NHL Predictions: Will the Senators upset the Oilers? 10/14/17

Can the Edmonton Oilers get on track when they play host to the Ottawa Senators tonight at 10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Oilers are the clear favorite tonight, as Edmonton is getting odds of -180 to win, while the Senators are listed with a money line of +155 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Ottawa has won five of its last six meetings with Edmonton. Tonight’s game takes place from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.

After starting the season with a 3-0 win over the Flames, the Oilers have lost their last two to fall to 1-2 on the season. Edmonton is putting up 2.33 goals per game while allowing 2.67 per contest. Connor McDavid has three goals and an assist to lead the team thus far while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also has a pair of goals. Cam Talbot is off to a slow start in net as he has a 3.42 GAA and a .896 save percentage.

Ottawa started the season with a pair of shootout losses, but has since bounced back with a pair of wins, including a 6-0 win at Calgary last night. The Senators are averaging 3.25 goals per game while allowing 1.75 per contest. Ottawa is being led by Mark Stone, who has three goals while Derick Brassard has two goals and three assists. Craig Anderson has started all four games in net and has a 1.65 GAA while posting a .937 save percentage.

Bet on Senators vs. Oilers

The Oilers haven’t looked good lately and now they face a team that they have struggled with in recent years. Edmonton is not getting good play in net from Talbot, while the Senators have been able to rely on Anderson thus far. The Ottawa offense is also riding some momentum following a 6-0 win on Friday. I think the odds are too high for the Oilers right now, so I suggest going with the underdog.
