NHL Betting Prediction: Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks Game 7 5/20/2024

Edmonton Oilers (49-27-6) vs. Vancouver Canucks (50-23-9)

As the NHL playoffs rush toward an exhilarating conclusion, Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks will square off in Game 7 of Western Conference’s second round on May 20, 2024 at Rogers Arena. Both teams have displayed formidable prowess this season; although Vancouver edged out Edmonton slightly with regards to overall wins. At 3-3 in their series against each other, fans and bettors alike are eagerly awaiting what promises to be an epic showdown at Rogers Arena – fans as well as top online betting platforms have shown their eagerness ahead of this epic clash!

Edmonton Oilers, well known for their dynamic offense, boast significant firepower. Led by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Zach Hyman – with Nugent-Hopkins amassing 14 points over 11 games while Hyman scoring 10. The Oilers will need their aggressive playstyle and ability to penetrate defenses in order to overcome Vancouver Canucks who have shown some resilience while at times showing vulnerabilities, as evidenced by mixed results in recent games.

Vancouver Canucks bring their own offensive arsenal, led by Brock Boeser and J.T Miller (both with 12 points from this season’s playoffs so far) each playing an instrumental role. Boeser’s exceptional shooting accuracy (25.1%) will prove key in breaching Edmonton Oilers defensive setup while Quinn Hughes provides quick playmaking power play opportunities; these will put pressure on an Oilers defense which has had issues on road games in particular.

Goaltender Stuart Skinner vs. Goaltender Arturs Silovs

Stuart Skinner has played a notable role as Edmonton Oilers goaltender during this postseason, showing a save percentage of 0.881 and being hit hard with 218 shots over nine games, yet has shown his ability to withstand pressure well and remains an asset in Game 7 situations where pressure may mount quickly. Skinner will play an especially vital role versus Vancouver Canucks: being there when crucial moments arrive will determine if his team can stymie Canuck’s attack and advance in playoffs.

Arturs Silovs has provided more stability for Vancouver Canucks during these playoffs with his save percentage of 0.898 and save percentage of 0.8889. His consistency will be essential against an Oilers team with lethal scoring capabilities; especially since high pressure situations, such as power plays or breakaways will require him to excel under extreme conditions – something Skinner has often struggled to do at crucial moments during play-off games. Should Silovs continue outperforming Skinner in these pressure situations it could give Vancouver the upper-hand they needed in terms of home advantage to advance further than first round play-off.


NHL Odds/Point Spread: Edmonton Oilers Moneyline -145, Total Odds: 6

Edmonton Oilers currently hold slightly favored betting odds, reflecting their offensive strengths and overall season performance. Yet their narrow line underlines this matchup’s competitive nature; bettors should remember their close series history as well as any indications for an over-scoring game as suggested by recent games from both teams.


Edmonton Oilers Betting Trends

Edmonton Oilers have struggled against the spread in their last few outings, particularly road games. This trend should cause concern to anyone betting them as evidenced by 1-4 records against spread in five road contests in their previous five. Yet with their ability to consistently score goals they remain an effective team capable of covering larger spreads.


Vancouver Canucks Betting Trends

The Vancouver Canucks have proven themselves adept against the spread, particularly on the road where they boasted a 5-1 mark over recent games. Given that they exceeded betting expectations – as well as being formidable hosts at Rogers Arena – betting oddsmakers may underestimate them for this pivotal matchup.


Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks 5/20/2024 Betting Picks

Given the immense pressure of Game 7 and both teams’ offensive abilities, this contest should be closely contested. Goaltender Luongo may give Vancouver an advantage against Toronto while their track record in covering spreads at home suggests potential value when betting Vancouver for an unexpected upset win.

Based on trends and performances, bettors might opt for high-scoring games with total goals exceeding six. Furthermore, prop bets related to key players like Hyman or Boeser who have consistently found the back of the net may prove interesting as an investment vehicle during these playoffs.

Expect the Vancouver Canucks to use their home advantage and steadier goaltending to seize this decisive win, making them our recommended pick among NHL Stanley Cup picks for an action-packed conclusion to this series.
