We were just a leg away from hitting back-to-back Same Game Parlays for Game 1 and Game 2 of the 2024 NHL Western Conference Finals, and while almost doesn’t count, we can make it 2 of 3 with tonight’s matchup between the Dallas Stars and Edmonton Oilers. So, let’s not waste any time and get into our best Stars vs Oilers Same Game Parlay picks for Game 3.

Along with our NHL Same Game Parlay picks, be sure to check out all of our NHL predictions for today’s action!

Oilers ML (-130)

Over 5.5 goals (-115)

Leon Draisaitl over 0.5 assists (-135)

Parlay odds +315

Edmonton Oilers ML (-130) over Dallas Stars

One aspect of our Stars vs Oilers Prediction & Same Game Parlay picks that has not faltered has been simply predicting a winner. We took the Oilers as slight road underdogs in Game 1, the Stars to bounce back in Game 2 and now we’re focused on Edmonton yet again. First and foremost, with it being Game 3, that means that the series heads up to Canada. Home ice should have the team reinvigorated following a loss that was very up-in-the-air for most of the game. The Oilers struck first in the electric first period but failed to score again. 

While that led to a multi-goal loss, it was a 1-1 game for the majority of the matchup. If you weren’t able to see, Dallas’ second goal was one of the strangest deflections of the entire postseason, and the goal that ultimately made it a 3-1 victory was just an empty netter. With that in mind, we’d even be willing to take the Oilers puck line as a standalone play for those late empty-net goals. Regardless, the first leg of our Stars vs Oilers Prediction & Same Game Parlay picks is on Edmonton’s regular money line.

Over 5.5 goals (-115)

The leg that held us back in Game 2 was the one focused on the total. After correctly predicting an under for Game 1, the over wasn’t able to cash in Game 2. It was certainly on pace to do so with both teams scoring within 45 seconds of each other early in the first period. However, some improbable saves in the second slowed down the scoring, but they were ones that we don’t expect to see again tonight. 

Advanced metrics would suggest that we’re correct in that, as the expected goals for Game 2 were over 6. So, oddsmakers lowering this total from the first 2 games is only doing us a favor. Not only that, but each of the first 2 games between these teams this season saw 7 goals scored, and the most recent was a 5-0 matchup – we don’t expect either of these star-powered teams to be shutout, making that much more of an outlier.

Leon Draisaitl over 0.5 assists (-135)

Speaking of star-powered teams, when it comes to the player props market, there is no shortage of options. Of course, most fans will immediately think of Connor McDavid and rightfully so. If you insist on focusing on the world’s best skater, we’d suggest a standalone play of over 1.5 assists at some great plus-money odds. As for our Stars vs Oilers Prediction & Same Game Parlay picks, we’re going to back his partner in crime to do the same, but with just 1 assist needed. 

There’s no denying that Leon Draisaitl is more than capable of finding the back of the net himself, but he’s no stranger to sending out helpers as well. Not only are his 25 points this postseason the most in the league, but 16 of them have been assists. With how well guys like Zach Hyman are shooting the puck, Draisaitl has plenty of options around him. Even if he does score a goal himself, don’t be surprised to see him record at least 1 of each in an Oilers bounce-back win.
