Bruins vs. Oilers Prediction

I’m backing the Oilers here. Not often I’ll pass on the Bruins and plus money, but something just feels off about the Bruins right now and perhaps they got back on track with the win over Dallas, but the Oilers are no pushover, especially at home, and it feels like they’ve been the better team since the all-star break. Give me Edmonton here.
