We delivered another winner on Sunday here at the Sportsbook Room as the LA Angels and Colorado Rockies easily played over the total of 10 ½ runs. Managers better think twice about starting left handers against this powerful right handed lineup for the LA Angels as in back to back games against lefty’s the Angels were able to push across double digit runs in each contest. This Angel lineup from the right side of the plate looks about the best in baseball right now with Trout and Trumbo now everyday players in the lineup. LA starter Ervin Santana continued his shakiness on the hill allowing Colorado seven earned runs in 5 2/3rds innings pitched on Sunday. We liked offense on Sunday’s best bet but on Monday our money is on the defense as we deliver a top play from game six of the NHL Stanley Cup Final between the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings. The Devils and Kings will begin from Staples Center in Los Angeles with NBC providing the live television coverage.

Each game in this Stanley Cup Final has played to under the total and now these two teams in their past eight head to head meetings have gone under. Richard Brodeur has played outstanding hockey by allowing the Kings one goal in regulation in four of the five games. If not for two overtime goals in games one and two by the Kings would have been eliminated in five games in this Cup Final.
The Kings offensive woes have been well document throughout this season and have displayed their ugly head in this Stanley Cup Final. Jonathan Quick has been equally solid between the pipes in this Final by allowing New Jersey six goals in five games with one Devils goal scored against an empty net. The impact of the cross country flights could impact the speed of the game which may limit odd man breaks from both sides. There is little room on the ice to operate offensively with two stellar defenses in front of both goaltenders. With game six huge in this series expect a tight game here so bet the under and before you do read sportsbook reviews.
