The Stars are the -145 favourites to win on the NHL odds with the total set at 6.5.

Oilers vs. Stars NHL Betting Odds

This will be the second meeting of the season between these squads after Jamie Benn’s hattrick powered the Stars to a 6-2 win over the Oilers back on November 5th. Dallas’ Jason Robertson picked up three points in the win, while backup goalie Scott Wedgewood stopped 28 of 30 shots. Darnell Nurse and Leon Draisaitl did the scoring for the Oilers and Jack Campbell allowed six goals on 36 shots.

They hit the Over on their high total of seven goals making it three consecutive head-to-heads to go that way.

The Oilers have not covered any game during their current three-game skid, getting beat as the favourite in all of those matchups, bumping their record ATS down to 16-17. They have a 20-10-3 record on the Over/Under this season, so to no one’s surprise, they are 7-3 to the over in their past 10 games.

The Stars boast an impressive 20-13 record against the spread so far, but have had trouble ATS as of late, covering in just three of their past nine games. Their offence has cooled off a bit recently, playing the Under in seven of their past 10 games.

Both of these squads are in the top five in league scoring, averaging 3.6 goals per game which could make for an exciting matchup.

Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers dropped their third straight game 4-3 in overtime versus the Predators on Monday night. Edmonton was chasing the game from the get-go, giving up a goal in the first five minutes of the game. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins would tie the game at two with a powerplay in the second period, to extend his point streak to four games. Connor McDavid also extended his point streak (13 games) assisting on Nugent-Hopkins’ second powerplay marker of the game in the third period to send the game to overtime.

McDavid ended the game with a pair of apples boosting his league lead to 64 points, while Jack Campbell stopped 31 of 35 shots, starting only his third game this month.

Fresh off a new three-year 7.8 million dollar contract, Edmonton native Stuart Skinner will likely be back in the net after getting a well-deserved day off in Dallas.

Dallas Stars

Wyatt Johnston scored his eighth goal of the season just 55 seconds into the second period and the Stars were able to ride the lead until the end of the game, picking up their third win in their past four games.

Jason Robertson would add an empty netter, four his fourth point in the last two games. Goalie Jake Oettinger was almost perfect, stopping 27 of 28 shots, and giving up a goal with just 15 seconds left in the game.

The Stars are returning to home ice, after a long five-game Eastern Conference road trip where they went 3-1-1. They lead the Central Division by a single point and will be looking to improve their 9-3-3 record on home ice this season.
