Leaking Oilers Visit Motor City Red Wings: Edmonton vs Detroit Odds

Leaking Oilers Visit Motor City Red Wings: Edmonton vs Detroit Odds
On their way to an amazing 24th straight playoff appearance, Detroit welcomes Edmonton to the Motor City tonight. Puck drop for this Red Wings versus Oilers contest is 7:30 PM ET on March 9, 2015, at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, MI.

Detroit Red Wings: In need of some NHL playoff fine tuning

Though well positioned in the Eastern Conference race, the Wings need to be better defensively, on special teams, and play with a little more urgency. Detroit was the last team in the NHL to lose back-to-back games in regulation time when the Bruins bounced them 5-2 yesterday. The Wings gave up two power-play goals and Boston scored twice while they were short-handed on Sunday. Detroit was up 2-0 in their previous game against Calgary but lost 5-2 to the Flames on Friday night.

Edmonton Oilers: Keeping pace with Arizona Buffalo in the Draft Lottery battle

As compelling as some of the playoff races are, the Battle for the Basement is intriguing as well. Though Buffalo has had a Do Not Disturb sign out for the majority of the season – Edmonton and Arizona are both banging on the door and trying to get in. The ruler of the Cellar receives a 20% chance of landing “Next One” Connor McDavid in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. With all three teams having 16 games remaining, the Sabres have a four point “lead” on the Oilers and a six point bulge on the Coyotes in the CMCD Sweepstakes. Edmonton doesn’t deserve another #1 selection.

Red Wings vs Oilers Prediction: Whether tanking or not – this is an Oilers squad that’s been leaking loses all season long. Though three were against playoff contenders, Edmonton has lost four straight games by a 16-8 margin including a 7-4 crushing in Carolina yesterday. Detroit still has a decent shot at being the top seed in the East and they need to make hay versus non-contending clubs. We are riding the Red Wings with a 500 unit wager on the Bet365 puck line price.
