Vancouver Canucks vs Edmonton Oilers Prediction

I’m on the Canucks here. I’m just at a point where I’m not laying juice just because it’s the Oilers. IF the game was in Edmonton, that’s one thing as the Oilers play much better hockey on home ice. But the Canucks have been solid at home in their own right and have been getting disrespected by oddsmakers all series long. I’m going to hop back on the horse with Vancouver here so give me the Canucks and the plus money.
