Kings-Oilers Series Shifts to Los Angeles for Game 3

Oh-Canada May 06, 2022

Tied at 1-1 in their Round One Playoff Series, Edmonton and Los Angeles Face Off in Huge Swing Game on Friday Night

There are two very different ways to look at what we've seen in the Kings-Oilers series, thus far.

From Los Angeles Kings' point of view, they have to be thrilled to head home even at 1-1 theoretically enjoying the advantage.

The Edmonton Oilers see things quite the opposite since they could easily be up 2-0 in this best-of-seven series were it not for a late goaltending blunder in Game 1, which cost them a 4-3 loss. The more motivated Oilers returned to the ice two nights later and destroyed the Kings 6-0, reaffirming team confidence that Edmonton merits being tagged as a significant favourite to advance in the series.

So, which two teams will we see in Los Angeles on Friday night when the puck drops at 7:00 pm PST?

Here's a glance at the odds according to, which offers several intriguing betting options:

At, the Oilers are 5:7 betting favourites, which comes back at 6:5 on the Kings with the O/U set at 6.5 goals.

We think Edmonton is worth a wager here for a couple of reasons.

First, Oilers goaltender Mike Smith was a beast in Game 2, stopping 30 shots and shutting out the Kings following his poor play in Game 1.

Second, he should be provided with goal support from his talented colleagues given the Oilers have outscored the Kings 9-4, so far.

Finally, we think Edmonton's momentum carries over in Game 3 and the Oilers take command of the series by going up 2-1 with a victory.
