The Oilers saw an epic 16-game win streak snapped with Tuesday’s 3-1 loss in Vegas and are now aiming to avoid losing in consecutive gams played on the road since November 22. The Ducks make their first appearance since the NHL All-Star break riding a two-game win streak after eking out a 3-2 victory over the visiting San Jose Sharks 10 days ago, and have won three of their past four overall.

Winners in eight of their past nine meetings with Anaheim, the Oilers lead the way as lofty -275 road favourites on the Friday NHL odds and as a -115 bet on the NHl puckline to claim victory by at least two goals. The Ducks trail as +225 underdogs and the total is listed at 6.5.

Oilers vs. Ducks NHL Betting Odds

The Oilers were unable to maintain momentum in their return from last week’s All-Star break, and saw their 16-0-0 run end with a 3-1 loss to the Stanley Cup champions on Tuesday night. The loss marked the first time in 15 games that the Oilers surrendered more than two goals. In fact, Edmonton allowed just 1.50 goals per game during their recent surge and just five total goals over their previous three road contests. Not surprisingly, totals bettors taking the UNDER have cashed in each of Edmonton’s past 11 games.

The Oilers have also effectively shut down the Ducks during their current 8-1-0 head-to-head run, allowing just seven total goals while winning their past five meetings and have limited the Ducks to two or fewer goals in seven of their past eight visits to Anaheim.

Connor McDavid picked up where he left off before the All-Star Break by potting the Oilers lone goal, a shorthanded marker, in Tuesday’s loss to Vegas. Overall, McDavid has now recorded 10 points during a five-game points streak. However, he has recorded just one multi-point performance on the road in nine away contests since Christmas. Leon Draisaitl also kept his current points streak alive by setting up McDavid’s goal on Tuesday. The Big German has picked up eight points in four games and has tallied multiple points in six of 13 games since New Year’s Eve.

Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks return to action enjoying their first win streak since December 18, and can credit steady goaltending for their recent success. The Ducks have surrendered just 2.00 goals per game during their current 3-0-1 run but now face the massive challenge to winning three straight on home ice for the first time since November 2021. Troy Terry has found a higher gear during the club’s current surge. Terry scored and added an assist in last week’s 3-2 OT win over the Sharks and has compiled eight points during a six-game points streak. However, the 26-year-old has generated just one point in his past four appearances against the Oilers. Frank Vatrano extend his goalscoring lead among Ducks shooters with his 22nd goal of the season versus San Jose. That marker snapped a six-game scoring drought for the 29-year-old, who has struggled to maintain the form that produced 14 goals during October and November.
