Oilers Going For Seventh Win In Eight Games

The Oilers have played well over the past week and come into this game on a three-game winning streak. They will try to pick up their fourth win in a row and seventh win in their last eight games when they play on Tuesday.

Edmonton hasn’t been as good defensively, with the team giving up 3.1 goals per game. They gave up one goal in their last game and will need a similar effort if they want to win this game.

Canucks Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak

Vancouver isn’t very good offensively, averaging 2.91 goals per game. They finished with three goals on 34 shots in their last game.

Elias Pettersson led the way for Vancouver with two goals. Brandon Sutter finished with one goal, while J.T. Miller finished with two assists.

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Canucks are struggling at the moment because they haven’t played well on the offensive end and have scored eight goals in their last three games. Things won’t get easier for them in this game because the Oilers, who haven’t been great defensively this season, are playing very well at the moment and have held their last three opponents to 1.33 goals per game. The Oilers have done a great job offensively and are averaging four goals per game in their last three games. They have also played well on special teams, scoring 19 power-play goals, which is tied for second in the league. With the Canucks giving up over three goals per game and have the sixth-most power-play goals scored against them, expect the Oilers to cruise to an easy win here.

Prediction: Edmonton Oilers -123

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


The Oilers have been on a roll offensively and are averaging 3.6 goals per game. They’ve been almost as effective on the road, averaging 3.11 goals per game, and will score at least three goals against the Canucks, who are giving up 3.55 goals per game. The Canucks are averaging 2.91 goals per game and 3.36 goals per game at home. Even though the Oilers have played well defensively in recent games, they are giving up 2.67 goals per game on the road, so expect the Canucks to score enough goals to push the score over the total. The Canucks and Oilers have played over the total in two of their last three meetings.

Prediction: Over 6
