With the hockey betting playoffs just around the corner the action is heating up and the bet on hockey odds are tightening. One game for fans to keep an eye on is the Oilers versus the Mighty Ducks as both of these teams scramble to secure a hockey betting playoff spot before it’s too late.
Bet on hockey fans have seen these two teams struggle to remain relevant all year. In the second half of the season Edmonton has fought hard to regain respectability and has battle back from last place in the Northwest division to within one point of capturing the eighth and final hockey betting playoff spot in the Western Conference. But the Oilers are 3-2-5 over their last 10 bet on hockey match ups and desperately need a win on the road to keep their playoff hopes alive.
The defense has been respectable allowing just 210 goals but the offense has not held up its end of the bargain netting just 192 goals so far in the bet on hockey season. Ales Hemsky has been the go to man with 56 points but he gets very little help from the rest of the front line.
But if the Oilers are desperate for a bet on hockey win the Ducks are beyond words for a win. This is a team that is currently in the 12th spot in the Western division fighting for one of only eight bet on hockey playoff spots in the conference. But the team is just three points behind the Oilers and could even overtake the team in the bet on hockey standing by the time they meet up.
The Ducks have been one of the best defensive teams in the NHL bet on hockey action, third best in the Western Conference with only 201 goals allowed. But that hasn’t translated to wins in the bet on hockey odds as the offense has struggled, netting just 190 goals. In a battle of two stout defenses expect the bet on hockey lines to be low on this game. The main advantage in this show down is the home ice which will benefit the Ducks and should move the team one step closer to locking up a bet on hockey playoff spot.
