Edmonton vs Los Angeles: prediction for the NHL fixture
Edmonton are in the Top-3 in the West with a total of 32 points. In the last match, the Oilers lost their three-game winning streak and suffered a defeat to Seattle (3:4). Before that, Edmonton beat Arizona (5:3), Vegas (3:2), and Pittsburgh (5:2).
The Oilers are currently one of the highest scoring clubs in the league, with an average of about 4 goals per game. Dave Tippett's charges are very confident at their home court - here they lost only one game this season.
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles are in 12th place in the Western Conference standings with 22 points. At the moment, the Kings are on a string of two defeats. They defeated Ottawa (4:2) at home, but after that yielded to Anaheim (4:5 SO) and Calgary (2:3).
Todd McLellan's men often struggle to convert their chances and, on average, score 2 goals per game. The most productive player in the squad is Anze Kopitar, who has already scored 23 points, but his efforts are clearly not enough to get the Kings into the playoffs zone.
In 3 out of 5 games against Los Angeles, Edmonton scored more than 3 goals.
In 4 head-to-head games out of 5, more than one goal was scored in the first period.
Edmonton are in good form and have been delivering mostly successful results of late, while Los Angeles only managed a victory over Ottawa. The Oilers hold the advantage in the head-to-head, and we suggest playing their victory.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to Edmonton
