Edmonton Oilers: -150

The Edmonton Oilers are the clear favorites for tonight’s matchup against the Anaheim Ducks. The team added Mike Green, Andreas Athanasiou, and Tyler Ennis to their lineup, and with the return of Connor McDavid, they already look like the stronger, more proven team.

The Anaheim Ducks made a few moves themselves during the trade deadline. However, more of their players are unproven. It’s going to be a learning process for all of them over the next few games. Nevertheless, the team could still come out strong with an influx of new players. It’s definetly going to be an interesting game, and it’s one you shouldn’t miss.
