Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars

Friday, May 31, 2024 – 08:30 PM ET at American Airlines Center

Things To Tighten Up in Dallas

The first two games of this series were tight with just 5 and 4 goals scored in the opening two games. Since then, the floodgates have opened with 8 and 7 goals in each of the previous two games.

Tonight, however, the Dallas Stars are back on home ice and we have found an under line that we like very much. Now that the series is heading back to Dallas, we aim to push the total to go under, knowing things will open up with the Oilers on home ice.

The Pick

Dallas knows their best chance of winning this series is keeping the scores as low as possible because, when it turns into a shootout, the Oilers have the advantage with some of the best forwards in the league.

We really like the odds on the under 6.0 line at -130 for this matchup. At the very least, we get a push and our stake back if the game ends on six goals.

There’s always that chance we see seven goals here. However, we are willing to take our chances that this might be another low-scoring affair in Dallas. Take the under 6 here. Also, if you’re feeling bold and brave, note that the under 5.5 in +110 NHL betting odds.
