Oilers vs. Jets Face Off on Saturday Afternoon

NHL Feb 18, 2022



Edmonton (27-18-3) skates into Winnipeg (22-18-8) this Saturday afternoon for an unusual 4:05 pm ET start.

The Oilers have won 4 straight and have dominated their opponents recently, outscoring the opposition 17-6 during their hot streak. Fittingly, they are small favourites in this daytime matchup, laying -120.

Winnipeg is nearly as impressive, winners of 3/4 while outscoring opponents 17-11 over the past week. The trouble for the Jets is -- this is their 6th game in 9 days, which is a brutal stretch of games that could result in a fatigue factor for this matchup.



OPINION (courtesy of Pointspreads.ca):

We lean to the Oilers priced at -120 based on the edge in scheduling here. However, the smarter play is probably the OVER, which is 6 goals, shaded to the OVER at -120. Both teams have potent offenses and the Jets' goaltending might not be able to stop the toughest duo in hockey, Draisail and McDavid.
