NHL Look Ahead Sunday, Dec. 19, 2021
Another week, another look ahead at some of the top weekend games on the NHL slate, so today, we will take a deeper dive into a handful of games in order to figure out where we should be leaning.
Understanding where we should be heading early in the week helps us maintain success and do solid research.
Los Angeles Kings and Washington Capitals Covers the Spread Better than Anyone
These two teams are two of the best teams at covering the spread in the entire National Hockey League as the Los Angeles Kings are 17-9 against the spread this year while the Washington Capitals are 17-11 against the spread thus far.
However, the difference is the offense as left winger Alex Ovechkin is the best player in the world right now as he is top three in the league in goals (20), assists (24), and points (44) this season. The Kings are killing 75.8 percent of the opposing power plays while the Capitals are killing 83.3 percent of power plays against them.
All in all, go with the Washington Capitals to cover the puck line in this game and continue being dominant at home.
