The Jets are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 6-1 in their last 7 Thursday games. The Oilers are 4-0 in their last 4 home games and 15-7 in their last 22 overall. The over is 7-0 in Jets last 7 overall. The under is 6-2 in Oilers last 8 games as a favorite. The Jets are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Edmonton and 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

You can make a case for either of these teams that are playing well at the moment and the first four meetings this season have been split down the middle. However, the Edmonton Oilers have shown more consistency up to this point and have thrived playing on the end of back to backs. At home, I'll give the edge to the Oilers and the cheap price.
