Battle in Canada: Edmonton Oilers vs Ottawa Senators Picks and Odds | March 24, 2024 | Betting News

Must read

We got a battle in Canada tonight with the Edmonton Oilers (42-22-4) taking on the Ottawa Senators (29-36-4). Edmonton won the last game these 2 played by a score of 3-1 back in early January.

The Oilers are fighting to stay in the 2nd place of the Pacific Division. They are only 3 points ahead of the Los Angeles Kings but have a 5-point lead on the 1st Wild Card position.

Connor McDavid has been leading this team per usual. He is having another record setting year as he is on pace to have 100 assists. He would be the 1st player to do so since Wayne Gretzky did it in the 1990-91 season, 30 years ago.

The rest of this Oilers offense is buzzing as well. They rank in the top 5 in the league for goals scored per game, shots on goal pr game and power play percentage. They also rank 5th in face offs won, winning 52.8% of the time.

On defense, the Oilers have been holding it down as well. Ranking 9th in goals allowed per game and 5th for shots on goal allowed per game isn’t too shabby.

Backup goalie Calvin Pickard is expected to be in net tonight. He has a 10-4-0 record with a 2.21 GAA and .920 save percentage. He has really stepped up to help out fellow goaltender Stuart Skinner.

Ottawa will have their work cut out for them as they try to derail the Oilers

Senators Captain Brady Tkachuk tries to make a move on Oilers goaltender Stuart Skinner.

Ottawa is pretty much eliminated from the playoffs although it is not official. They’d have to make the run of a lifetime to get in at this rate.

The Senators have struggled all season. They were expected to be a playoff contender this year, but showed early on that they weren’t just cut out for it.

At home, the Sens are 18-16-2 and come into this game off a win yesterday vs the Devils. New Jersey is another team that has started to fizzle out. They are only 4-5-1 in their last 10 games, so we can take yesterday’s win with a grain of salt.

Goalie Anton Forsberg is expected in net for this game. He as a 12-12-0 record with a 3.42 GAA and a .885 save percentage. In another words, he hasn’t been very good either.

Let’s check out today’s odds and get into some picks.

Both of these teams are playing back to backs and the Oilers got smacked yesterday by the Leafs in a 6-3 game. This is a perfect get back spot of the Oilers.

They could use a win to get back on track before tomorrow’s final game of their road trip. Edmonton has also won the last 3 games vs the Sens (the last game in Ottawa went over too).

Connor McDavid is unstoppable right now and as we know, he is surrounded by big talent. If he can keep this offense buzzing the way he has, it is going to be ridiculously hard for the Senators to keep up.

I like for there to be a lot of goals tonight as well. I think McDavid is on a mission for the playoffs as he contends for yet another Hart Trophy.

Expect to see the Oilers roll in this game. The puck line shouldn’t be an issue and sprinkle the over if you’re feeling frisky.
