Edmonton is 9-1 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record and 4-1 in their last 5 games overall while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 road games. Calgary is 1-4 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 in their last 5 Monday games while the under is 8-1-2 in their last 11 games following a win. Edmonton is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

I’m not going to lie, Edmonton really burned me against the Canucks and call it petty if you want but that’s enough to put me on auto fade with the Oilers for a bit. On the other hand, these games against Calgary are always wars and despite being a true rivalry, these games always seem to be offensive clinics. That alone is enough to push me towards the over in this one.
