Edmonton is 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win and 5-1 in their last 6 games overall while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Montreal is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games playing on no rest. The over is 11-4-1 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams in Montreal.

I get the case that could be made for either side as Montreal’s on a back-to-back and Edmonton’s just been spinning their wheels so far this season. However, instead of picking a side, I’m going to side with the over. Both teams have a ton of scoring potential in their ranks and both teams are due to give up a few goals, mainly because the Oilers are the Oilers and Montreal’s on a back to back after dealing with a high-powered Toronto offense on Wednesday. Give me the over here.
