Oilers vs Kings Prediction & Pick

The Kings had played the heavily favored Oilers tough as nails through four playoff games, but Game 5 was the first of the series that wasn't close most of the game. The Oilers power play is elite and finished with the best success rate in NHL history. Edmonton is now 8-of-14 on the power play in this series after Game 4 hero Zach Hyman added another PP goal in Game 5.

Leon Draisaitl has been big in this series scoring 6 goals after another in Game 5. The NHL's top scorer Connor McDavid added has 2 goals and 6 assists with a pair in Game 5, and CMD now has 34 points in his last 21 games against the Kings. The Oilers have another 100-point player in Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (37 goals). Edmonton will be the public's play, and Edmonton is playing better, has momentum and the Kings defense doesn't have the answers to slow the high-powered Oilers attack.

Final Score Prediction: Oilers: 5 | Kings: 3

Oilers vs Kings Best Bet

Scoring has picked up the last two games, and projected to continue in Game 6 with more rest. The Oilers bottom lines added three goals in Game 5, and the Kings pulled goalie Joonas Korpisalo after his first poor performance. The Kings bottom defensive pairing has played poorly, and Sean Walker came into the lineup in place of Edler and had a good performance in Game 5. Still, the Oilers had put at least 37 shots on net in the first four games but converted 6 goals on 27 shots in Game 5.

Laying big prices is not advised, and we reduced risk and odds in Game 5 with a pair of winners on the Oilers. Look for the regulation odds only once posted, along with prop bets, and bet the Oilers to score more again to close out the series.

Bet: Oilers to Win in Regulation and Oilers Over Team Total Goals 3.5 (-122)
