Edmonton Oilers vs Dallas Stars Prediction

The Dallas Stars and the plus money is worth a serious look given their success on the road all year and in these playoffs. The Stars have 32 road wins, so I wouldn’t talk you off the ledge if looking at the more favorable price. With that said, the Oilers have played their best hockey of the series in their last two games as they’ve dug deep defensively, and the offense has found timely results. At home, the Rogers Place is going to be rocking, and it feels like the Oilers have all of the momentum. I’d love to see a game 7, but the price is reasonably cheap. I’ll ride the hot hand and side with the Oilers to make their first finals trip in nearly two decades.
