Oilers vs. Kings Pick

NHL Predictions: Will Kings skate past Oilers on home ice? 2/7/18

Are the Los Angeles Kings going to carve out a victory at home tonight when they face the Edmonton Oilers? Game time is slated for 10:30PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Los Angeles. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Kings are a -130 favorite on the spread line. The Oilers are a +110 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. Los Angeles opened as a -140 fave before the line dropped.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: Los Angeles. As of Wednesday afternoon, 65 percent of public bets have come in on the Kings. Online wagers have seen 58 percent side with the over.

Who We Like: Los Angeles. The first meeting this season was won 5-0 by the Kings in Edmonton on Jan. 2. Los Angeles also won the final meeting last season, while the Oilers won the season series 3-2. The Kings are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings, while the over-under has gone 5-5. Edmonton has won five of its last seven games with the total going over five times. Los Angeles has won three of its last four including a 6-0 home shutout over the Coyotes its last time out. Los Angeles is 4-6 in its last 10 games, while the under has gone 6-4.

I like the Kings at home here as their 13-9-3-0 record in their arena shows they get the job done more often than not. Edmonton is on a nice roll, but it has struggled the last time out against the Kings and I believe they will have trouble attacking the zone against a staunch LA defense.
