Having won Game 1 during overtime the Edmonton Oilers are looking to go 2-0 on the road in the Western Conference Finals.

The Oilers have not made a Stanley Cup Finals under star player Connor McDavid, and they made a promising start in Game 1. It’s all to play for in this series but we like the plus money on the NHL odds at the top sportsbooks for the Oilers to win yet again in Dallas.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars

Saturday, May 25, 2024 – 08:00 PM ET at American Airlines Center

Trinity Strike in First Game Victory

It took the Edmonton Oilers until after regulation to pull off the win in Game 1 of the series on the road with their three top goalscorers this season all finding the back of the net once each as Draisaitl, Hyman, and McDavid lead their team to victory.

It’s Game 2 and anything can happen, many will expect a Dallas Stars to fight back, especially on home ice but we must take note the Oilers have had a good success rate in Dallas in recent games having won 5 of the previous 10.

Will the triple threat strike again? Who knows but one thing is for sure, the Stars are going to have their work cut out trying to keep them and their coworkers quiet for sixty minutes.

Pick #1

We are loving the value on Draisaitl to see 2+ points in tonight’s game at +125, Leon Draisaitl is the leading points scorer this post-season having had 25 points in 13 games, an average of almost 2 points per game.

Draisaitl is on a 13-game scoring streak and has had 2 or more points in 9 of those 13 games, his odds to see 2+ points tonight should be a minimum of +100 in our opinion.

If we want to talk about 9 in 13 as a percentage, he should be around -200 to see 2+ points with a 69% hit rate. But add on the fact that it’s on the road to the Western Conference finals, we would bump it up to +100.

NHL Pick: Leon Draisaitl Over 1.5 Points (+125) at BetOnline

Pick #2

This is a 50/50 game in our opinion, either team can win on the night, and despite the fact Edmonton are on the road, we still like their odds to win on the moneyline at +120, a bet we would happily bet down to as low as +105.

The Oilers will be gunning for a win here to take a 2-0 series lead back to Edmonton for the next two games.
