Kings vs Flames Prediction

For a moneyline bet, I’m backing the Kings to secure a victory over the Flames on the road. With the moneyline currently set at -110, I’m locking in my bet on the Kings straight-up.

Our projections have the Kings pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Kings, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
