If you’re looking for my recommendation on the puck line, I suggest taking the Kings to cover. Even if the Oilers manage to win outright, this game is expected to remain competitive, and the Kings should 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.
