Preview

The Los Angeles Kings and the Edmonton Oilers will meet again at the Rogers Place in Edmonton to play the Game 7 of the playoffs 1st round in the West. The Oilers got the win 4-2 in Game 6 to tie the series.

Los Angeles Kings

The Kings have won 2 of the last 3 games and are 25-19 on the road this season. They have a 47-30-11 record overall ranking 3rd in the Pacific. The Kings are 15-13-4 record in Pacific Division play. The Kings have conceded 236 goals while scoring 235 for a +3 scoring differential.

Adrian Kempe has 35 goals and 19 assists for the Kings. Anze Kopitar has two goals and five assists over the past 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Kings are 6-4, averaging 2.9 goals, 4.8 assists, 5.2 penalties and 14.9 penalty minutes while giving up 2.8 goals per game.

Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 29-15 at home so far this season. They have 52-29-7 overall record ranking 2nd in the Pacific. Edmonton is 24-8 against the Pacific Division. The Oilers have conceded 253 goals while scoring 285 for a +34 scoring differential.

Zach Hyman has scored 27 goals with 27 assists for the Oilers. Evander Kane has 11 goals and three assists over the last 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Oilers are 6-4, averaging 4.2 goals, 7.2 assists, 4.8 penalties and 12.8 penalty minutes while giving up 2.5 goals per game.

BETTING TRENDS

Los Angeles are 5-10 SU in their last 15 games against Edmonton.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Los Angeles' last 9 games on the road.

Edmonton are 15-3 SU in their last 18 games at home.

Edmonton are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games when playing at home against Los Angeles.

Prediction

This has been a much more competitive series than I thought it was going to be. The Oilers have wasted the home games as the Kings beat them twice in Edmonton. Expect another close game and with the Oilers failing to cover the spread in 4 of their last 5 games at home I'll take the Kings to cover.

PICK: Kings +1.5 (-140)
