Stars vs Oilers Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Stars to come out with a win against the Oilers while playing on the road. Considering the moneyline odds at +106, I’m placing my bet on the Stars to win outright.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Stars winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Stars straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 5.5 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
