Free NHL Pick For May 30: Kings vs. Devils
Los Angeles Kings (1.87) vs. New Jersey Devils (1.95); Total 4.5
8:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
The Stanley Cup Finals get under way with game #1 between the Kings and Devils taking place in New Jersey. Most of these games should be low scoring nail biters that can go either way depending on the bounce of the puck which makes betting on them difficult. For me it is going to be the odds that determine if I make a wager. What stands out to me for game #1 is the odds for the series vs. the odds for game #1. The kings are a big favorite (around -170 or 1.59) to win the Stanley Cup. However, the odds for game #1 have it basically as a pick ’em (-110 or 1.91 for each team). The team that wins game #1 goes on to win the series a large percentage of the time. Given that the experts have the Kings as such a big favorite to win the series picking the Kings for close to even money to win game #1 seems like a smart bet to me. Currently the Kings are paying -107 (or 1.93) to win 5 Dimes and are a -115 (or 1.87) favorite to win at Bodog Sportsbook. I’ll take the Kings to win game #1 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.
