Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: Edmonton. As of Monday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets have come in on the Oilers. Online wager info also shows 68 percent of bets are siding with the over.

Who We Like: Edmonton swept the two meetings last season and is 8-2 in the last 10 matchups. The over-under has gone 5-5. Florida had a four-game winning streak snapped with a 3-1 home loss to the Kings its last game. The Panthers are 5-5 in their last 10 contests. The Oilers have lost three in a row and are also 5-5 in their last 10 games. The over has gone 7-3.

With overs in five of their last six games and a lack of positive results to show for it, Edmonton knows it must tighten up on the back end. Florida is only 21st in the NHL in goals per game (2.8), so this should be the game to do it. Look for the under to hit in this one.
