Kings vs Oilers Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Kings to take down the Oilers on the road. With the moneyline currently at +125, I’m placing my 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.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
