Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles has been very weak in recent years and has been the underdog in the league, but now they aim for the top eight at the end of the season. It seemed that after two straight defeats, 2:14 overall, the Californians would be unable to recover. Still, they transformed dramatically and won the next two meetings (4:0 and 5:4), giving them a 3:2 lead in the series. There was still one win to go before they reached the Western semi-finals.
Edmonton also had severe problems in the regular season, but they improved, made it to the playoffs, and earned home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The team suffered a 3:4 defeat in the first game, then twice beat Los Angeles (6:0 and 8:2) before they believed in success too early, for which they were punished twice in a row (0:4 and 4:5).
Expert Betting Tips
Edmonton keeps making the same mistake, relying on its leaders to do all they can to save the team, but the effort is still not enough. The club is much more organized, all game combinations contribute to the final success, and on the last line of defense, Jonathan Quique beats Mike Smith. The Kings will now have home-court advantage, so it's a good bet on the Los Angeles win for 2.26.
Both teams have severe defensive problems, so they rely on the attack. In their previous five meetings, the opponents have scored a total of 36 goals (7.20 goals per game on average), so we suggest betting on a total over 6.5 for 2.216.
Andrian Kempe is having a solid season. In the regular season, he managed to record 54 points (35 goals + 19 assists) in 78 games, which allowed him to set a personal best performance in the NHL. In the playoffs, the Swedish forward continues to be highly productive, registering in five games two goals and three assists as the Kings' leading scorer. The 25-year-old is in good form, so you should consider betting on Andrian Kempe's total over 0.5 for 1.62.
