With the Pens ascending while the Oilers haven’t dominated, what’s the take on the NHL betting odds?

Let’s check the latest NHL odds, stats, injury reports, and NHL lines for Penguins vs Oilers. We’ve plenty of NHL betting odds for you to consider.

Pittsburgh Undefeated In 60

Pittsburgh lost just one game this season, overtime against the Montreal Canadiens. They have won the other four, with a large +16 goal differential.

Everything about the Penguins’ five games into the season have been stellar. They are 10th in the league in power-play percentage, first in team points at 70. Boston is second with 66.

That just illustrates the type of balance of this team. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jake Guentzel are just a few of the weapons, all of whom with three goals thus far.

They’ll be excited to face a wobbly Jack Campbell, an underwhelming .889 save percentage so far. If you bet online, consider the over given how the Oiler netminder has been playing.

Edmonton’s Ending Home Stretch

Edmonton hasn’t played a game on the road. That’s a big reason its 2-3-0 start has been a disappointing one.

This final game in a season-starting homestand offers the Oilers a chance to get to .500.

The most shocking part of the early struggles is that their Oiler offense isn’t clicking. They rank 23rd in total individual points (42), despite the likes of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

That duo has 18 points, while no other player on the team has more than five.

Goaltending’s problematic, same as last season. Campbell was brought in (via Toronto) as a supposed improvement, but he’s just 2-2-0 with an untidy 3.82 goals-against average.

Understudy Stuart Skinner has a .944 save percentage through two appearances.

Penguins vs Oilers Prediction

The Oilers are listed as the favorites in the sportsbook, despite not being nearly as consistent as Pittsburgh. They’re at home, and road trips to Canada aren’t always a walk in the park

The Oilers swept last season’s series, though the Pens have been significantly better as of now.

Edmonton has goaltending issues, while the Penguins are one of the hottest offenses in the league coming into this contest.

That’s disastrous if you’re the Oilers, and it’s why the Penguins have value as an underdog in your NHL picks. Alternately, if you’re wary of the road trip, take the over in what should be a high-scoring affair Monday evening.
