Oilers trying to break out vs Stars

The Edmonton Oilers are hoping to snap out of their funk Thursday when they host the Dallas Stars. The reeling Oilers are 1-6 SU in their last seven and are desperate to get back in the win column at Rogers Place.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Edmonton’s last 9 games.
  • The Stars are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Dallas’ last 6 games in Edmonton.

Although the Oilers’ record has been awful to start the season, their last three games have been encouraging as they only lost by one goal each time. Their competition in those matchups was against some top dogs like Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Chicago. It’s a potential sign of a turnaround coming for Oil Country and the -115 moneyline is the smart play for bettors.

The total is set at 6 for this Western Conference matchup and bettors should take advantage of the UNDER. Edmonton has only scored 15 goals in eight games this season, good for dead last in the NHL. And it’s not like the Stars have been firing on all cylinders either, ranking 20th in the league this season with 2.89 goals per game. Opening at -115, consider placing a wager on the UNDER and get yourself a payout.

Puckline bettors must be frustrated with Dallas this season, as they’re having a hard time cashing a winning ticket. The Stars are 0-5 ATS in five games on the road this season and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 dating back to last season. Dallas has been on a rough stretch since they led the Western Conference standings in 2015-16. Placing a wager on Edmonton to secure the puckline victory may be the right choice as they’re 4-1 ATS in their last five against Dallas.
