The Edmonton Oilers and the Ottawa Senators meet in NHL action from the Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday night.
The Edmonton Oilers will look to build on their 3-1 win over Ottawa from their last matchup. Connor McDavid leads the Oilters in scoring with 27 points including team-highs of 9 goals and 18 assists while Leon Draisaitl has 25 points with 8 goals and 17 assists this season. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 11 points with 5 goals and 6 assists while Darnell Nurse and Tyson Barrie each have 10 points with Nurse logging 4 goals and 6 assists while Barrie has 9 assists this season. Kailer Yamamoto also has 8 points with 4 goals and 4 assists this season. Mikko Koskinen continues to start the majority of Edmonton’s action in goal, going 5-7 with a 3.55 GAA in 12 games this season.
The Ottawa Senators will look to bounce back from another loss to the Oilers on Monday. Thomas Chabot, Brady Tkachuk and Josh Norris each have 7 points with Chabot and Tkachuk logging 3 goals and 4 assists each while Norris has 2 goals and 5 assists. Drake Batherson and Tim Stutzle each have 6 points with Stutzle logging 4 assists while Batherson has 5 assists. After Batherson and Stutzle, five more Senators come in with 5 points apiece this season. Matt Murray continues to start the majority of Ottawa’s games in goal, logging two wins in 10 starts with a 3.88 GAA while Marcus Hogberg has gone winless with a 4.54 GAA in 5 starts this season.
Edmonton is 9-1 in their last 10 games playing on no rest and 2-6 in their last 8 road games while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 games overall. Ottawa is 0-5 in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 13-38 in their last 51 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 home games. The over is 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings between these two teams.
I’m not trying to get behind either side here as Edmonton still isn’t worth this kind of price on the road in my opinion and Ottawa’s not playing well enough to make any amount of plus money valuable. Instead, I’m going to side with the over. It didn’t come in for us on Monday, but I think the scoring mitts show back up for Tuesday’s matchup with tired legs across the board, but there’s still a ton of offensive talent between the two sides. Give me the over here.
