Bet on hockey value for both teams has been surprisingly good and the Kings have been on quite a roll against the hockey lines. The Atlanta Thrashers had an overall bet on hockey record of just 19-32-5-0 straight up but a break even 28-28 against the hockey lines.
Atlanta is usually a large bet on hockey underdog which often ends up making them into a value-added team that scores a big profit whenever they can pull off a win. Atlanta has been mediocre on the road this season with just 10 wins in 28 road games.
The Thrashers have been something of a solid over team against the bet on hockey totals as they went under the total in just 11 out of those 28 games away from home. It was only two seasons ago that the Thrashers were a playoff team and the toast of Atlanta. Their pathetic fall has mostly been because of a lack of defense and depth.
They have even been rumored to be making attempts at unloading their one true bet on hockey asset, Ilya Kovalchuk, who again leads the team in scoring and is about the only legitimate reason to watch or bet on hockey with the Thrashers.
From January 20 through February 10 the Los Angeles Kings won 7 out of 8 games against the hockey lines, which improved their overall bet on hockey record to 24-22-2-5 straight up and 29-24 against the odds.
The Kings have been emerging under the bet on hockey radar for most of the season until their recent explosion which all of a sudden has them in playoff contention.
LA’s bet on hockey strength is their 7th ranked defense as goaltenders Erik Ersberg and Jonathan Quick both have posted save percentages over .900 and goals against averages beneath 2.50. Alexander Frolov led the Kings in goals with 22 while Anze Kopitar led in points with 43. Dustin Brown has also been a bet on hockey plus with 20 goals.
