BETTING TRENDS

Edmonton are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Los Angeles.

Edmonton are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Los Angeles are 17-23-5 as underdogs.

Los Angeles are 15-3 SU in their last 18 games when playing at home against Edmonton.

Prediction

The Oilers arer on a hot streak right now and are scoring 4.4 gpg in their last 10 games but also allowing 3.2 goals. The Kings have been up and down all season and haven't been profitable as underdogs. However, I expect this one to be a close game and with the Kings having won 15 of their last 18 games at home vs the Oilers, the value is definitel on the Kings.
