more, look to the underdog and letting the chips fall where they may.
Anaheim may be a level below LA and San Jose, but they are still 2-2 SU against the Kings this year, and it wasn't long ago (April 12th and 14th ) that the Ducks found themselves in a similar position as +160 and +150 road underdogs in San Jose and Anaheim took both games to the win column. Hopefully that same thing can happen tonight.
