Flames vs. Oilers: The Battle of Alberta Prediction & Picks – October 15

By | October 15, 2022

The Battle of Alberta comes early on in the season as the 1-0 Flames travel to Edmonton to battle Connor McDavid and the 1-0 Oilers.

Being one of the best rivalries in hockey and a playoff rematch from last season, this matchup will not be void of drama.

PREDICTION

Both these teams are evenly matched all over the ice and that shows with the line. I could honestly see either team winning this game, and with these types of rivalries, it truly is a coin flip.

The Oilers bested the Flames in the playoffs last year and I could see the Flames coming out wanting to get revenge for that. But the Oilers are so deadly offensively that it is hard to bet against them.

Both of these teams put up 5 goals each in their first games, and let in 3 themselves. This is going to be a fast paced, physical, electric hockey game and I could see goals, and lots of them.

For the plus money, I love the over 7. Worst comes to worst, it pushes and you get your bet back. I am backing both of these offenses to put the puck in the net, and do it alot.

BEST BET

OVER 7 (+116)

PROPS

JACK CAMPBELL o27.5 SAVES (-126) FANDUEL

Campbell played pretty well against the Canucks on opening night, and got a lot of help from his offense.

He made a whopping 33 saves and I see the Flames wanting to come out firing to stick with the pace and offensive aggression of the Oilers.

The Flames only needed 22 shots against the Avs but the Oilers allow a ton more shots and the Flames will take them.

LEON DRAISAITL o1.5 POINTS (-106) FANDUEL

For the value, I love this play. Hard to argue betting on one of the best players in hockey to get his points, especially at -106.

He had 3 points in the Oilers first game and last season, he had 2+ points in three of the four matchups with the Flames.

He looks healthy and buzzing. For the value, you can’t beat it.

CONNOR McDAVID ATG (+112) FANDUEL

This is a no brainer bet.

He is coming off of a hat trick and loves playing at home. He is the best player in the world and at plus money, I will take this bet every game.

Set it and forget it.


The Battle of Alberta is one of the best events in hockey that isn’t the playoffs. I can’t wait to see these two great teams duke it out and hopefully score a bunch of goals. I hope you enjoy it too.
