The Los Angeles Kings face off against the Edmonton Oilers in Game 5 of their Western Conference first round playoff series on May 1, 2024, at 10:00 pm ET. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Kings are the underdogs with +160 odds, while the Oilers are favored at -192. Currently, the Kings have 6% of the moneyline bets, with the Oilers commanding 94%. The total is set at 6.5, with 26% of bets towards the under and 74% towards the over. It's shaping up to be an exciting matchup with the odds in favor of the Oilers.

Going into Kings vs Oilers Game 5, the Edmonton Oilers hold a 3-1 series lead and can close this series out at home tonight. We expect them to do just that to end a series that they have largely dominated through the first four games. Edmonton proved that they can win with more than just their offense in their last outing, which is a great sign for them looking forward in the postseason, and should help them to get through this game and series.

After scoring a total of 17 goals in the first three games of this series, winning two of those three games, the Oilers won Game 4 in Los Angeles by a score of 1-0. The ability to win the occasional low-scoring hockey game is so crucial in the playoffs, even for a team as explosive as the Oilers. That is one of many reasons we like the Oilers to win tonight and to close out the Kings, who lack the firepower to keep up with Edmonton on most nights.
