Vancouver vs Edmonton: prediction for the NHL preseason match
The Vancouver Canucks played two home games recently. In the first match, they beat Winnipeg 3:2; Horvat and Pearson each scored a goal and gave an assist. The Canucks couldn't build on their success and suffered a crushing defeat from Seattle (0:4). Goaltender Demko had a bad game and stooped only 84% of the shots. After that, Vancouver paid a visit to Edmonton and lost with a score of 2:3.
The Edmonton Oilers look great in the preseason and won 4 out of 6 games. The Oilers lost to Winnipeg (1:5) and Seattle (1:2 OT). In the return game against the Jets, Edmonton got revenge with a score (4:3); forward Puljujärvi scored a double for the Oilers. At home, the Oilers outplayed Calgary (4: 3). McDavid and Draisaitl earned two points each. After that, Edmonton extended the winning streak to three games, defeating Vancouver (3:2).
The teams failed to score in each period in 2 out of 3 head-to-head games.
Edmonton scored first in 3 head-to-head games in a row.
Edmonton are in good shape; Vancouver, on the other hand, are showing poor results in the preseason. We believe that the Oilers have a better chance to win here.
Our prediction - Edmonton to win with a handicap (0)
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Edmonton

We do not expect a high-scoring game. The two sides rarely score a large number of goals in head-to-head matches.
Second bet - total under 6.5 goals
