Saturday's NHL Prediction
EDMONTON, AL (TheSpread) – The two worst teams from each conference collide on Saturday as Edmonton plays host to Ottawa. Here is a look at my pick for this game.
Edmonton is 16-30-8 on the season and 7-15-4 at home. The Oilers have scored 134 goals and allowed 184. They have lost 8 of their last 10 games.
Ottawa is 17-30-8 on the season and 8-15-4 on the road. The Senators have scored 121 goals and allowed 183. They have lost their last 10 games.
Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given Edmonton betting odds of -117 for tonight’s game while Ottawa has odds of +108. The over/under for goals scored has been set at 5.5. Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.
Ottawa Senators vs. Edmonton Oilers, 2PM ET (View Matchup)
Ottawa has won 6 of the last 7 meetings against the Oilers and 4 of the last 5 in Edmonton. The Oilers are just 1-7 in their last 8 games when playing on 2 days of rest. My pick is with Ottawa on the road as the underdog as they have a history of success with Edmonton. Despite both teams being awful, Ottawa is due for a win as lengthy losing streaks don’t tend to last in the NHL.
