This has been one of the most exciting series in this first round. With every game having gone over the total so far, it’s hard to believe these two teams are capable of playing an under match at this stage.

We like the total over in this one but we are targeting goals early in the first period at the top-rated sportsbooks.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Los Angeles Kings

Sunday, April 28, 2024 – 10:30 PM ET at Crypto.com Arena

Goals, Goals, Goals

So far this series has produced 11, 9 and 7 goals in each game and there’s no reason to believe tonight’s matchup will be any different, especially with this Edmonton Oilers team who boast two of the best attacking players in the NHL in Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid.

What’s made the Oilers even more dangerous now is the fact that Zach Hyman has also been on fire this season. Finishing the regular season as their top goalscorer, he has so far banged in six goals in just three games, making him the top goalscorer in the playoffs.

The Pick

The first three games of this series saw 2, 4 and 3 goals scored in the first period. Tonight, we are targeting some more early goals at -125 NHL betting odds for over 1.5 first-period goals.

The Edmonton Oilers trio are hot right now and the L.A. Kings will get their chances against this Oilers’ defense.
