Game Odds Forecast March 15-21

NHL: Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports

After a great week, which saw the Oilers go 3-1, albeit against inferior competition, the Oilers face some tougher teams this week, with a pair of games against both Calgary and Winnipeg on the docket. Let’s see what my model thinks about these games:

March 15 @ Calgary Flames:

Oilers (50%), Flames (50%)

Bet365 odds: Flames (1.80), Oilers (2.05)

Implied odds: Flames (53%), Oilers (47%)

It looks like there may be a little value on the Oilers as underdogs tonight. The Flames are on a bit of a heater since their coaching change, but the Oilers have played well against them this year, and I like the odds that my model is spitting out for this game, which isn’t always the case.

March 17 @ Calgary Flames:

Oilers (50%), Flames (50%)

Can the Oilers have the luck of the Irish and win a toss up in Calgary? Sure, why not?

March 18 - Winnipeg Jets @ Edmonton Oilers:

Oilers (57%), Jets (43%)

March 20 - Winnipeg Jets @ Edmonton Oilers:

Oilers (57%), Jets (43%)

Meanwhile, in CondorsTown...

The Condors are on an unreal heater right now. Since the start of March, they’re 6-0, and have outscored their opponents 27-9. Let’s take a look at their upcoming games:

March 16 - Bakersfield Condors @ San Jose Barracuda:

Condors (72%), Barracuda (28%)

March 17 - Bakersfield Condors @ San Jose Barracuda:

Condors (72%), Barracuda (28%)

March 20 - Ontario Reign @ Bakersfield Condors:

Condors (84%), Reign (16%)

March 21 - Ontario Reign @ Bakersfield Condors:

Condors (84%), Reign (16%)

These odds are probably a little, or possibly very outlandishly lopsided, but I still would still imagine that the Condors are a decent bet unless they’re lower than 2.00 on the Puck Line (-1.5) in these games.
