The Oilers are 2-5 in their last 7 games as an underdog and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Jets are 5-1 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 3-8 in their last 11 Saturday games. The under is 7-0 in Oilers last 7 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Jets last 5 overall. The favorite is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Winnipeg Jets are playing the better hockey at the moment and have the advantage with the home ice and the better defense. However, the Edmonton Oilers are playing good hockey in their own right and they've won four of the six meetings against the Jets this season, which includes three straight victories. The Jets have had issues this season scoring against the Oilers. In what should be a competitive contest, give me the Oilers in the cheap price.
