If the Oilers have any real hopes of winning the division and securing home-ice advantage for the playoffs, these two games against the Kings in the next five days are going to be huge. To this point, the Kings have played the Oilers very well and locked in both of the games played so far, but that was also happening before Mattias Ekholm landed and our boys started to light things up. That’s not to say that I expect an easy game by any stretch — the Oilers will need to bring their A-game if they plan on picking up two points — but I also don’t think Edmonton is as bad as they were in those earlier matchups. The tricky part for the Oilers will be figuring out how to navigate the trap style of play that the Kings use so successfully. It’s doable, but by no means will it be easy.
If you’re following along at home, the odds I’ll be using for my game day betting articles all season come from Betway. Here’s what I’m putting down against the Kings.

Player Prop:

Leon Draisaitl over 2.5 shots at -163. My $5 bet would return $8.03.

Easy Money:

Over 62.5 shots on goal at -118. My $5 bet would return $9.25.

Risky Business:

Connor McDavid and Evander Kane both to score at +300. My $5 bet would return $20.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Tampa Bay over Washington on the money line, Carolina over Detroit on the money line, and Boston over Columbus on the money line at 2.70. My $5 bet would return $13.53.


Last Game

I can’t even begin to tell you how pumped I was on Tuesday night when the Oilers lit up the Golden Knights. That win was so big that I completely forgot that I also had money on what was happening.
  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over 2.5 shots at +105.
  • Over 1.5 total power play goals at -110. ✅
  • Edmonton to win, over 6.5 total goals, and Connor McDavid to score 1+ goal at +350.
  • Dallas over Chicago on the money line and Winnipeg over San Jose on the money line at 2.00.
And there you have it, friends. Now that you know what I’m betting on — I’ll be throwing one unit down on each bet, for the record — feel free to hit me up in the comments section to let me know what you’re looking at against the Kings.
