For a puck line pick, we are going with the Oilers to win and cover. Look for the Oilers to win this one by multiple goals over the Golden Knights.

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.
