NHL Betting Trends
The over is 5-0 in the last five Oilers games on Tuesdays. Edmonton is 0-6 in its last six games at Tampa Bay.
The home team is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings. The under is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings in Tampa Bay.
Edmonton hasn’t had much success at all in Tampa Bay and have one less day to prepare for this one. Tampa Bay is the more talented team and at home. This is a good opportunity to take the puckline bet as it carries plenty of value here in what could be a one-sided affair.
