LA Kings vs Edmonton Oilers prediction

The Kings and the plus money is worth a look when you consider they have 22 road wins this season and much of the year were better on the road than at home. However, the Oilers have comfortably won the last 3 games against the Kings and have won 8 of the last 10 games against them overall. The Oilers were in control of game 1 from the start and are just way too comfortable offensively against the Kings. The Oilers have scored 4 or more goals in 7 of the last 10 games against the Kings. It's something about the Kings where the Oilers eyes get big offensively. I have no choice but to side with the Oilers, and I'll lay the PL to shave down the price.
