Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 6 Los Angeles +120 over Edmonton

10:00 PM EST. Overtime included. You can almost hear the Oilers gripping their sticks all the way from SoCal. Down 3-2, the greatest player in the world, his best buddy, their wacky goalie and the rest of the Oilers have the weight of the world on their shoulders for this one game. How can the Oilers not be thinking about it in a nervous way?

The Kings on the other hand are free rolling. Los Angeles has a great opportunity to close out this series on home ice as the betting underdog and even if they don’t, they will be a nice price on the road in Edmonton for Game 7, which is not a location they have been intimidated by.

If one could point to where the Kings have been dominant, it has been in their starts. The Kings have had the Oilers playing the run-around game in the first frame. L.A. has outshot Edmonton 85-47 and outscored them 5-3 across the first five first periods. It’s not everything, but it’s not nothing. So, too, is the absence of Oilers’ defenseman Darnell Nurse, who has been the workhorse on the backend for Edmonton. Nurse is playing a team-leading 21:45 a night and is tied with Connor McDavid and Cody Ceci at +5. Who's going to step up here? Duncan Keith or Evan Bouchard and their -3’s? Tyson Barrie is a -1 and Brett Kulak is even. Not inspiring. Maple Leafs' fans will agree that the only time Tyson Barrie is safe to be on the ice is when his team is on a power-play.

If we happen to rip up this ticket on L.A. tonight, we are going to come right back on the Kings in Game 7 no matter what. We do not care if the Kings were outscored 14-2 in Games 3 & 4, and we will not be deterred if they get whacked 7-1 here. We’ll just get them at a more inflated number in Game 7 but first things first. The Kings are ready while the Oilers figure to be playing "not to make a mistake". That's a loss waiting to happen.
