The Florida Panthers have allowed three or more goals in eight of their first 10 games.
The Edmonton Oilers also look for a win here after splitting their last six games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 33.3 percent of their power play opportunities. James Neal leads Edmonton with nine goals, Connor McDavid has 14 assists and Leon Draisaitl has 40 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 86.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Mike Smith has given up 13 goals on 173 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 12 goals on 164 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or less goals in each of their last nine games.
The Panthers are 23-48 in their last 71 games as a road underdog, 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 in their last 6 games following a win. The Oilers are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite, 4-0 in their last 4 games as a home favorite and 5-0 in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 50-20-2 in Panthers last 72 overall. The under is 5-2 in Oilers last 7 overall. The Panthers are 5-15 in the last 20 meetings. The road team is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Edmonton.
Four of the last six meetings between the Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers have produced at least seven goals. The over has been a very strong trend for the Florida Panthers dating back to last season and will continue to be with both of their goalies having issues getting stops. The Edmonton Oilers have the firepower offensively to expose those areas of concern and there's a good chance we see another high scoring game between these two teams. Give me the over in this contest.
