|EDM (-107) @ Draftkings|
The set-up: The NHL season is a different one for sure. Teams will face each other at least twice in a row in the same building (not always on back-to-back nights.) After this the Habs actually play three straight in Vancouver, so I think the visiting side is going to get caught looking ahead to that difficult journey. The Oilers on the other hand are now just 1-2 after getting destroyed 5-1 by Montreal two nights ago. The exact same thing happened to Edmonton on opening night, as it lost badly to the Blues in that first game, before then bouncing back and easily taking the second. Suffice it to say, I'm expecting the exact same thing to happen here.
The pick: Note as well that Montreal is just 2-7 in its last nine after scoring five or more goals in a four-goals or greater road victory in its last outing. This one is extremely important to Edmonton and less so for the Habs. I'm laying the very reasonable price on the much "hungrier" team.
The is a 10* GAME OF THE WEEK on the Edmonton Oilers.
