Money Line: Bruins (-170), Oilers (+145)
Puck Line: Bruins -1.5 (+140), Oilers +1.5 (-165)
Over/Under: OVER 6.5 (-120), UNDER 6.5 (+100)
Pick 1: Over 6.5 +100
For the second time in nine days, the league’s two best offenses square off in what many would love to be a preview of the 2023 Stanley Cup Final. The first time, the league’s best defense and the Bruins won an exciting 3-2 game in Edmonton. This time, we’re predicting the fireworks everyone expected last week and specifically a back-and-forth between the league’s two leading scorers, McDavid, and Bruins star winger David Pastrnak. This leads to our next picks. …
Pick 2: David Pastrnak Over 1.5 goals +350
David Pastrnak was held to an assist and unable to light the lamp in the first showdown with McDavid last week in Edmonton. Maybe, just maybe, his mind was focused on finally signing a contract extension with the Bruins? He did just that two days later, inking an eight-year, $90 million contract extension with the Bruins. Now with that weight lifted off his mind, Pasta will shine.
Pick 3: Connor McDavid Anytime Scorer +100
How the heck is McDavid to score at even money with the Oilers star winger riding an 11-game point streak with an astonishing 12 goals and 11 assists over that span? Don’t pass up that rare gift from the NHL betting Gods!
