BETTING TRENDS

Buffalo are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.

Buffalo are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against Edmonton.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Buffalo's last 6 games when playing on the road against Edmonton.

Edmonton are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.

Edmonton are 14-6 SU in their last 20 games at home.

Edmonton are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.

 

Prediction

The Sabres have been pretty good so far this season scoring 4 and 3 goals in their last 2 games. The Oilers are also playing great offense scoring 4 goals per game in their last 2 games but they have struggled against the Sabres losing 7 of the last 10 head to head games. Expect a high scoring game as both offenses are hot and they're not playing much defense. Take the over.
