Edmonton Oilers vs Pittsburgh Penguins: Worst Versus First
Pittsburgh Penguins: High scoring Pens rested and ready
Averaging four goals per game, through the first five games of the NHL 2013-14 season, the Penguins have soared to a 4-1 record and enter this contest well rested. Pittsburgh last played on Saturday night when they registered a 5-4 road win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Sidney Crosby led the Pens attack as he registered a hat-trick and added an assist on the game winning goal by Matt Niskanen. The hot start continues here.
Edmonton Oilers: Rough start continues for the young stars from Alberta
Loaded with young prospects, the Edmonton Oilers have opened the new NHL season with a dismal 1-4-1 record. Edmonton leads the league in goals against as they’ve been outscored by a 29-19 count. The Oilers are also at a travel disadvantage here as they are playing their third straight road game. Edmonton will play back-to-back games for the first time this season – they lost 4-2 to the Capitals in Washington last night.
Penguins vs. Oilers Game Day Lines & Online Sports Betting Handicapping Call
Posted as surprisingly reasonable home chalk, the topbet.eu bookmakers have tagged Pittsburgh with a -1.5 (+130) puck line to go with a -225 straight up price. Edmonton comes in as road pups at +1.5 (-150) ATS and +185 on the money line while the Over/Under is listed at 6 (-110) total pucks. All things considered, we see a “load up” opportunity in this contest. We like riding the Pens wagering wagon and will lay the -1.5 pucks here.
