    Kings/Hawks: how are

    The Kings only small favorites in this game? I have watched every game this series. Take out game 1 where Hawks were well rested and Kings off game 7, the Kings have been the better team. Even last game, Hawks jump out to 2-0 lead only to give up a 4-1 run by Kings. In Hockey! Teams aren't supposed to do that. Hawks gave everything they had, on home ice, and needed 2OT to win.

    I am a Hawks fan but can not see how they win tonight. The value HAS to be on Kings right? What am I missing here? The only real thing that scares me honestly is that it seems too easy. I think Kings TT over 2.5 is probably a strong play as well, i don't see Hawks stopping Kings at home, but what am I missing here??

    The only question you need to ask is which goalie do you want in a potential close out game? Crawford with the defending champs, "back against the wall, must win" angle on the road? Or Quick at home with a chance to go to the finals? For me, it's Kings all day. The Blackhawks have been unable to keep a lead (even 2 goal leads) all series long. Expect this to be similar to the Rangers/Habs game in terms of style. Grind it out, 2-1/3-2 type game. Quick stands on his head tonight and Crawford lets in at least one softy.

    The odds are pretty much where theyve been all series. Two very evenly matched teams....Or so it seems

    Im a huge hawks fan.
    Kings have outplayed them all series.
    That being said.... hawks have intangibles. They just always seem to win when they need to. We will see if that pans out tonigbt. I hope so.

    I for one would not feel comfortable backing anything but Kings today if I was to bet on this.

    I would not call -140ish "small". I took a big swing here with the Kings -1.5 at +230. If I win, great. If I lose, big whoop, costs me less than one-half unit.

    They were at -129 when I posted - so to me thats small considering they are home, in a close-out game, and have looked like the better team all series. LA sort of has their backs against the wall as well - they can't afford to lose this and play a game 7 on the road again after being up 3-1. This is a must-win for them. I thought about that puck line as well but that game 3 crap where it actually was a blow-out and Hawks scored with 5 ticks left for a backdoor and the Kings missed a handful of open nets that would have locked the PL up.

    JJ and Bigday on Kings......

    Yeah and looks like you were not alone with that feeling. Still a few -135 around though.

    Kings TT Over 2.5 is the play IMO, Chicago might beat em but I don't think they are going to beat them playing super tight defense and winning a 1-0,2-1 kinda game. BOL
