Game: Phoenix Coyotes at Edmonton Oilers Feb 25 2012 4:05PM
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Saturday 10* (Top Play) on OVER in Edmonton vs. Phoenix @ 4 p.m. ET
The Edmonton Oilers are one of the hottest over bets in the NHL right now and have a ton of value to top the total in Saturdayís home stand versus the Phoenix Coyotes. Edmonton has played over the number in eight of its last 10 outings, having scored three or more goals in six of those contests. The Oilersí most recent offensive explosion came in a 6-1 victory over the rival Calgary Flames Tuesday night. Young stars Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle found their way on the scoresheet in that game, along with veterans Ryan Smyth and Ales Hemsky, as the Oilers peppered Calgary with 42 shots on goal. That offense gets a boost from the return of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who has missed 20 of the past 22 games with a shoulder injury. Nugent-Hopkins has 13 goals and 22 assists in just 40 games for Edmonton, playing many of those at less than 100 percent. Phoenix has leaned towards the over in its recent outings, playing beyond the number in back-to-back games heading into the weekend. The Coyotes have won the last two contests in a shootout, scoring a total of eight goals while giving up seven in those games. Phoenix has been plagued by slow starts in those outings, getting outscored 5-0 in the first period in the past two games. Thatís helped over backers rest easy for the majority of the game. The over has been the best bet when these franchises collide, playing over the total in 39 of their last 53 meetings and posting a 19-7 over/under count in their last 26 games in Edmonton.
Play on OVER in Edmonton as a 10* Top Selection Saturday.
Good luck, Scott
