Wild vs Oilers Betting Odds and Pick – December 4, 2016


The young Edmonton Oilers have had issues at the Rogers Centre all season long. The Oilers have lost five of their past seven games at home and their powerplay is hitting at just 12.6 percent in Edmonton. The Oilers will look to win a second-straight home game, something they haven’t done since October 26, when they host the Minnesota Wild Sunday.

  • The UNDER is 8-1 in the Oilers past 9 home games.
  • The Wild are 5-0 in their past 5 games in Edmonton.
  • The Wild are 7-3 against the puckline in their past 10 road games.

Leon Draisaitl has been coming up big for the Oilers, as the center has tallied three goals and an assist in the past two outings, which includes the game-winning goal against Anaheim. Draisaitl has recorded 13 points in the past nine games while scoring on over a quarter of his shots on net.

The road has not been kind to the Wild, as they have lost the first three games of a five-game road trip. Though each of those losses came by just one goal, and two in a shootout, Minnesota also scored first in each of those affairs only to throw it away.
