Ottawa Senators vs. Los Angeles Kings Predictions

The Senators, despite their recent struggles, have shown flashes of brilliance throughout the season, largely thanks to the efforts of their star forward Tim Stutzle, who leads the team with 56 points. Ottawa’s offense, however, will need to find a way to penetrate the Kings’ defense, which has been relatively solid, ranking in the middle of the league. The Senators’ own defensive game will be put to the test against a Kings team that has been finding the back of the net with regularity, led by Kevin Fiala with 55 points.

Los Angeles, currently on a 1-game losing streak, is looking to maintain their position in the competitive Pacific Division. With a balanced attack and solid goaltending, the Kings have been tough to beat at the Arena, where they have a better record than on the road. The Senators, on the other hand, have struggled away from home, which could play into the Kings’ hands. However, Ottawa’s power play has been a bright spot and could be a key factor if they are to upset the Kings.

This game will feature a battle between the Senators’ top goal-scorer Brady Tkachuk and the Kings’ leading goal-getter Trevor Moore. Both players have been instrumental for their respective teams and their performance could very well dictate the outcome of the game. With both teams eager to claim a victory for different reasons, this matchup is set to be a tightly contested affair with potential playoff implications for the Kings and a chance for the Senators to build momentum towards next season.

Ottawa Senators vs. Los Angeles Kings Pick

The Ottawa Senators may be on a losing streak, but the historic head-to-head trends suggest that the visiting team has had the upper hand in recent matchups, with the Senators covering the spread in the last encounter. Despite the Kings’ solid performance at home, the Senators’ power play efficiency and the ability to win faceoffs could give them the edge they need to turn the tide in this game. Moreover, with Tim Stutzle leading the team in points, the Senators have the offensive prowess to challenge the Kings’ defense and potentially secure a win.

Considering the odds, the value lies with the Senators’ moneyline bet. The Kings are the favorites, but the potential payout for an Ottawa win is more enticing, especially when factoring in the close nature of their recent games. The Senators are due for a bounce-back performance, and with the Kings coming off a loss and potentially underestimating their opponent, Ottawa has a prime opportunity to capitalize and end their losing streak. The Senators’ recent form on the power play and their success in faceoffs in the last game against the Kings are key indicators that they can pull off an upset in Los Angeles.

The Pick: Ottawa Senators +165 (BetMGM)
