The Oilers are 5-0 in their last 5 road games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Canucks are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 2-10 in their last 12 overall. The under is 5-2 in Oilers last 7 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Canucks last 5 overall. The Oilers are 9-19 in the last 28 meetings in Vancouver. The under is 5-1-3 in the last 9 meetings in Vancouver. The over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.

The Edmonton Oilers are not only enjoying their best stretch of the season, but they've beaten the Canucks 9-5 in the last two meetings, which includes a win on Tuesday. The Vancouver Canucks remain fade material until further notice, as this team can't do much of anything right these days, especially on the defensive side of the ice. In both teams current forms, the Oilers and the cheap price feels like a steal.
