Score: 0 - 3
Total: -125/+5½ Under
Detroit & Edmonton under 5.5
The Detroit Red Wings host the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday. Detroit is coming off a 2-1 win over Colorado, while Edmonton dropped their last game to Columbus in a shootout, 4-3.
The Red Wings have played under the total in six of their last seven games, largely due to the improved play of goaltender Jimmy Howard.
Howard has allowed only seven goals over his last five starts, stopping 95.4 percent of the shots he faced, and recording his first shutout of the season over that stretch of games.
Edmonton has not fared well when making the trip out to Detroit, recording only one win in their last nine visits.
In their last four games at Joe Louis Arena, the Oilers have scored only four times.
Devan Dubnyk has started each of the last four games for Edmonton on their current road trip. He’s racked up a .931 save percentage against Detroit in his career.
Dubnyk’s split stats tell a different tale than what you might expect to see from a young goaltender, as his GAA is more than a full goal lower on the road than it is at home, and his save percentage is also forty points higher in road contests.
The under is 4-0 in Detroit’s last four games overall, while Edmonton has played under the total in nine of their last 10 games against teams with a winning home record. Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
