Kings vs Oilers Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Kings to pick up on a win over the Oilers and the road. With the moneyline sitting at +131, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Kings straight-up.

Our projections have the Kings pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Kings, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

With an over/under line sitting at 6.5 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
