Money Line Pick
Everything would seemingly point to the Oilers in this matchup. Edmonton is past their rough December, as they’ve gone 3-1-1 in 2020. The team is also a respectable 10-8-3 at home this season, and they’ll finally be playing in Edmonton following a lengthy five-game road trip. Some home-cooking always seems to do teams well (even when you ignore the Oilers’ abysmal home record in December).
Over Under Pick
However, one major stat isn’t pointing in Edmonton’s direction: the head-to-head record. Nashville is 9-1 against the opponent in their last 10 matchups, although this is the first time they’ll be facing off this season. The Predators are also a solid 11-8-3 on the road, and they’re currently riding their own 3-1-1 stretch (including two-straight victories, both of which came on the road).
