Edmonton Oilers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning NHL Betting Odds (02-23-2022)

On the whole, few sports can produce a sudden jolt like an NHL coaching change. Edmonton is the latest proof of that phenomenon with the NHL betting odds. Edmonton didn’t want to fire head coach Dave Tippett. However, the Oilers ran out of options. Despite numerous chances, Tippett could not get the Oilers going. Jay Woodcroft was named Tippett’s replacement on February 10 and won his first five games behind the bench. As a result, Edmonton was back into the Western Conference playoff race. However, Woodcroft’s Oilers face their toughest assignment yet at Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Edmonton Oilers at Tampa Bay Lightning SBG Odds Overview

On this occasion, we get the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions hosting one of the hottest teams on the board. Tampa Bay has a sportsbook level of credibility that few teams in any sport can match. Further, the Lightning remains one of the best teams in the NHL. Edmonton has been considered one of the NHL’s teams of the future. Certainly, Connor McDavid feeds into that perception. Still, gamblers want more proof that this current surge will last.

Edmonton Oilers Team Overview

The Oilers have won six of their most recent eight games. And then five of their last seven went under the total. Edmonton is 28-18-3 straight up, 23-24 over/under. Overall, the Oilers rank 10th for goal scoring, 3rd for power-play efficiency, 22nd for goals against, and 22nd for penalty killing.
