Edmonton Oilers ML over Dallas Stars (-125)

Things were looking good for the Oilers with the series heading up to Canada, as they dominated the Stars in the first period of Game 3 and had a 2-0 lead to begin the second. However, Dallas rattled off 3 unanswered goals and never looked back. Although Edmonton tied the game at 3-3, it was Jason Robertson completing a hat-trick that led to the Stars shining brighter. So, can the Oilers bounce back? 

Well, when you have Connor McDavid on the ice, anything is possible. In that Game 3, he became the 4th-fastest skater in history to reach 100 playoff points, and the past few games have been abnormally quiet from fellow superstar Leon Draisaitl. Admittedly, we expected him to step up on Monday night, and while that wasn’t the case, it’s difficult to imagine him remaining in the dark for any longer. So, before the series heads back down to the Lone Star State, we’re anticipating that the Oilers can head down south with things tied at 2 games apiece.

Over 5.5 goals (-130)

If you’ve been following our Stars vs Oilers Same Game Parlay picks or SGPs for the Eastern Conference Finals, then you’ve seen us reference expected goals. It hasn’t steered us wrong yet, and frankly, it isn’t even needed to prove much after what we saw in Game 3. It was expected goals that led us to target a high-scoring game on Monday night, and we’re doing the same for tonight’s Game 4. 

Of course, McDavid and the Oilers speak for themselves, so it’s no surprise that their expected goals were just a shade under 4 in Game 3. We expect more of the same, as Edmonton ended the season as the 2nd-highest scoring team on home ice, which is where tonight’s game will be. If they want to even up the series, they’re going to have to test Dallas goaltender Jake Oettinger early and often, and outscore the likes of Wyatt Johnston, Jamie Benn and Jason Robertson.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over 0.5 assists (-115)

We’ve just mentioned several skaters, and truthfully, we’d have no issues sticking with Leon Draisaitl to close out our Stars vs Oilers Same Game Parlay picks. However, there is another skater that we expect more from, and that would be Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. After recording the first 100-point campaign of his career last season, he’s beginning to become a well-known name for even casual hockey fans. 

More importantly, he was a primary reason that the Oilers were able to win Game 6 and Game 7 against the Vancouver Canucks to reach this point, as Nugent-Hopkins recorded 5 points across those 2 games. In total, he’s recorded 17 points this postseason, and 13 of them have been assists. So, look for him to link up with Draisaitl, McDavid and Zach Hyman to get back in the box score in a high-scoring Edmonton victory.
