Connor McDavid has recorded 11 points in the last four games and Leon Draisaitl boasts at least a goal in the same span for the Oilers, who are fourth in the league in scoring. Winnipeg is second in goals-against, but managed to score just four times the last three games.

Over bettors have been cashing bets lately when the teams play and we think it will continue with both squads quite healthy.

 

 

Oilers vs Jets ATS Pick: Oilers -1 ½ (+200)

This is definitely a value play with the odds. It will come down to how well the Edmonton defense plays in front of Stuart Skinner, who gave up 13 goals in his last four outings. McDavid, Draisaitl, Bouchard and Zach Hyman (four of his 50 goals in the last three games) will be hard to hold down as they try to rebound from two losses.

 

 

Oilers vs Jets Moneyline Pick: Oilers (-125)

The Jets have good value (+1400) in the Stanley Cup odds with a Vezina-worthy goalie in Connor Hellebuyck, but they are going through a little dip lately. We think it continues.

 

 

Oilers vs Jets Player Prop: McDavid Anytime Goal (+115)

McDavid has been piling up the assists, but it’s time for him to find the back of the net.
