Kings at Oilers picks and predictions
Oilers 4, Kings 3
The OILERS (-150) are moderate favorites, and they’re worth playing in their return home after a 2-2-0 road trip.
The Oilers have cashed in 22 of the past 32 home games dating back to last season while winning 31 of their last 41 contests inside the division.
The Kings are also 4-11 in the past 15 trips to Edmonton while going 3-7 in the past 10 meetings in this series. Back the Oil.
The Kings +1.5 (-190) are a little on the expensive side, costing you nearly 2 times your potential return if you would like some insurance.
OVER 6.5(-130) is a little pricey, but it’s worth it.
It’s been all about the Over lately for the Kings, hitting at a 7-1-1 clip across the past 9 games on the road ad going 10-4-2 in the past 16 games overall.
