The NHL continues with six games scheduled for Monday, November 28, including this inter-conference duel, so make sure you don’t miss out on the best Panthers vs. Oilers betting pick and odds.
Florida will open the five-game road trip when they take on Edmonton at Rogers Place. The Oilers are -110 moneyline favorites on BetUS Sportsbook, while the total is set at 7 goals. These inter-conference rivals have already faced this season, and the Oilers won that game 4-2 in Florida.
Panthers fell short of the Blues in OT
The Florida Panthers (10-8-2-1, 6-15 ATS) lost four of the previous five games, and even though they snapped a three-game losing skid with a win over Boston, they fell short of the St. Louis Blues in overtime. The Panthers had a 3-0 and 4-1 lead, but allowed three goals in the space of eight minutes in the third period and then lost in overtime.
Aaron Ekblad, Radko Gudas, and Carter Verhaeghe scored in the opening period to make it 3-0 for the Panthers, while Anton Lundell later made it 4-1 for the hosts. However, that was all from Florida, who didn’t score in the final period and in OT and suffered a 4-3 defeat. The Panthers have even ten players with 10+ points so far in the season. Matthew Tkachuk leads the team with 27 points (G 9, A 18); Carter Verhaeghe (G 12, A 7) and Brandon Montour (G 4, A 15) have 19 apiece, while Aleksander Barkov (G 5, A 13) contributes with 18 points.
Sergei Bobrovsky (4-5-1) is going to take his place between the sticks when the Panthers visit the Oilers on Monday. The 34-year-old is allowing 3.62 goals per game this season with a .888 SV% and no shutouts.
C Aleksander Barkov (illness) and LW Anthony Duclair (Achilles) are out indefinitely and will not play on Monday against Edmonton.
Oilers edged the Rangers on the road
The Edmonton Oilers (11-10-0-0, and 10-11 ATS) are back home from a three-game road trip on which they suffered a couple of losses. Still, the Oilers managed to conclude that trip with a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers, and it was a terrific comeback W that could turn the season around for Edmonton.
Namely, the Oilers were 3-0 down after the first two periods, while the Rangers also had a couple of disallowed goals. Edmonton did attempt just eight shots in the final 20 minutes but scored four goals to secure a precious win. Evan Bouchard scored a pair of goals, while Ryan McLeod recorded three assists. For the year, the Oilers’ two best players are also among the best five in the NHL with 68 points combined. Connor McDavid leads the league with 36 (G 16, A 20), while Leon Draisaitl has 32 points (G 12, A 20).
Jack Campbell is expected to start at the goal for Edmonton when they welcome Florida on Monday. The 30-year-old is surrendering 4.04 goals per contest with a .875 SV% and no shutouts.
G Mike Smith (undisclosed), LW Evander Kane (wrist), and Kailer Yamamoto (undisclosed) are out and will not feature on Monday against the Panthers.
- 1-4 in the last five overall
- 0-4 in the last four vs. Western Conference rivals
- 2-6 in the last eight road games
- 10-3 in the last 13 when their opponent allows five goals or more in their previous game
- 5-1 in the last six vs. Atlantic Division opponents
Florida Panthers vs. Edmonton Oilers Pick
Edmonton has one of the weakest defenses in the NHL that is allowing 3.57 goals per game, but in this particular matchup, I’m backing the Oilers’ dynamic duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl to lead the team to victory. The Oilers already beat the Panthers this season and considering that Florida is not playing well on the road (six losses in the previous eight games), I believe the hosts are closer to a get W on Monday. Edmonton is the second-best when it comes to power-play situations (30.7%), while Florida is not even in the top 20 in penalty kills (76.3%), which is also a reason I am going with the Oilers.
Pick: Take the Oilers to win (-110)
Sergei Bobrovsky and Jack Campbell are not playing well right now; Bobrovsky allowed nine goals in his last two starts and is surrendering 4.38 goals per game in November, while Campbell conceded 13 in his previous three starts. He allows 4.18 gpg this month, and I would be surprised if the rivals don’t score at least three goals apiece against these goaltenders. Over is 4-1 in the last five H2H meetings in Edmonton; Over is 6-0 in the Panthers’ previous six overall, while Over is 4-0 in Florida’s last four road games.
Pick: Go Over 7 goals (-110)
