Coyotes vs Oilers Prediction

To those searching for a pure moneyline wager, the Oilers is the clear pick. Still, with a payout of -288, it’s worth thinking about including this bet in a parlay.

My recommended pick for the puck line is to take the Coyotes to cover. Even if the Oilers win straight-up, this one should be close throughout and the Coyotes should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
