NHL Hot and Cold Teams for Betting This Week

At the beginning of the season, the Oilers were the top team in the Western Conference.  Edmonton fans and media were planning the first Stanley Cup parade in the City of Champions since 1990.  But then the Oilers’ same NHL betting problems began catching up to them.  First, Edmonton lacks defensive and scoring depth.  Second, they don’t have a bona fide number one goaltender.  Once the losses started accumulating, fans asked if they had a coach.  Gamblers have fled the Oil for the tall grass.  And it’s going to take a lot of winning to get them back.

Islanders Finally Make their Move

Edmonton Struggles to Strike for Oil

To be exact, the Oilers have lost seven of their most recent eight hockey betting matchups.  Edmonton went over the total in just two of their last six outings.  As a result, the Oilers have fallen to 19-16-2 and 19-16 over the total.  Edmonton ranks 11th in the NHL for goal scoring and 1st for power-play efficiency.  But defensively, the Oil is 26th for goals allowed and 23rd for penalty killing.  Also, Edmonton ranks 26th for shots against.  All of which points to their poor defensive lineup and weak goaltending.

#1 goaltender Mikko Koskinen has a terrible save percentage of .898 with a 3.31goals against average.  Edmonton would like to trade for a bona fide starter.  But the problem is that they also need defensemen in front of whoever the goaltender is.  Further, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl carry too much of the offensive load.  Secondary scoring on Edmonton is as much of an issue as the defense.  Cause by defenses being able to focus on the Oilers’ Big Two fully.

Flame Out in Calgary  

Edmonton’s rival in the Battle of Alberta has been nearly as bad.  To illuminate, the Flames have won just three of their last ten NHL gambling matchups.  Calgary is 18-12-6 and 18-18 over and under.  The Flames rank 14th in the NHL for goal scoring and 2nd for goals allowed.
