Oilers vs Canucks Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Oilers to pick up on a win over the Canucks and the road. With the moneyline sitting at -125, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Oilers straight-up.

If you’re looking for my recommendation on the puck line, I suggest taking the Canucks to cover. Even if the Oilers manage to win outright, this game is expected to remain competitive, and the Canucks should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
