The Canadiens are 3-9 in their last 12 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Oilers are 7-0 in their last 7 home games and 23-11 in their last 34 overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Canadiens last 5 overall. The under is 9-1-1 in Oilers last 11 overall. The Canadiens are 6-13 in the last 19 meetings in Edmonton and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The underdog is 17-6 in the last 23 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Edmonton Oilers are playing the better hockey right now and have been the better team over the course of the season. I've also spent a lot of this season bashing the Montreal Canadiens and not understanding all of the respect oddsmakers give them. However, the Habs have won four of the five meetings against the Oilers this season, which includes an overtime win earlier this month. The Oilers are the better side and should be favored, especially at home, but there's some value with the Canadiens and the plus money.
