Game 3 saw the Oilers and Kings go head-to-head in overtime for the second time this series. Los Angeles forward Trevor Moore scored the overtime winner, but it wasn't without controversy as the goal underwent a lengthy review to determine if there was a high stick. Eventually, Moore's goal was given the clearance, giving the Kings a 3-2 win and the 2-1 series lead.

Oilers vs Kings Prediction & Pick

The Oilers may not agree with how Game 3 ended, but they must put that behind them and use it as motivation to even the series. Fortunately, they've been strong on the road, winning seven consecutive away games before their latest loss. Edmonton is also 6-3 straight up in its last nine trips to crypto.com Arena, outscoring Los Angeles 32-24 in that span.

I see the road team's stars starting this game off hot after Game 3's controversial ending. Connor McDavid has 29 points in his last 19 games against the Kings while Leon Draisaital has 19 in his previous 14. As long as the dynamic duo gets off to a strong start early, Edmonton will be in a good place to even the series.

Fueled by revenge, the Oilers will return to Edmonton with the series tied 2-2.

Final Score Prediction: Oilers: 4 | Kings: 1

Oilers vs Kings Best Bet

As talent-rich as both sides are, I don't expect a ton of offense in Game 4. Seven of the Oilers' last 10 games have seen fewer goals scored than expected, as have eight of the Kings' most recent 12. The under is also 4-1 in the last five Edmonton-Los Angeles clashes, yielding an average goal total of 4.8.

After finishing with fewer than 6.5 goals twice already this series, expect the Oilers and Kings to add to that trend.

Bet: Under 6.5 Goals (-118)
