EDMONTON OILERS vs. NASHVILLE PREDATORS BETTING CONCLUSION

These teams haven't met since Nov. 27, with the Oilers winning 3-2 at home in a shootout as the UNDER cashed. Mikko Koskinen outdueled Juuse Saros in that battle. Prior to that, the Oilers won 5-2 on Nov. 3, again in Edmonton, and again behind Koskinen, although Connor Ingram was in between the pipes for Nashville in that one.

Edmonton has actually won five in a row in this series, although the Oilers are just 2-7 in the past nine trips to the Music City, and this is the first trip for the Oilers to Nashville this season. Look for Nashville to enjoy a little home cooking, pushing past the Oilers for an important two points, as the Predators jockey for playoff seeding with the Dallas Stars, Los Angeles Kings and these Oilers.
