The Los Angeles Kings and the Edmonton Oilers will face-off in an unlikely Game 7. The Oilers were one of the biggest favorites of the opening round, but found themselves down 3-2 in the series heading into Game 6. A win on the road allowed them to now bring the series back to Edmonton for a winner-take-all Game 7.

Can the Kings complete the upset, or will the Oilers earn the right to advance to the next round?

Kings vs. Oilers Prediction and Pick

This play didn't hit for me in Game 6, but I see no reason to change it up for Game 7, especially considering we're getting better odds on it. I'm going back to the OVER 6.5 at +100.

The Oilers and Kings rank second and third in the NHL Playoffs in high-danger scoring chances. The Oilers are averaging 16.78 per game, and the Kings are averaging 14.78. More often than not, high-danger scoring chances leads to goals, and goals leads to OVER bets cashing.

On top of that, the Oilers have been shooting the puck well in the postseason, finding the back of the net on 11.96 percent of their shots.

If you're looking for a bet on the side, it's hard to argue against the value the Kings present at +180. That's a long number for a team who has already won three times this series. With that being said, I think the OVER is the smartest bet to place.

Pick: OVER 6.5 (+100)
