NHL Tips


Edmonton Oilers @ Vancouver Canucks

The Edmonton Oilers will bring their game to Vancouver on Wednesday night in North America to take on the Canucks. The Oilers are fresh off of a 7-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres from earlier this week. That will probably earn them some bets as many will see Edmonton as an in-form team following that tremendous victory. However, the Oilers remain too difficult to to bet on with any confidence.

What punters should be looking at in this game is Edmonton's continued defensive mishaps coupled with their enormous offensive firepower. The Oilers have a ton of games where they give up three or more goals. Furthermore, with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl leading the way, Edmonton is rarely held off the scoresheet. They are generally good for at least two goals and often run the score up higher than that.

Take the OVER for total goals in this upcoming game. Unibet has OVER 6.5 goals priced lengthy at $2.55. There's a small but reasonable enough chance that just one team scores enough goals for the OVER to hit. Both teams combining to 7 or more can't be considered as improbable as the betting odds suggest.

Futures


The Montreal Canadiens are a team to watch when it comes to NHL Ante Post. Through six games the Canadiens have earned an impressive nine points. While their schedule has been home-heavy, they have tallied three of a possible four points in their road games.

Montreal has what might end up being a deadly tandem in net. Carey Price requires no introduction as a former Vezina winner. He didn't seem to be himself last season but if his body is feeling good then he's more than capable of winning 37+ games. Through four starts this season, he has two wins and a 2.24 goals-against average.

Antti Niemi is Price's backup and he is 2-0-0 thus far. Last season in Montreal he had a .929 save percentage in 19 starts for the Canadiens. Price and Niemi could be a very effective defensive tandem this season in goal for Montreal.

The good news for punters is that the Canadiens are considered peripheral threats for a divisional title. They are priced out at $34.00. That's a line that value punters should sprinkle at this early stage of the season as it is one that might shorten in the weeks ahead.
