NHL free pick on the
Vancouver Canucks as they take on Edmonton Oilers set to start at 9:00 PM ET.
My proprietary sports handicapping database and simulator shows a
high probability that the Vancouver Canucks will win this game easily. Vancouver was
defeated by Edmonton in their last game, but that may have been in large part
due to a huge let down from clinching the best record in the NHL and winning
the President’s Trophy.
The Canucks own a franchise record nine game road winning streak
and they will certainly want to avenge their pathetic performance in their last
Edmonton may have won in their last game against Vancouver, but
they arguably are the worst team in the NHL. They are dead last in the Western
Conference with just 58 points sporting a 24-43-11 overall record. They are
12-21-6 in home games this season.
Supporting this graded play is a system that has produced a
record of 34-14 making 23.8 units in profits per one unit wagered for 71%
winners since 2005. Play
on road teams against the money line revenging a home blowout loss to this
opponent of three goals or more and is a good team winning 60 to 70% or more of
their games on the season. This system
has posted a strong 7-3 mark making 4.6 units per one unit wagered this season.
The simulator shows a high probability that Vancouver will hold the Edmonton Oilers to two or fewer goals in this game. In past games where Vancouver has
allowed two or fewer goals they are 40-6 making 31.8 units this season, 118-15
making 103 units spanning the past three seasons, and 434-88 making 373 units
since 1996. In past games where Edmonton scored two or fewer goals they have
posted a miserable 4-42 mark losing 37.4 units this season, 12-113 losing 106
units spanning the past three seasons, and 82-450 losing 437.6 units since
Alain Vigneault is 12-1 against the money line making 14.1 units per one
unit wagered in road games off a home loss by two goals or more as the coach of
Vancouver; 32-14 against the money line making 18.6 units per one unit wagered
revenging a blowout loss versus opponent of three goals or more.
