EDMONTON, CANADA - Tonight will be the second and final time bettors will find odds for the Edmonton Oilers vs. Boston Bruins. Both teams have been playing exceptional as of late and are looking to get the edge on each other during their last meeting.

Boston will look to keep their hot streak alive on the road while the Oilers are looking to get back on track after having a streaky last few games.

Season Stats

Both teams have been playing with a lot of confidence lately and are looking to keep it going tonight when they face off for the second and last time this season. The last time the Bruins and Oilers faced off it was the Oilers who came away victorious with a 4-1 win.

As of recently, the Oilers are currently sitting in first place in the Pacific Division. However, they have been a little streaky over the past 10 games going 6-3-1. Granted they have been without their captain Connor McDavid for the past four games.

“All four games (McDavid’s) been gone, we’ve played very solid, all-around hockey—that shows a lot of character. Guys like (Josh Archibald), whoever it is, they’re filling in roles, Hats off to those guys. It’s not easy going from 11 or 12 minutes to playing 20. They’ve done an amazing job. We’re just looking to keep it going,” said Leon Draisaitl, forward and alternate captain for the Oilers.

Boston sits in first place in their division as well in the Atlantic Division. They have been on an absolute tear lately going 9-1 in their last 10 games.

“We just try to take one game at a time. That’s all you can do—we just focus on ourselves. I think if we do that, we play the right way, we’ll end up where we want to be,” said Boston Forward, Charlie Coyle.

Possible Bets

For those Bruins and Oilers fans looking to bet on the NHL, here are the possible bets fans could make on tonight’s game.

Although the Bruins did not win last time they met, they are favored to win by 1.5 points this time around. Their 9-1 record in the past ten games might have something to do with that.

The Over/Under total goals in the game is 6. This could be interesting as the last time they met the total goals scored was five. Being that Edmonton has been streaky lately, the Over could be smart.

The Bruins Over/Under for goals in this game is set at 3.5. They have scored three or more goals in the last three games so expect that to go into tonight. The Oilers Over/Under is 2.5 surprisingly. They have scored 4 goals in their last two games. This very well might carry into tonight. Expect a high scoring game from both sides.

Player Watch

Ahead of tonight’s matchup, there are a few names that bettors should keep an eye on as these players have been on a hot streak as of late.

With team captain Connor McDavid still sidelined for the Oilers, fans should expect to see Leon Draisaitl to keep picking up the slack as he has scored a total of 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists) in the last four games. Draisaitl is also the scoring leader this season by 13 points.
