The Los Angeles Kings might be the reigning Stanley Cup champions but the NHL oddsmakers aren’t banking on them repeating. That’s because the current Stanley Cup favorite is the Chicago Blackhawks, who have the most points in the NHL so far.
The Blackhawks are favored on the betting lines on Monday night as they get set to host the Kings. It’s easy to see why as the Kings have lost three straight on the road while giving up 14 goals in the process. The Blackhawks are 11-1-1 at home and have won the first two meetings with the Kings this season.
