The Edmonton Oilers will look to build on a 3-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens in their last matchup.

Winnipeg is 2-7 in their last 9 games as a road underdog and 1-4 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a road underdog. Edmonton is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. Winnipeg is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two in Edmonton.
I've gone back and forth on this one as Winnipeg just has a ton of depth throughout the lineup and you can never count the Oilers out with McDavid and Draisaitl in their ranks. With that said, I’m going to back the over here as I’m expecting quite a few goals in this one and I just don’t see any way how this one stays under the number.
