    And now today's Pick The Winner: 2 UNIT = Edmonton Oilers @ Washington Capitals - OVER 5.5 GOALS (-115) (Note: I am risking 2.00 units to win 1.74) I took yesterday off, but cashed an easy winner Saturday night in the Penguins/Lightning game on the over. That is what I have came to know these past few months, easy winners. I look to continue that with another winning wager on Canadian Thanksgiving. It was a positive weekend for me overall in all sports, which I hope carries over into the middle of October. With a bunch of goals being scored early on this season, I think I found another game that will bring in an over bet. The Edmonton Oilers have gotten off to a frustrating start to the season, well so have the Capitals actually. My pick tonight features two teams that have been on the losing end more often than not early on in 2013. The Oilers are coming off a disastrous defeat after allowing the Leafs to tie it up with seconds remaining, and then going on to losing it in overtime. Scoring goals this year haven't been the Oilers problems, but Devan Dubnyk and company have had plenty avoiding goals. Dubnyk now has a record of 0-3-1 on the year with a GAA of 5.43! Watching him last season there were signs that he isn't going to be a long-term option for the Oilers, but a short-term fix. That was certainly on display Saturday evening, as the Toronto Maple Leafs lit him up for six goals. The Oilers do however have several offensive minded play makers in their lineup, defense forget about it, but offensively they can do some damage. The Oilers may opt to go with Jason LaBarera, who may provide a little bit of relief, but still, the Oilers are allowing five goals per game no matter who is in net. This is a perfect opportunity for the Capitals to get their offense in check against a team that has no idea how to keep it out. I like some goals to be scored in this one to make for the most entertaining game of Monday. ==================================================== Good luck everyone! Get your picks in!
