Los Angeles throttled the Ducks to win game seven of their playoff series and advance to the Western Conference Finals to face Chicago. Now, these two teams renew their rivalry. These two teams meet in the West Finals for the second straight year and the Kings will look for revenge over the Blackhawks after Chicago took the series en route to a Stanley Cup title last year. We will bet on the Kings on the road in game one as they take the early lead.
Kings riding high after game seven win to advance
Los Angeles has all the confidence in the world right now after putting on a clinic against the Ducks to win game seven of their series. The Kings did not have much time to rest, winning game seven Friday night and traveling on Saturday night for a Sunday afternoon game. This is the third straight year that the Kings will play in the Western Conference Finals after soaring past the Blues and the Ducks in the first two series.
Blackhawks still working on defense of Stanley Cup title
Chicago has won two Stanley Cup titles in the last four years, with one of them coming last season. Chicago had to get past the Kings in the West Finals to make it happen, which is why this year’s version of the rivalry should be even more exciting. Chicago has enjoyed some time off this week after dispatching the Minnesota Wild in six games, so they could be a little rusty when game one gets underway Sunday afternoon.
At TopBet.eu, the oddsmakers like the Blackhawks at home, with a little rest, in front of their fans to win the series opener on Sunday. Despite all of this, we will bet 15 percent of our bankroll on the Kings and the OVER five total goals scored at -110 as they secure the game one win over the Blackhawks.
