The Oilers are 9-1 in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-6 in their last 8 road games. The Senators are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 16-44 in their last 60 overall. The over is 6-1-1 in Oilers last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in Senators last 6 overall. The Oilers are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Ottawa. The road team is 15-5 in the last 20 meetings. The over is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators remain unabackable, as the loses continue to pile up and they've scored two or less goals in eight of their last 12 games. The Edmonton Oilers are not only playing the better hockey, but they've beaten the Senators three times this season, outscoring them 15-8 during those contests. There's really only one direction to go in this contest. Give me the Oilers and the PL for max betting value.
