NHL Hockey - Preview

If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Sunday when the Anaheim Ducks and the Edmonton Oilers meet at Rexall Place.

Last time out for Anaheim, they were a 5-2 loser as they battled the Predators at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Predators at +175 were rewarded, while the 7 combined goals moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Edmonton won its last outing, a 3-2 result against the Coyotes on April 4. Bettors who backed the Oilers at +190 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
