Rejuvenated Golden Knights Favored At Home Vs Oilers

Edmonton Oilers vs Vegas Golden Knights NHL

The Vegas Golden Knights (12-8-0) host the Edmonton Oilers (14-5-0) on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. Both teams come into the contest with three wins in their last four games with Edmonton having the upper hand in the season series thanks to a 5-3 victory over Vegas on October 22.

Edmonton Oilers vs Vegas Golden Knights
  • Date/Time: November 27, 7:00 p.m. ET
  • Arena: T-Mobile Arena
  • Opening Odds: Golden Knights -120 | O/U 6 (Line History)
  • Oilers vs Golden Knights (Matchup Report)

Opening Odds Analysis

The Golden Knights come into the affair as the home favorite at -120 on the moneyline, while the Oilers are getting +100 as the underdog. The total is set at 6 goals with the UNDER going 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Oilers News & Notes

The Oilers picked up a 5-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday thanks to big performances from their stars. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl tallied two goals and two assists each while goaltender Mikko Koskinen made 24 saves in the victory.

Draisaitl and McDavid continue to light the league on fire, sitting first and second in scoring with 40 and 36 points, respectively. Draisaitl (20-20-40) is averaging over two points per game while scoring over a goal per game – the latter being something that no Oilers skater other than Wayne Gretzky has ever accomplished.

On the injury front, Duncan Keith (upper body) is questionable for Saturday’s game.

Golden Knights News & Notes

Vegas skated to a 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Wednesday as Chandler Stephenson (1-1-2) and captain Mark Stone (1-1-2) led the charge offensively. Robin Lehner made 26 stops on 28 shots to earn the win in net.

The Golden Knights were sluggish out of the gate this season as they started 1-4-0. Since then they’ve looked more like themselves, going 8-4 in the month of November. Stone has 1-4-5 in six games since returning to the lineup on November 13, while Max Pacioretty played and recorded an assist on Wednesday – his first game since October 14.

Alec Martinez (facial) and Jonathan Marchessault (COVID-19) are both questionable for Saturday.

How Edmonton Will Win

The Oilers have one gear and that’s full throttle offense. They sit third in the NHL in scoring at 3.79 goals per game while their power play ranks first at a whopping 39 percent. After being held off the score sheet for the first time this season on Tuesday against the Dallas Stars, McDavid immediately responded with a four-point outing. Smart money will be on McDavid and Draisaitl staying hot in Vegas.

How Vegas Will Win

With Stone and Pacioretty back in the lineup, the Golden Knights are finally getting healthy and starting to look like one of the best teams in the NHL again. Even without their two best offensive players for the bulk of the season, Vegas has scored at a decent clip of 3.15 goals per game. Meanwhile the Oilers have been leaky defensively, allowing 3.00 goals against per game, and that’s something Vegas may be able to take advantage of.
