Montreal vs. Edmonton,
12/21/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 3 - 4
Money Line: +107 Edmonton
The Oilers are (slight) home underdogs, primarily, for two reasons: 1. They've struggled lately. 2. They're playing the second of b2b games. Neither of those reasons really concern me though. The fact that they've struggled lately should add to their desperation level. This is the Oilers' last home game before Christmas and they'd badly like to make it count. As for playing two games in two days, the Oilers are actually 3-0 in that situation so far this season, winning 4-1, 4-3 and 3-2.
The home team won both meetings last season, the Oilers winning 6-2 here at Edmonton. The Habs are on the third leg of a long road trip and they're a bit banged-up. Having already won the first two games of the trip, they could be a little more complacent than their hosts. Consider Edmonton.
