Surprising Oilers Have the Ducks on the Ropes

The Anaheim Ducks boast a ton of playoff experience and the Edmonton Oilers haven’t been in the postseason in a decade. It hasn’t mattered so far in the conference semifinals series, as the Oil possess a 2-0 lead ahead of Sunday’s Game 2 in Alberta. Sportsbooks opened the Oilers as -140 home favorites with a total of 5.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-2-2 in the last 9 meetings.
  • The Oilers are 11-1 in their last 12 home games.
  • The Ducks are 5-2 in their last 7 road games.

After going 15-0-3, the five-time reigning Pacific Division champions have been completely outplayed by the young Oilers. Edmonton goaltender Cam Talbot has turned aside 126 of 134 shots en route to winning five in a row. The netminder has allowed one goal or fewer in four of the last seven games.

Ducks goaltender John Gibson rebounded from a four-goal showing in the series opener by stopping 21 shots in Game 2, but he did allow his ninth power-play goal of the playoffs. Anaheim has lost all seven playoff series in which it lost the first two games, so they’ll be in tough to buck that trend going forward.

UNDER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank when these teams collide in Edmonton, as the UNDER is 4-1-1 in the last six contests between the Oilers and Ducks in Canada.
