An impressive run of strong defensive efforts are now a distant memory to the Oilers, who will look to rebound from a loss to Winnipeg as the teams tangle Wednesday.

Edmonton had limited Ottawa and Montreal three total goals over its three-game winning streak, but saw its goaltending fall apart in a 6-5 setback to the Jets in which Winnipeg prevailed despite being outshot by an incredible 45-24 margin.

Jets vs. Oilers 2/17/21  Betting Analysis

Oddsmakers are going right back to the home team Wednesday night, with the Oilers deserving a much better fate after dominating the shots and hits game in Monday’s loss. Edmonton comes in having won six of eight overall, but has dropped five of its last six home games to the Jets. Winnipeg, which comes in at +117 to prevail for the second straight game, has won four of its last six games and is 5-4-1 SU when listed as an underdog this season.

The total is set at 6.5 for the second game in a row, with the Over (-112) slightly higher than the Under (-107). Monday’s result aside, the Jets have been a sensational Under play in recent road games, with five of their last seven falling below the total. The Oilers are also in the midst of a strong Under trend with four of their past six games finishing short of the number, but they’re also a sizzling 4-1 O/U in their previous five at Rogers Place.

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets haven’t missed a beat offensively since trading elite goal scorer Patrik Laine to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Winnipeg ranks fifth in the NHL in scoring at 3.53 goals per game despite ranking just 19th in shots (29.5). Just as impressively, they rank No. 6 in overall save percentage (91.7), resulting in a plus-11 goal differential for the season despite being outshot by an average of 2.9 shots per contest so far.

Edmonton Oilers

The story is the same as in previous years with the Oilers, who continue to be blessed with one of the most dynamic offences in the NHL but can’t seem to keep their opponents from scoring. Edmonton ranks 24th in save percentage despite its recent hot spell against the Senators and Canadiens, and their 75.4-percent penalty kill success rate could also use some work. On the positive side: the Oilers’ 25.4-percent power-play conversion rate ranks 10th in the NHL.
