Free NHL Pick For Tonight Feb 15: Leafs vs. Oilers
Toronto Maple Leafs (1.98) vs. Edmonton Oilers (1.89); Total 5.5
10:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
Is the pressure of the playoff race getting to the Toronto Maple Leafs? I would say that yes it is definitely affecting them. The Leafs are coming off a 5-1 loss last night in Calgary and have now dropped 5 games in a row. It is not all bad as the Leafs had a ton of shots and scoring chances in last night’s game but just couldn’t beat Kipper. The good news for the Leafs is that they catch the Oilers returning from an East coast road trip. The bad news is that Edmonton has been a much better team on home ice. The Oilers have won 4 in a row on home ice with wins over the Red Wings, Sharks, Blackhawks, and Avalanche. Can the Leafs end their downward spiral with a win in Edmonton tonight?

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Edmonton Oilers Prediction:
This is a tough game for me. I don’t want to bet the Leafs becasue they have lost 5 in a row although their effort last night was definitely there. I like the way the Oilers are playing at home but don’t like that they are returning from the East coast. We saw the terrible start Toronto had last night travelling across the country. That leaves the total. The Total for this game is currenly 5.5 goals at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. Both these teams have been playing at a torrid pace and generating a ton of scoring chances. The Leafs could easily have scored 3 or 4 goals last night if not for Kipper in goal. I don’t think either team runs into a hot goalie tonight with Reimer and Khabibulin expected (not confirmed yet) to start. The last time an Oilers game went under the total was back on January 24, 2012 (7 games ago). I see there being a bunch of scoring chances and goals in this game. I’ll take the OVER 5.5 goals for 1.93 at 5 Dimes Sportsbook.
