NHL Weekend Picks: Back the Oilers continue winning streak and capitalize on Coyotes offensive struggles

Hello hockey fans, we’ve been through a quarter of the season and really starting to find out who the contenders and pretenders are. One of those teams must be Toronto Maple Leafs, who looks like a real Stanley Cup championship contender.

After losing 5 of the first 7 games, the Maple Leafs looked like an unstoppable force. Toronto have only lost twice in their last 17 games and one of the top reasons for that is the way the goalkeepers play. Jack Campbell. The 29-year-old scorer has been a phenomenon this season with a 13-4-1 record alongside a league-leading 1.72-goal average. Additionally, Campbell has conceded two goals or less in seven of his last eight games.

The biggest hurdle for the Maple Leafs has always been whether or not they can get the job done in the post-season. The Maple Leafs have lost the opening round of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers for the past five seasons. This seems like the most complete team Toronto has had in quite some time. If this high level of play continues into the knockouts, the Maple Leafs could be prepared for a deep run.

Although Maple Leafs is down on Friday, there are three games that I really enjoy. Come to the options!

Choice of: Kerosene (-130): The Oilers have been one of the most impressive teams in the league this season. Most recently, Edmonton was able to flex their muscles in a convincing 5-2 victory over the previous Pittsburgh Penguins where Connor McDavid completely sensational. McDavid had a four-point performance (one goal and three assists) and has scored four points in each of his last two games. As a team, the Oilers own one of the top fouls in the league as they average 3.8 goals per game (third in the league). NHL). You’re getting some great juice with a talented team like the Oilers.

Edmonton Oilers -145

On the other hand, Kraken was quite inconsistent in their first season. It should be noted that Kraken defeated Florida Panthers last weekend and have two wins in their last three games. However, despite scoring 14 goals in the last 3 games, I don’t expect Seattle to continue to score at such a staggering rate. Get the Oilers in this one.

Main trend: Oilers are 9-1 in their last 10 games after conceding two or less in their last game

💰Other NHL Options

🏒 Shark in Rangers, 7 pm | TV: ESPN+

Pick: Over 5.5 tables (-105): Since losing three games in a row in early November, Rangers have been viewed as one of the NHL’s most dangerous teams. This is a group that has won 8 of the last 9 matches and is currently on a 4-match winning streak. One of the biggest reasons for New York’s recent success is the wingers’ play Artemi Panarin. In the past four games, Panarin has scored seven points, including a two-point comeback against opponents in the Eastern Conference. Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers. Who has no problem throwing the gauntlet at the opponent and being able to reverse it.

Over 5.5

Meanwhile, the Sharks have actually had a pretty solid season together so far. Despite picking up just 21 wins last season, San Jose has bounced back and looks ready to eclipse that mark by a big margin. The Sharks are set to play their third game in four nights on Friday, but it’s a formula that hasn’t slowed them down from an offensive standpoint this season. In fact, the score was more than 5-0 for the Sharks in the third game that lasted four nights. Ranger goalkeeper Igor Shesterkin have been great this season, but the Sharks will be able to score many goals. Then I trust Rangers to do the rest based on how they played.

Main trend: The score is 5-1 in Rangers’ last six games against a team with a winning record

🏒 Golden Knight in Prairie wolf, 9:30 pm | TV: ESPN+

Pick: Under 6.0 goals (-120): Despite facing numerous injuries this season, the Golden Knights are still scoring at an impressive 3.2 goals per game, ranking 9th in the NHL. I believe Vegas will win this game and score a few goals. After all, this is a team that has scored five goals in three of the last six games.

Under 6 years old

That would lead you to believe the upper has some value here, but I’m working with the bottom in this case. I can’t trust Coyotes foul because, well, it’s statistically the worst offense in the whole league. The Coyotes are averaging just 1.8 goals per game and have scored just eight in the past four games. In their last 12 games, the bottom team is 9-3 after scoring two or less in their previous game and Arizona has only scored twice in the previous 5-2 loss. Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. Even if the Golden Knights score three or four goals, I believe the underdogs will have money.

Main trend: Under is 14-3 in Coyotes’ last 17 matches after losing by 3 or more goals
