The Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Bell MTS Place.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 13 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with four goals, Leon Draisaitl has six assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 27 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 77.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 22 goals on 237 shots faced.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win to build on their solid 4-2 record. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.8 goals per game and are scoring on 17.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with four goals, Mark Scheifele has six assists and Nikolaj Ehlers has 21 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 71.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up nine goals on 113 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up seven goals on 79 shots.
The Oilers are 3-8 in their last 11 games as a favorite and 4-9 in their last 13 overall. The Jets are 8-3 in their last 11 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 games as an underdog. The under is 3-1-1 in Oilers last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Jets last 6 home games. The Oilers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Edmonton Oilers just beat the Jets a couple days ago, but they've had issues stringing wins together dating back to last season and the defensive issues are still lingering. The Winnipeg Jets are playing the better hockey, and they have to feel like they let one get away after allowing two late goals. The Oilers also haven't had much success i the favorite role. The Oilers are stacked on talent, but the Jets are the better team. I'll gladly back the home team here with the even money price, one of the better bets on a loaded NHL card.
