Edmonton Oilers vs Vancouver Canucks Prediction

The Edmonton Oilers are getting the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home, where they’re 30-10-5 on the season. However, the value remains with the Canucks and the big plus money. For whatever reason, the Canucks aren’t getting love from oddsmakers, but yet they have 56 wins on the season and continue to be stingy defensively. The Canucks have also won 6 of the last 7 games against the Oilers, and the one loss during that span was a game 2 loss in overtime. We’re getting more than 1.5 times our money with a Canucks team that’s owned the Oilers over the last couple of seasons. Hard for me to pass up the Canucks in game 4 at this price point.
