Boston Bruins at Edmonton Oilers odds, picks and predictions

The Boston Bruins (33-12-11) and the Edmonton Oilers (33-18-1) meet Wednesday at Rogers Place. Puck drop is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET (TNT). Below, we analyze BetMGM Sportsbook’s lines around the Bruins vs. Oilers odds, and make our expert NHL picks and predictions.

The Bruins kick off a 4-game road trip through Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Boston posted a 4-3 win in a shootout against the Dallas Stars on Saturday, and 3 of their past 4 games have needed overtime or a shootout to determine a winner.

The B’s have re-discovered their offense after a brief power outage. Speaking of which, this is a rematch of the 1988 Stanley Cup Final, best known for a power failure in Game 4 at the old Boston Garden. Anyway, Boston has 8 goals in the past 2 games after tallying just 8 markers in a 5-game span from Feb. 6-15.

The Oilers doubled up the Arizona Coyotes 6-3 on Monday, covering the puck line as a road favorite (-270). The Oilers are 3-1-0 across the past 4 games, averaging a healthy 5.3 goals per game (GPG), while allowing 4.0 GPG. It’s no surprise the Over is 4-for-4 in that stretch.
