The best player props for the Game 6 matchup between the Edmonton Oilers and the Los Angeles Kings as the series shifts back to LA with the Kings leading 3-2.
Leon Draisaitl – Anytime Goal-Scorer (+105) & Power-Play Points (Over 0.5, +105)
Leon Draisaitl was one of the Oilers’ stars who led the comeback late in Game 5 to force overtime. He scored two third-period goals, one shorthanded and one on the power play, to tie the game with five minutes remaining. Not only has he recorded four power-play points in five games in this series, but three of them have also been goals.
Draisaitl is now tied for the series and team lead in goals with five and has stepped up as was expected from the playoff performer. The Oilers’ power play has come through and Draisaitl has been a big part of that, finishing the plays with his deadly one-timer from the right circle. All he needs is one power-play goal and both of these prop bets hit.
Connor McDavid – Points (Over 1.5, -118)
Connor McDavid has stepped up his game and proven that he can come to play when the games matter the most. He has recorded at least two points in four of the five games and leads the series with nine points in five games. If you are going to put your money anywhere, it is best to place it on the best player in the world with his and his team’s backs up against the wall in an elimination game. The pressure shouldn’t stop and he has been on another level in the postseason doing everything he can to win games.
Trevor Moore – Points (Over 0.5, -105)
Trevor Moore has been a force for the Kings through this entire series. He didn’t get on the scoresheet in Game 5 since the top line took control and finally contributed, but his line has been going hard to the net and adding much-needed goals in every other game but Game 2.
Moore is tied for the team lead in points with five in five games. Those have come in just three games, though. The Oilers have found it difficult to contain that second line with Phillip Danault also sharing the team lead in points. Expect them to get back on the scoresheet in Game 6 and Moore to be a part of at least one goal.
