With the NFL eating my lunch this season, and me not having a whole lot of luck in midweek college football, I am turning my focus to the NHL tonight, and there is one game in particular that is peaking my interest!
I did not even realize, but the NHL was by far my most profitable sport to bet last year. Top 10% NHL bettor on Pikkit, and up almost 41 units the past year in the NHL. I really have to start diving back in to the league this year!
The Oilers (0-2-0) are traveling to Nashville to play the Predators (1-2-0) tonight. It may be a new NHL season, but the Oilers are still the same exact team. Their goalie sucks, and McDavid and Draisaitl are the best, most exciting players in the league.
Edmonton is a slight favorite in this game at -135 on the money line, and the over/under is sitting at 6.5.
The Oilers fell their first two games to the Canucks, 8-1 and 4-3. An important thing to note is that the Oilers are already undefeated on the overs this year. They were the most profitable over betting team last year, and it's looking like that will continue this year.
The Predators have one 3-0 win over the Kraken this year, and then fell to the Bruins 3-2 and the Lightning 5-3.
You probably got the clue of what I'm betting in this game from the preview above. The Oilers have one of the deadliest offenses in the League, and by far the best powerplay unit! The overs haven't lost so far in Oilers games, and we might as well start riding the over wave!
EDM/NSH o6.5 (-130)
Edmonton is a very public team, primarily because of McDavid, so seeing them as a favorite on the road isn't too uncommon. However, I think they get their first win tonight against a very mediocre Predators team.
EDM ML (-135)
Besides the shutout against the Kraken, the Preds have allowed 3+ goals in their other two games. They also have racked up 26 penalty minutes which the Oilers will surely take advantage of. Edmonton is only averaging two goals per game, but that will change tonight. They may cover the over themselves.
EDM TT o3.5 (-110)
And it wouldn't be a WorstBets card without a parlay!
McDavid to score
Draisaitl to score
Good Luck as Always if tailing!
