Tuesday NHL Betting Online – Edmonton at Phoenix

There is only one game on Tuesday in NHL betting online action as the Phoenix Coyotes host the Edmonton Oilers.

The Coyotes are solid favorites in NHL betting at the Sbg global sportsbook against a poor Edmonton squad.

Quick Turnaround
The Oilers and Coyotes met just a few days ago on Friday when the Coyotes won in an overtime shootout at Edmonton by a score of 4-3.  The Coyotes then went into Vancouver and won 3-2 on Sunday while the Oilers shocked everyone and went into Anaheim and won 4-2 on Sunday.

Leaking Oil
The win by Edmonton at Anaheim was a huge surprise because Edmonton has simply been a rotten team this season. The Oilers at least have shown a little bit of life as they lost in overtime to this Phoenix team and then went and beat the Ducks. It is still a bad Edmonton team though.  They have problems all over the ice.  Goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin has seen his best days and is not very good.  The goalie they should be playing on a regular basis is Devan Dubnyk and they did that last time out and he got the win at Anaheim.

Red-Hot Coyotes
Phoenix is playing better than they have all season. They are starting to look like the team that won 50 games last year. The Coyotes have won six straight overall and it is tough to go against them right now. The Coyotes are averaging almost four goals per game during their winning streak. Ilya Bryzgalov is playing well in goal and he was great last season against the Oilers as he was 3-1-0 with a 2.69 goals-against average.
