Kings vs Oilers Prediction: Betting on Goals (11/16/22)

Sweatpants Jesus

The Los Angeles Kings travel north of the border to take on the Edmonton Oilers in a Pacific division mid-week battle.

The Kings have been great the last couple of weeks, winning four of their last five games.

Forward Kevin Fiala has fit in really nicely for the Kings, and has really come on strong the last few weeks. He has scored in 3 straight games and has looked aggressive for the Kings.

On the other side, the Oilers have sputtered a bit recently. They have only won 2 of their last 6 and they are mid-table in the Pacific division.

Evander Kane remains out in this one, so it is up to Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and co. to right the ship and get back to winning ways.

This is also a rematch of the Western Conference First Round in the playoffs last season. The Oilers snuck by in 7 games in what was an awesome, hard fought series.

In this Pacific Division battle, who is going to come out on top?

Prediction

I see this being a really offensive game, with both teams flying up and down the ice.

This is the first time both of these teams have played since the playoffs last year so I am sure there will be plenty of pleasantries exchanged, early and often.

I was going to pick a side, but I really don’t have a strong prediction on who picks up the win here.

I do feel confident in goals though. Both of these teams have the offensive firepower to score in bunches.

The Oilers D is not playing great right now and while the Kings are good on the back end, I trust McDavid and Draisaitl to get the job done and bag some goals tonight.

Best Bet

Over 6.5 (-132)


Props

Leon Draisaitl o3.5 SOGs (+105)

I am shocked this is still plus money.

Leon has been shooting the puck so consistently, and has taken on an even more aggressive offensive role with Evander Kane out.

He has hit his shots in 4 straight games and in 5 of his last 6.

For the plus money, this is a no brainer.

Connor McDavid ATG (+100)

If McDavid is ever at plus money to score, it is always a good bet.

McDavid has been rolling to start the season and he loves playing the Kings.

In his last 9 games against them, McDavid has scored in 7.

He has also scored in 5 of the Oilers’ last 7 games.

For that value, and the consistency, I love this bet.
