Los Angeles Kings Odds
The NHL franchise that brought Wayne Gretzky to the US, the Los Angeles Kings are a hockey success story in an otherwise unnatural Southern California market. Despite some ups and downs, the franchise eventually stabilized, going on to win the Stanley Cup in 2011-12 and 2013-14.
The Kings have been rebuilding since, but the 2022 ballot measures seeking to bring legal and regulated sports betting to California could be just in time. If sports betting does become legal, it could coincide with the Kings being worth betting on again.
Here’s a look at how Los Angeles Kings betting would work in California, including the latest game lines and Stanley Cup odds.

Best Los Angeles Kings betting sites
Sports betting is not legal in California just yet. That means no retail or online sportsbooks or sports betting apps are allowed. However, both could be coming soon with at least one sports betting initiative on the November 2022 ballot and possibly a second on the way.
Right now, Californians can’t legally make NHL bets anywhere inside the state, but they can in all three neighboring states. That means Californians can bet from Nevada, the original sports betting state; Oregon, where retail and online sports betting has been legal since 2019; and Arizona, which became a sports betting state with retail and retail and online sportsbooks in 2021.
Kings live betting & in game odds
Live betting lets you bet on NHL games in the middle of the action. However, the live odds can change at the speed of the game, making sportsbook apps the best way to keep up. It’s unlikely you could get a bet down fast enough at a retail sportsbook before the odds change again.
That means you’ll have to wait for legal and regulated online sports betting to launch in California before you can bet on live Kings games from inside the state. Until then, you can make live bets on games via sportsbook apps from within the borders of Nevada and Arizona. This includes such top options as the DraftKings betting app and FanDuel betting app.
Basic bet types for Kings games
Betting on the Kings is multi-faceted. You can bet on the team to win another Stanley Cup via NHL futures odds or you can bet on it to win or lose any single game via standard game lines. You can also bet on team and player production via various hockey prop bets. Standard Kings betting lines include the following:
- Kings moneylines: Pick outright winners at the currently available odds.
- Kings puck lines: Pick winners with different goal lines factored into the final score (standard is 1.5). Turn the odds around, make favorites into underdogs, and vice versa with the puck line.
- Kings totals: Bet on the total combined scores in individual games.
- Kings props: Bet on team and player stat lines and specific game occurrences.
Kings betting lines in California vs. Vegas odds
Kings game lines will start in the same or very similar places at most sportsbooks, whether they are retail or online sportsbooks in Nevada, Oregon or Arizona. And if California legalizes sports betting, we can expect the same here.
The thing is, these lines are subject to change and might end up looking different by the time the first puck drops. NHL lines can move based on betting, but while one sportsbook might change a line because more money is coming in on one team or the other, others won’t if they’re not receiving the same betting action.
That’s why you might see different lines for the same game at different sportsbooks, even though they started the same or similar. Of course, local interest in the Kings is bound to drive local betting, meaning more of a chance a Kings line would move at California sportsbooks than just about anywhere else.
