Ducks vs Oilers Prediction

For a moneyline bet, we have the Oilers as the likely winner. However, with the current odds at -254, I’d suggest considering a puck line bet, as our predictions have the Oilers winning by more than one goal.

When making a puck line pick, we’re backing the Oilers to win and cover. Watch for the Oilers to win this game by multiple goals over the Ducks.

If you’re looking at the the over/under line set at 6.5 goals, our prediction is that this game will stay below that threshold, and we strongly suggest placing a bet on the under.
