Edmonton Oilers Moneyline (+120, ESPN BET)

We might be crazy for doing this, but we’re riding with the Oilers in tonight’s matchup. Yes, the Panthers dominated them in the first three games of the series, but after seeing their performance in Game 4, the Oilers showed that they still have confidence.

With their star-studded lineup in mind, we are certainly taking the Oilers to win tonight, especially seeing the amount of juice we get on this line.

Total Goals UNDER 5.5 (-105, ESPN Bet)

Recency bias might make a lot of people take the over on this line. After all, the total score in Game 4 was nine points, which is fresh in their minds.

However, given the low point totals and elite goalkeeping in the other games in the series, we’re going to take the under here.

Connor McDavid OVER 3.5 Shots

If the Oilers want any chance of winning tonight, they’ll need a massive performance out of their star player, Connor McDavid. McDavid is viewed as one of the best players in the NHL.

He’ll need to act like it tonight for the Oilers to stretch the series to Game 6. This should be an easy Over!

Sergei Bobrovsky OVER .5 First Period Goals Allowed

This pick goes hand in hand with our McDavid analysis. We believe that he and his teammates are going to come out of the gates swinging, hungry to win another game in this series.

With that mentality in mind, we think Sergei Bobrovsky, the Panthers’ goalie, is going to surrender at least one goal in the first period to the Oilers.
