Preview

The Edmonton Oilers continue on the road and will visit the Calgary Flames on Thursday night. These teams met 3 times last season and the Flames led 2-1.

 

Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton get here with a 4-3 record after beating the St Louis Blues 3-1 on the road.  Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored his 200th career goal to break a tie in the third period and Stuart Skinner stopped 35 shots. Zach Hyman had a goal and an assist and Jesse Puljujarvi also scored.

Leon Draisaitl led the Oilers last season with 55 goals and has 110 points and this season he already has 12 points, 3 goals and 9 asisists. Connor McDavid has five goals over the last 7 games for Edmonton.

In their last 10 games the Oilers are 4-6, averaging 3.2 goals, 6.1 assists, 3.7 penalties and nine penalty minutes while giving up 3.5 goals per game with a .935 save percentage.

Calgary Flames

The Flames have won 4 of their first 5 games of the season and are 3-1 at home so far ranking 1st in the Pacific. They're coming from a tough game against the Carolina Hurricanes where they came up with the victory 3-2 in overtime with a goal from Tyler Toffoli.

Nazem Kadri has scored 4 goals with 5 assists  and 9 points for the Flames. Rasmus Andersson leads the team with six assists over the past 5 games.

In their last 10 games the Flames are 5-5, averaging 3 goals, 4.9 assists, 6.5 penalties and 17.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Edmonton are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Calgary.

Edmonton are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Calgary.

Edmonton are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against an opponent in the Western Conference conference.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Calgary's last 6 games.

Calgary are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Calgary's last 9 games against Edmonton.

Calgary are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Oilers have been good so far this season winning 4 of their first 6 games and have scored 9 goals in their last 2 games but they have struggled against the Flames losing 4 of the last 5 head to head games. The Flames are on a roll and just beat one of the best teams in the league so it's hard to against them right now. With both teams playing great offense and the over cashing in 7 of the last 9 head to head games between these 2 so I expect a high scoring game. Take the over.

PICK: Over 6.5 (-110)
