Edmonton Oilers vs. Arizona Coyotes Pick – NHL November 24, 2021

The Edmonton Oilers and Arizona Coyotes are in the desert at Gila River Arena on Wednesday night. The Oilers are looking for a better effort after a 4-1 loss last night in Dallas. It’s a short flight to Phoenix from Texas, and the Oilers hope to have a better perspective in this one.

Stuart Skinner got the nod in the crease for the Oilers last night. Skinner allowed 4 goals on 33 shots for a 0.879 save percentage. It was a lackluster performance from Skinner, but his offense did nothing to support him.

The usually hot Oilers’ offense failed to get on track, as Ryan McLeod was the only Oiler to get on the score sheet. They were unable to generate much activity around Jake Oettinger’s net. The Oilers put 22 shots on net with Oettinger coming up big despite the lack of action.

With the loss, the Oilers slipped to 13-5-0 on the season and remain at 26 points in the Pacific Division. Their Albertan rivals have bypassed the Oilers and are up in the division with a record of 12-3-5 and 29 points. I think Flames’ fans are staying cautiously optimistic with this club, though. They’ve seen it all before.

The Coyotes are coming off a 2-1 win in overtime against the LA Kings. The Kings looked like the better team in that one, but a 3rd period goal and standout performance from Karel Vejmelka put the Yotes back in the win column for the third time in four games.

They are up to 4-13-2 and 10 points on the season. That’s good for dead last in the Central Division. The Coyotes aren’t going to do much of anything this season, but at least they’re showing signs of life recently. Clayton Keller needs some help for Coyotes to get going forward.

For a win against the Oilers, they might have to be better than they were in their 2-1 win over the Kings. They were outplayed and have an Oilers team coming off a bad performance. Head below for our free Oilers vs. Coyotes pick on November 24, 2021.

Oilers vs. Coyotes Prediction:

The Oilers looked flat last night, and sometimes the best for a team is to get right back out on the ice after a performance like that. They are certainly capable of a much better effort than what we saw in Dallas.

Stuart Skinner got the start last night, so expect to see Mikko Koskinen between the pipes. The Oilers’ could offer more defensively. They are 19th in the NHL with 3 goals against per game.

Injuries are playing a leading role in why the defense has been behind the 8-ball, but the healthy members of the blueline have to do their part. Koskinen is going into the desert with a 2.96 GAA and 0.91 save percentage.

Despite the mediocre numbers, Koskinen has received solid goal support, as he sports a record of 9-2-0. Against an offensively inept Arizona team, look for Koskinen and the Oilers’ defense to look better on Wednesday night.


Edmonton Oilers vs. Arizona Coyotes Betting Trends:

Oilers

  • 11-2 overall in their previous 13 games versus the Western Conference
  • 15-6 overall in their previous 21 games as a favorite on the road
  • 37-16 overall in their previous 53 games as a favorite
  • 6-0 overall in their previous six games after scoring 2 or less goals
  • UNDER is 4-1 in their previous five games as a road favorite

Coyotes

  • 17-35 overall in their previous 52 games after a win
  • 9-27 overall in their previous 36 games
  • 2-8 overall in their previous ten games in Arizona
  • 3-8 overall in their previous 11 games versus the Western Conference
  • 0-8 overall in their previous eight games on a Wednesday

The Coyotes have had a tough time putting the puck in the net. They don’t have much firepower and it shows.

Arizona is 32nd in the NHL with just 1.79 goals scored per game. The Coyotes are the only team in the NHL scoring less than 2 goals a game.

They have scored over 2 goals per game at home in Arizona, but their defense regresses at home. Overall, they aren’t good with 3.53 goals allowed per game for 30th in the league.

However, it goes from bad to terrible at home, as the Coyotes have conceded 4.14 goals per game at Gila River Arena. Expect the Oilers’ offense to come back to life tonight.

Following a difficult trip to Dallas last night, the Coyotes are just what the Oilers need the next day. I like a strong effort and win from the Oilers in regulation this evening.
