There is one thing to keep in mind about the free selections on this page. They are just a small taste of what our experts have to offer. While the free plays are still expected to win, they are not the strongest plays from each expert. Their best bets of the day are for their premium clients.

Game Analysis

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach Free Pick NHL Tuesday Edmonton Oilers Money Line (+) @ St Louis Blues @ 8:05 ET - The Oilers seek revenge for a 4-1 home loss to the Blues last week. St Louis also has a huge divisional game versus the Predators on deck. Edmonton has been struggling this season and come into this one off of back to back losses. However, the Oilers are on a perfect 3-0 run the last 3 times they've entered a game off of consecutive losses. In other words, odds are good that Edmonton again "stops the bleeding" by getting back on track with an upset win over the Blues tonight. St Louis is playing well but this is their first game back on home ice after a successful 3-game road trip. A lot of time that first game back is the toughest and I expect that to prove to again be the case here. The Blues are tied with the Lightning for most wins in the NHL while the Oilers have more wins than only 2 teams in the entire league. Only the Sabres and Coyotes have fewer wins than Edmonton so far this season. In other words, how can the Oilers be such a small dog here on the road at St Louis given those facts? Exactly! Think about that for a second and don't fall into what will prove to be a trap line for most public bettors! Free Pick on EDMONTON OILERS
