(65) Arizona vs. Edmonton (66)
PICK: 888sport @ EDM (-152)
DATE: February 19, 2019 - 9:00 PM
STAR RATING: 8.0
EXPERT: Will Rogers
EVALUATION: Loss (-1216)
The set-up: These are two crummy teams. It wouldn’t be difficult to write a convincing argument for either, but unfortunately for the Coyotes, they played (and lost 5-2) in Calgary just yesterday afternoon. The Oilers have been a disaster this year, but they’ve been off since a 5-2 setback in New York on Saturday. No need to over think this one in my opinion as I believe Arizona comes in “dog tired” in the second game of the back-to-back. From a “situational” stand point, I absolutely think this one sets up beautifully for the home side.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well but Arizona is 10-12 (-1.2 units) vs. teams with losing records this year, while the Oilers are 21-15 (+5.7 units) in their last 36 after playing three straight road games. This one has blowout written all over it, lay the price.
