The Line: Los Angeles Kings +175 / Edmonton Oilers -215 -- Over/Under: 5.5
The Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Rogers Place.
The Los Angeles Kings look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Los Angeles Kings are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 15.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Anze Kopitar leads Los Angeles with 21 goals, Drew Doughty has 36 assists and Dustin Brown has 161 shots on goal. Defensively, the Los Angeles Kings are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 75.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Jonathan Quick has given up 133 goals on 1,224 shots faced and Jack Campbell has allowed 51 goals on 660 shots. The Los Angeles Kings have allowed three or less goals in six of their last seven games.
The Edmonton Oilers could use a win here after losing five of their last eight games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 21.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with 43 goals, Connor McDavid has 70 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 192 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 75.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Anthony Stolarz has given up 11 goals on 101 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 127 goals on 1,380 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or more goals in five of their last eight games.
The Kings are 3-15 in their last 18 games as an underdog, 1-7 in their last 8 games as a road underdog and 5-16 in their last 21 overall. The Oilers are 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 7-16 in their last 23 vs. Western Conference and 7-15 in their last 22 home games. The Kings are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Edmonton and 20-8 in the last 28 meetings. The over is 17-8-1 in Kings last 26 overall. The under is 5-2 in Oilers last 7 home games.
The Los Angeles Kings have put together a couple of nice wins despite having nothing to play for, but they're on the end of a back to back and are a road underdog, something they have little to no success as. The Edmonton Oilers continue to come up small and have pretty much ruined any chance of them making these next couple of weeks interesting. Still, the Oilers are the rested team at home, and the home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between the Kings and Oilers. I'll side with Edmonton due to the rest advantage.
