LOS ANGELES KINGS vs. EDMONTON OILERS PREDICTIONS

The Kings hosted the expansion Seattle Kraken for a back-to-back set Saturday and Monday. Well, Saturday's game went well, as the Kings doubled up the Kraken 4-2 behind Cal Petersen as the total pushed. But Monday's second end didn't go nearly as well. The Kraken released six shots for goals, while crowning the Kings 6-1 as the OVER connected. Philipp Grubauer was probably wondering why he wasn't given the same kind of offensive support which Chris Driedger received.

Speaking of 6-1, that's the score of the most recent win for the Oilers over the Arizona Coyotes on Monday. The Oilers are having no problems lighting the lamp lately, averaging 4.8 goals per game across the past 10 outings, while cashing the OVER in seven of the previous eight contests. The Oilers have been a little up and down lately, winning two and losing two in regulation across the past four, so the goaltending and defense could tighten up a skosh.

LOS ANGELES KINGS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 36-23-9
  • ATS: 40-28
  • O/U: 30-36-2

The Kings have alternated losses and wins across the past nine outings, with four games with one or no goals scored, while lighting the lamp three or more times in the other five outings. It's been a very strange pattern for L.A.

Los Angeles has managed to win nine of the past 12 games on the road, but that's where the good stops. It is 3-7 in the past 10 games against Western Conference teams, while going 2-5 in the past seven games on a day of rest.

For totals, the OVER is 4-0-1 in the past five games overall, while going 4-1 in the past five as a road underdog. The OVER is also 8-3 in the past 11 against teams with a winning overall record, while going 3-0-1 to the OVER on a day of rest.

EDMONTON OILERS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 37-25-5
  • ATS: 32-35
  • O/U: 35-29-3

The Oilers bounced back nicely against the lowly Arizona Coyotes, winning 6-1 after being emasculated 9-5 by the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome by their provincial rivals over the weekend. Edmonton isn't having issues scoring, going for five or more goals in each of the past three games, and six of the past eight outings.

Edmonton has won seven games at home, while going 7-3 in the past 10 games overall, while going 6-0 in the past six as a favorite. The Oilers are 6-0 in the past six as a home favorite, too. They're also 14-5 in the past 19 games against the Pacific Division, too, although they're 3-8 in the past 11 against teams with a winning record.

On totals, it's all about the OVER lately for the Oilers. They've hit the OVER in each of the past four outings, and seven of the past eight contests. The OVER has cashed in eight straight when favored, while hitting in five in a row at home. The OVER is also 4-1 in the past five inside the division.

LOS ANGELES KINGS vs. EDMONTON OILERS BETTING CONCLUSION

The Kings are looking to bounce back after a disappointing and inexplicable loss to the Seattle Kraken at home. That kept the Kings stuck in second place in the Pacific Division, seven points back of the first-place Calgary Flames while the latter has two games in hand. More importantly, especially for this game, is that the Kings are two points ahead of the third-place Oilers, while Edmonton has a game in hand.

The Oilers can slip up the standings with a win here, and it's a good bet to happen since Edmonton has won five of the past six home games against Los Angeles. The favorite has cashed in 26 of the past 35 meetings, too. That's good news for the Oilers. Edmonton should make it happen, as the offense has been on point lately, and the L.A. defense has been very giving recently with 3.6 goals per game allowed across the past five outings.
