However, Buffalo is 3-18 SU in its last 21 games and 1-8 SU in its last 9 games at home. Edmonton has the worst defense in the league allowing 3.7 goals per game.

What a game this will be right!? Hey, when you’re betting on a game every game you play is a big game and this one is no exception. Look, how can you determine who will win this game? Looking at the last two games Edmonton has not looked good at all giving up a combined nine goals. Buffalo on the other hand have played pretty tough beating Detroit and losing by a goal to Montreal. If that doesn’t help determine who to pick this will. Opening number for this game at 2.23 and now the number sits at 2.03. Has the value been sucked out of it already? Could be but at the end of the day as long as we pick a winner that is all that matters. 60% of all Off-Shore bettors are siding with the Oilers tonight and yet the line has moved the other way. So with “sharp” money looking to be on the Sabres and the fact that Sabres have looked better their last two games I’m rolling with them. Best of Luck!!!
