The Oilers are 6-1 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Canadiens are 4-9 in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-1-1 in Oilers last 6 overall. The under is 11-3-1 in Canadiens last 15 Monday games. The Oilers are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Montreal. The underdog is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

We've been down this road a few times this season with the Habs, as I just don't get what the oddsmakers get when pricing them. Despite losing to the Canadiens in three of the four meetings this season, the Edmonton Oilers are playing the better hockey right now, have been better on the season and have actually made money for their bettors. The Montreal Canadiens have burned a hole in bettors pockets this season. I'll gladly take a shot with the Oilers and the plus money here.
