Bruins vs Oilers Over/Under Pick: Over 6½ (EV)

Boston has one of the top defenses in the league this season, but it hasn’t been performing like it recently, and it’ll have trouble slowing down one of the top offenses as well.

The Bruins have given up 3.6 goals a game in their last five, and with Edmonton next up, which averages 3.56 goals a game for fifth in the league, those defensive issues are likely to continue. The Oilers have shown no signs of slowing down offensively, averaging 4.2 goals a game in their last five and coming off a six-goal performance.

Edmonton’s power play has been impressive, ranking fourth in the league and converting on 3-of-9 chances in its last three games. Boston also ranks in the top 10 at ninth, and though its offense hasn’t been as strong, it has the opportunity to get back on track against Edmonton, which has given up four goals a game in its last three while expected starting goalie Stuart Skinner has a .880 save percentage this month.

With neither team’s defense playing particularly well and the Oilers’ offense staying hot, our NHL betting prediction is on the over.

 

Bruins vs Oilers Player Prop: Leon Draisaitl Over 1½ Points (+164)

In a higher-scoring game, the Oilers are likely to look to their biggest producers to get the job done, which includes Leon Draisaitl, who is second on the team with 68 points.

Draisaitl has 11 points through seven games so far in February, and he has scored at least two points in three of his last four games and four of his last six. He has been strong at home, scoring 34 points in 24 games. With Boston’s defense currently struggling, Draisaitl is our best player prop bet tonight.
