2010 NHL Picks and Predictions for Friday December 10

EDMONTON, ON (TheSpread) – The Edmonton Oilers are looking to get out of the cellar on Friday when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning. Here is a breakdown of my pick for this game.

Edmonton is 10-12-5 on the season having scored just 72 goals while allowing 96. The Oilers are only 4-6-2 at home but have won 6 of their last 10 games.

Tampa Bay is 15-10-3 on the year having scored 86 goals while allowing 98. The Lightning are 8-8-1 on the road and also have won 6 of their last 10 games.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given Tampa Bay betting odds of -118 for tonight’s game while Edmonton has odds of +109. 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.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Edmonton Oilers, 9PM ET (View Matchup)

The Lightning are 5-1 in their last 6 games when playing on two days of rest while the Oilers are just 2-8 in their last 10 home games. I like a pick of the Lightning on the road as the Oilers are struggling at home an have not been consistent all year.
