The Oilers are 56-118 in their last 174 Tuesday games and 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The Canucks are 8-3 in their last 11 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 5-2 in their last 7 Friday games. The under is 7-0 in Oilers last 7 overall. The under is 8-2-1 in Canucks last 11 overall. The under is 7-1-3 in the last 11 meetings in Vancouver.

The Edmonton Oilers continue to flex their muscle offensively and they've been rather solid this season, providing good value with the cheap prices they often get. The Vancouver Canucks have lost three of the five meetings against the Oilers this season and this will be their first game in about three weeks. It's likely going to take the Canucks time to get back in the swing of things, as it's hard to find a rhythm after such a massive layoff. The Oilers should win this game, and I'll take the PL to shave down the expensive ML price.
