Oilers vs Stars NHL Final Betting Analysis

Oilers-Stars is a contrast in styles. Edmonton allows the same amount of goals, 3.1, that they score per. That puts the Oilers in a tough situation on Tuesday night. Even if they reach their per goal average, they must hope that the home squad doesn’t get their offense going.

Dallas is 1-3 SU in their last 4. There’s a chance the Stars fail again. But, it’s not likely. 2 of the 3 losses happened on the road. The other loss? It occurred versus defending champion St. Louis. Now back at home, the Stars should play well enough to get past the Oilers. The fact that the Stars are 13-3 in their last 16 after 2 days rest helps the cause.
