Dallas Stars vs. Edmonton Oilers Game 4 Betting Preview

Game 4 of the NHL Western Conference Finals is set for Wednesday night, and this game could have a huge impact on the winner of this series. Dallas currently holds a 2-1 series lead over Edmonton, and the Oilers simply have to find a way to win on their home ice.

Dallas won the Central Division this season, and that has given them home ice advantage throughout the Western Conference portion of the playoffs. The Stars got past the Colorado Avalanche last round, and they have now won two straight games in this series. 

Edmonton got through a grueling series with the Vancouver Canucks last round, and that gave them some momentum. The Oilers were able to win the series opener, but they are now in desperate need of picking up a win at thome. 

The Edmonton Oilers are moneyline betting favorites at -130 on Wednesday night, and the over/under line is set at 5.5 total goals. 

Stars Scoring Some Goals

Dallas came out of nowhere to average 3.59 goals per game during the regular season, and they have been great on offense in the postseason as well. The Stars scored five goals in the Game 3 win, and it was Jason Robertson that set the tone. 

Robertson had a hat trick to power Dallas on Monday night, and this team was able to be in attack mode throughout the matchup. Dallas needs to find a way to slow things down as well, but they are taking advantage of the Oilers. 

Goaltender Jake Oettinger has been a star all postseason long, and he will be looking to set the tone yet again. 

Edmonton Must Maintain Pressure

The Edmonton Oilers are going to need to find a way to get some defensive stops in this game if they want to get back in the series. Edmonton continues to play aggressively on offense, but that’s just not a good way to win this game. 

Connor McDavid had a goal and an assist in the Game 3 loss, but he will need some help moving forward. Leon Draisaitl was quiet in the first game at home, and he is someone that this team relies on to score some goals. 

Edmonton is not a team that wants to win low-scoring games, but that’s the type of game that is sometimes required to succeed in the postseason. 

Oilers Slip Past Stars

Dallas will be able to play without pressure on Wednesday night as they have done what they needed to do on the road. The Stars came alive late in the Game 3 win, but they want to set the tone on defense in this matchup. 

Edmonton has the ability to score goals in a hurry, and their offense needs to find a way to set the tone in this matchup. This team should be able to use the home crowd to give them energy, and that should lead to a great performance on the ice. 

Bet the Edmonton Oilers at -130 on the moneyline in Game 4, and also take the over 5.5 total goals in this matchup.
