Sharks vs. Kings Picks

By comparing our predictions to the odds listed above, we have identified the best betting picks to place on this game:

Bet Type Our Pick Best Odds
Puck Line Sharks +1.5 +115
Moneyline Sharks +275
Total Under 6 +100


Although the Kings are more likely to cover the puck line, our best bet of Sharks +1.5 is based on the chance of that happening, when compared to the best odds available.

And while the Kings are more likely to win the game, taking the Sharks moneyline is the best option because of the 1.0% edge found when comparing our data-led probabilities to the betting odds currently available.

Taking advantage of the edges seen here at Dimers is pivotal to being profitable in the long run.

Furthermore, despite the Over being more likely to hit on this occasion, Under 6 is our best bet owing to the better odds (+100) that are available from BetMGM.

Dimers' best NHL bets are based on world-class modeling and gambling intelligence to bring you the best possible plays every time.
