Jets vs. Oilers November 18th NHL Betting Odds

Winnipeg has now beaten the Oilers five games in a row, including last year’s playoff sweep. They have played the Over in every game but one and on Tuesday night, they hit the Over set at 6.5. That trend has 75 percent of bettors taking the Over again tonight and 70 percent taking Edmonton to win. Special teams will be huge tonight as the number one ranked Edmonton powerplay is up against the 31st ranked penalty kill in Winnipeg.

The Jets have extended their win streak to three games and improved their record in November to 5-1-1. Before Tuesdays game they had played five straight to the over, making their over/under  results 7-7 on the year.

The Oilers offence is scoring a league high, four goals per game, while still giving up almost three at the other end. No doubt that their high flying style of play is what lead to their 10-5 record on the over/under.

Winnipeg Jets

Five different Jets players scored in Tuesday night’s win as the Jets took over first place in the Central Division.

Winnipeg had a comfortable 4-0 lead heading into the third before handing the reins to Connor Hellebuyck to close out the win. The Jets goalie stopped 32 shots to secure his sixth win of the year; he’s been a beast in his past nine starts – going 6-0-3.

Kyle Connor put one into the empty net to extend his goal scoring streak to four games. The American leads the team with 12 goals and is tied with Alex Ovechkin for second in the league.

Edmonton Oilers

Oilers netminder Mikko Koskinen gave up four goals on 26 shots and was replaced with Stuart Skinner to start the third period in Tuesday night’s 5-2 loss. Edmonton pushed back hard, scoring two powerplay goals in the final frame but coming up short before allowing an empty netter.

Leon Draisaitl scored all of his team’s goals, adding to his league lead in that department. The German now has 17 goals and 16 assists for 33 points in only 15 games.

Connor McDavid set up both of Draisaitl’s goals to extend his point streak to 15 games, he is only four points behind his teammate for the league lead in points.

It’s still up in the air who will get the nod in net for the Oilers tonight, but rookie Stuart Skinner looked impressive in only his fourth career game.
