NHL Playoffs Lines: Los Angeles -180
We really have to go with our guts in this one. The Kings are clearly the better of these two teams, but we just don’t know if the Devils are going to give up on this series at this point. Martin Brodeur is a man that has a ton of pride, and he isn’t going to want to get swept out of the postseason in what might be his last shot at another Stanley Cup. Jonathan Quick has been out of this world, but there is a point that he just has to give up some goals. If Ilya Kovalchuk and his line mates can finally get something going, perhaps by breaking this lousy 0-for-12 streak on the power play for the series, maybe the Devils can swipe a game. We suggest waiting as long as you can to see how far LA backers will push this spread. We have already seen the price go from -160 to -200 on the Kings, and if it gets much further than that, it is just going to be impossible for us to avoid at least taking a shot on the visitors to send this series back to the Garden State.
