The Oilers are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. The Canucks are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 2-9 in their last 11 overall. The under is 5-2 in Oilers last 7 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Canucks last 8 overall. The Oilers are 8-19 in the last 27 meetings in Vancouver.

These lines are very confusing when you consider the Edmonton Oilers are playing head and shoulders the better hockey right now and the Canucks can't get out of their own way, mainly due to a defense that lets them down time and time again. The Oilers have comfortably been the better team at both ends of the floor and they comfortably won the last meeting about a month ago where they got whatever they wanted offensively. I'll back the Oilers.
