The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.9 goals per game and are scoring on 31.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 54 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 56 assists and Zach Hyman has 236 shots on goal.

The Oilers are 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Maple Leafs are 54-20 in their last 74 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The over is 35-17-5 in Oilers last 57 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Maple Leafs last 6 overall. The Oilers are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings in Toronto and 7-22 in the last 29 meetings. The favorite is 18-8 in the last 26 meetings.
The Edmonton Oilers are playing well and are worth a look in the underdog role when they're looking strong. However, the Toronto Maple Leafs are a team I've backed a lot this season, and they continue to get the job done. I'm not fading them at home, especially when the Maple Leafs are flexing their muscle against good teams. Reasonable price. Give me the Maple Leafs.
