Why Bet on the Oilers

Edmonton is looking to finish the season strong, and anytime they get a chance to beat another team from Canada, the stakes become higher. The Oilers are led in scoring by Taylor Hall, who has 61 points. Hall leads the team with 25 goals and 36 assists. Edmonton has the second worst goal differential in the Western Conference, as they have allowed 239 goals and scored 194. The Oilers rank 28th out of 30 teams in the league, allowing 3 goals per game. The Oilers need 3 points to finish with 70 or more points for the first time in 4 seasons.

Why Bet on the Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks have seen one of the biggest falls from last season to this year. Last year the Vancouver Canucks recorded 101 points, this year they will not reach 80. The Canucks are 29th out of 30 teams in the league in goals scored, with 2.2 per game. Defensively, they have not been much better, allowing teams to score 2.8 per game. The top scorer for Vancouver this season has been left wing Daniel Sedin, with 28 goals and 32 assists. His brother Henrik Sedin leads the team in assists; with 42.

Expert Betting Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks are just playing out the season now. Vancouver is one of the biggest disappointments in all of the National Hockey League. Vancouver has struggled on both the offensive side and defensive side. Edmonton, being at home, should be the deciding factor in this game. Being a slight underdog, makes betting the Edmonton Oilers an even nicer bet. Take the Edmonton Oilers +111 over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday in the National Hockey League. The final score for this game will be Oilers 2 and Canucks 1.
