Preview

The Edmonton Oilers will travel to Florida to take on the Panthers on Saturday. These teams met last month and the Panthers dominated the Oilers and beat them 6-0 in Edmonton.

EDMONTON OILERS

The Oilers have lost their last 2 games but have won 4 of their last 5 games on the road. Edmonton are 4th in the Pacific. 

Leon Draisaitl has 73 total points while scoring 35 goals and totaling 38 assists for the Oilers. Connor McDavid has six goals and eight assists over the last 10 games for Edmonton.

The Oilers are 6-4, averaging 3.4 goals, 5.3 assists, 4.2 penalties and 9.2 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game with an .890 save percentage.

FLORIDA PANTHERS

The Panthers have also lost 2 straight games but they have been great at home with a 23-5 record so far and are still 1st in the Atlantic.

Barkov leads the Panthers with 23 goals and has 47 points. Mason Marchment has nine goals and eight assists over the last 10 games for Florida.

In their last 10 games the Panthers are 7-3, averaging 4.5 goals, 7.4 assists, 3.9 penalties and 8.4 penalty minutes while giving up 3.2 goals per game with an .890 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Edmonton are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.

Edmonton are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Florida are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Florida's last 11 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Edmonton's last 5 games.

Prediction

Both teams are scoring more than 3 goals per game and defensively are allowing 3 or more goals as well. The Over is cashing the 75% of the time at home for the Panthers and last game between these two ended with 6 goals but Oilers didn't score, I think they'll score 3 goals at least on this game. Over is the play.

PICK: Over 6.5 (-140)
