We can’t believe we are saying these words: if the Edmonton Oilers win, they will finally get to see the Stanley Cup. It’s been a long time coming since the arrival of Connor McDavid but they finally seem to have built a team capable of going all the way.

Just one game stands between them and the Stanley Cup finals, and tonight we are betting at top-rated sportsbooks for this to be a cagey affair in Edmonton.

Dallas Stars vs. Edmonton Oilers

Sunday, June 02, 2024 – 08:00 PM ET at Rogers Place

Against the Trend

Sports betting doesn’t always mean going with the trend. In fact, we bet on the over trend in the first two games at Rogers Place. On both occasions, we hit a winner, but tonight the circumstances are different and we feel this could be a cagey affair with not much quarter given.

All the games that have taken place in Dallas went under the total but all the games in Edmonton went over the total. Tonight, the Stars need to win to stay alive in the playoffs. Their first protocol in this game should be shutting down the Oilers from scoring.

Edmonton will be happy with a win here no matter what the scoreline. Since they won’t have to worry about facing the Stars again, they can concentrate on the finals with a victory.

The Pick

Edmonton came away as 3-1 winners last time out, and we can see a similar scoreline taking place tonight. If this wasn’t a win-or-go-home game for Dallas, we would likely side with the over. However, with so much at stake, it’s hard to see why either team would want to overexpose themselves defensively.

We believe the Oilers can win tonight but their NHL odds are not worth the value at -130 on the moneyline. Dallas is dangerous and remember a win tonight gives the Stars the advantage in the series. Let’s bet on a low-scoring affair for Game 6 in the Western Conference Finals.
