The Edmonton Oilers lead their Western Conference playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 and are road favourites on the NHL odds to make it 3-1 on Sunday.

Oilers vs. Kings NHL Betting Odds

With Edmonton up 2-1, the Oilers may not have to go back to Los Angeles if they win Game 4 on Sunday.

On the updated series line, Edmonton is -714 (was -185) and Los Angeles +484 (was +150). Yep, a blowout will change things. On the exact series line, the Oilers in five is a +140 favourite followed by in six at +219. Kings in six is the +1396 long shot. On the when the series will end prop, five games is +140 with six at +165 (my pick) and seven at +239.

The road team is 6-2 in the past eight meetings.

Edmonton Oilers

We projected an Edmonton win in Game 3 but thought it would be close – it wasn’t as the Oilers rolled the Kings 8-2. Evander Kane had his first career playoff hat trick. Kane became the sixth different Oilers player in the past 35 years with at least two goals in consecutive games and the third in the past 22 years to score three goals in a postseason matchup. Edmonton scored at least eight goals in a playoff game for the 16th time in franchise history. How did the Oilers even lose Game 1? They have outscored the Kings 14-2 over the past two and may now be Canada’s best hope at a Cup over struggling Calgary and Toronto. Mike Smith stopped 44 shots and clearly will be in net again for this one. The Oilers are 8-2 in their past 10 as road favourites.

Los Angeles Kings

Just this writer’s opinion, but I believe we see a goalie change for Game 4. Jonathan Quick allowed four goals on 17 shots in Game 3 before being pulled for Cal Petersen, who allowed four goals on 20 shots in relief. At this point, the Kings have to try something different. Forward Viktor Arvidsson (20G, 29A) remained out injured and is “day-to-day.” Fellow winger Carl Grundstrom (9G, 6A) was not in the lineup for Game 3, either. The Kings are 6-20 in their past 26 as home dogs.
