Oilers vs. Avalanche CashBet Free Pick   

As mentioned earlier, the Oilers and Jets are playoff bound.  Colorado and Edmonton could potentially meet in the Western Conference Final.  The big

NHL gambling question for Edmonton is if they can tighten up defensively.  Correlate that nobody wins the Stanley Cup with offense alone.  Inevitably there comes a time in the playoffs when defense and goaltending must deliver.
