Edmonton vs Los Angeles: prediction for the NHL game
After losing two games in a row (0:4 and 4:5 OT), Edmontonpulled themselves together and leveled the score in the series. Yesterday, they beat the Kings (4:2) away. The Oilers had a powerful performance in the third period - they secured their advantage by scoring two goals. Goalie Jonathan Quick made 33 saves.
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles were the underdogs of this series, but they put up a good fight and won three games against the Oilers. Before the last game, the Kings were in the lead at 3-2, but yesterday they let Edmonton level the score in the series. Los Angeles often experience difficulties on defense and allow the opponent to create many dangerous chances.
In 3 head-to-head games out of 4, the teams scored in each period.
In 5 head-to-head games out of 6, the teams scored more than one goal in the second period.
Edmonton have a slight advantage over the Kings - the last game of the match will take place at their home arena. Los Angeles aren't reliable on defense, and we doubt they can withhold the Oilers' attack in the upcoming game.
Our prediction - Edmonton to win
Five out of six games between Los Angeles and Edmonton were high-scoring. We expect a similar performance from the clubs today and suggest taking the over.
Second bet - total over 6 goals
