The Oilers are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 20-7 in their last 27 games as a favorite. The Flames are 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The under is 6-0 in Oilers last 6 overall. The under is 5-2-2 in Flames last 9 overall. The Oilers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 39-19 in the last 58 meetings.
The Edmonton Oilers enter this contest playing easily the better hockey and they still don't get a ton of respect from oddsmakers. The Oilers have been money in the favorite role and they've won five of the seven meetings against the Flames this season. The Calgary Flames can't get out of their own way and playing at home hasn't helped much. The Oilers are comfortably the better team here and have proven that multiple times this season. Give me the road team and the cheap price.
