Edmonton is 22-10 in their last 32 home games and 4-9 in their last 13 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 home games.
I get the case to be made to back or fade either side, but I’m looking at the over here. I don’t trust either set of goaltenders as far as I can throw them and this just looks like a 4-3 or 5-4 kind of game right from the get go. I’ll side with the over and bring some popcorn to this fireworks show.
