Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks Game 7 Betting Preview

Game 7 between the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks is set to take place on Monday night, and it’s expected to be a great battle. This has been a thrilling series between a pair of rivals from Canada, and the winner will head to the Western Conference Finals.

The Oilers were able to keep their season alive with a 5-1 win in Game 6, but they got that done at home. Edmonton has been the favorite to win this series all along, but they now have to pick up a win on the road. 

Vancouver will have a raucous home crowd behind them on Monday night, and that should give this team some energy. The Canucks earned home ice advantage during the regular season, and that could come into play in this game. 

Edmonton is a moneyline betting favorite at -140 on Monday night, while Vancouver has moneyline odds set at +120. 

Edmonton Wants to Score

The Edmonton Oilers scored 3.56 goals per game during the regular season, and they are always looking to score goals when they have the puck. Edmonton broke through with five goals in the Game 6 win, and they could have had a few more. 

Connor McDavid has been generating a ton of offense for his team during the run as he has 19 postseason assists. The Oilers are nearly impossible to stop on the power play, and the Canucks will have to play a disciplined brand of hockey. 

The Oilers haven’t always been a great defensive team this season, but they have proven to the Canucks that they can be tough to score on. 

Canucks Looking to Be Physical

The Vancouver Canucks know that their best chance to win this game is to slow down the tempo and hit the Oilers on every shift. Vancouver was also an explosive offensive team during the regular season, but that’s not their strength. 

The Canucks will need their goaltenders to step up in this game, and they are allowing just 2.25 goals per game this postseason. Vancouver will still have to take some chances on offense, but they must be smart. 

Brock Boeser has been the offensive star for the Canucks in the playoffs as he has scored seven goals to lead the team. Boeser will need some help if the Canucks are going to advance to the next round. 

Oilers Advance in Big Way

The Vancouver Canucks will be trying to slow down the pace in this game, but things are going to get away from them on Monday night. Vancouver lost all of the momentum in the Game 6 blowout loss, and that is going to be a problem in this one. 

Edmonton just has so many weapons on offense, and they are going to be looking to attack all night long. The Oilers will be playing a loose and free style on offense, and that should allow them to take control. 

Bet the Edmonton Oilers at -1.5 on the puck line as they will win this Game 7 by at least two goals on Monday night.
