The Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks face off on Friday in an NHL showdown at the Honda Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Oilers vs Ducks prediction.

Oilers Winning Streak Finally Snapped

The Oilers had won 16 games in a row before they were defeated in the last game against the Vegas Golden Knights. The Oilers' offense had been good, but against Vegas the offense only scored one goal and they ended up losing by two goals. Connor McDavid finished with one goal and eight shots on goal. The Oilers are averaging 3.46 goals while their defense is giving up 2.76 goals per game. The offense is ranked 6th and they are going to need the offense to be a lot better here.

Ducks Turning it Around?

It’s been an awful season for the Ducks, but maybe they are finally turning around the season. The Ducks have won each of their last two games including the last game against the San Jose Sharks where they were able to secure the 3-2 victory. The Ducks on the season are averaging 2.56 goals, while their defense is giving up 3.4 goals per game. The offense is ranked 29th while the defense is ranked 26th. Troy Terry has been one of the few bright spots and he has scored 15 goals and added 22 assists.

Oilers vs Ducks Betting Prediction

The Oilers are coming off a loss and the Ducks might have won two straight, but it’s going to be the Oilers that pick up the win here. The Ducks offense is still averaging only 2.56 goals per game, and I don’t see them running up the score here. The Oilers defense has been good, and they are going to step up here. The Oilers offense is also going to get back on the right track and this is going to be a very comfortable victory. Back the Oilers on the puck line to cash here with ease.
