BETTING TRENDS

St Louis are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

St Louis are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games against Edmonton.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of St Louis's last 6 games on the road.

St Louis are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Edmonton.

Edmonton are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Edmonton's last 12 games against St Louis.

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

 

Prediction

The Blues have been pretty good so far this season scoring 6 goals per game in 4 of their last 5 games and are 6-1 in the last 7 games playing in Edmonton. The Oilers have struggled so far this season losing 3 of their last 4 games and couldn't score a single goal in their last game against the Blues, they dominated the Blues last season but things are looking different this year. I think the Oilers will play better this time and score more than 2 goals and with the Blues on fire right now the over looks like the best play.
