Edmonton vs Vancouver: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Edmonton Oilers did not make any major transfers during the offseason and retained the core of their team. The Oilers have been playing really well in recent years, but they have never used their full potential. McDavid and Draisaitl do a lot of work in attack and are the top scorers for Edmonton.
There are problems in the Oilers' defensive line, which is an easy target for most of their opponents in the NHL. Even in the last four preseason games, Edmonton conceded no less than two goals per game (however, the Oilers won all these games).
The Vancouver Canucks didn't have a good preseason. Travis Green's charges scored more than two goals in only one game out of seven, which shows that the Canucks were unable to solve their performance problems in the offseason.
The Canucks lost their last three preseason games to Seattle (0:4) and Edmonton (2:3 B and 2:3). Vancouver made several changes in their roster, but they are yet to pay off.
In 5 out of 7 games, Vancouver scored fewer than 3 goals.
In the last 5 games against Vancouver, Edmonton scored in the first period.
Edmonton beat Vancouver twice during the preseason. The Canucks struggle to create scoring chances and show low performance, while the Oilers have no such problems. We believe that Edmonton will get an easy win at home.
Our prediction - Edmonton to win
The last games between these two clubs were low-scoring and the Canucks didn't score more than two goals. We suggest playing the total under.
Second bet -total under 7 goals
