The Action Network's proprietary betting models have detected value on the spread and moneyline for one team in the Kings-Oilers matchup tonight.

That means our models think one side of the puck line should be priced far differently than it currently is. Same goes for the moneyline.

Our tracking data has also indicated sharp and big money action on that moneyline pick.

Both teams are competing for a playoff spot, with the Kings the real surprise of the two. Prognosticators were assured in their guarantees that the Kings would miss the playoffs this season — and by a wide margin.

As it stands right now, LA is the second seed in the Pacific Division — and the Kings have a date with the Oilers in the first round of the playoffs as of the standings on Wednesday afternoon.

Edmonton was the second-shortest preseason favorite to take this divisional crown and it looked the part for the first few months of the season. A slump that started in December — precipitated by poor goaltending play and a lack of scoring by the third and fourth-lines — have put the Oilers in a precarious position.

The Oilers are three points up on the Vegas Golden Knights for the last playoff spot in the division. They also have a game in hand.

With all of that being said, read further to see what our picks are and the theory behind our betting models.
