(NHL) Edmonton vs. Vegas, 11/27/2021 7:00 PM, Score: 3 - 2
Total: 6.50 | -118.00 Under
Result: Win
This is a 10* TOP TOTAL on the UNDER Oilers/Knights.

Both teams have done well this year. Edmonton has won 14 of its 19 games so far, while Vegas has won 12 of 20.

The Oilers are averaging 3.79 GPG, which is near the tops of the league. Their defense hasn't been quite as good, conceding 3.00 GPG.

The Knights average 3.15 GPG. Last year they were No. 1 defensively, but this season they've taken a step back in that department, as they concede 3.05 GPG.

But betting totals, for the most part in our opinion, is about betting "situations" and "spots."

Just looking at this game on paper, of course all the numbers point to a higher-scoring game.

But I say this number is too high for this one. I expect more of a defensive affair between these two-high scoring clubs.

Note that Edmonton has seen the total go UNDER the number in five of its last six after scoring five or more goals in a two goals or greater road victory in its last outing (won 5-3 at Arizona), while Vegas has seen the total go UNDER in eight of its last 11 in the same position (won 5-2 at Nashville on the 24th.)

This number is high, the play is the UNDER.

Good luck, NP
