The Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers are tied one game apiece in this best of five series. I win today will put the winner into the driver's seat to advance to the next round.

After getting down big in game one, the Oilers came out firing and came away with an easy 6-3 win in game two. The offense has not been a problem for the Oilers, either in the regular season or the playoffs. They averaged 3.14 goals a game during the regular season and is putting up five goals a game through the first two games of this series. As Connor McDavid goes so does the Oilers. So far he has produced four goals and two assists. Unfortunately, the Oilers do not play as well on the defensive end. They allowed 3.03 goals during the regular season and that has jumped to 4.5 goals in the playoffs.

The BlackHawks have stepped it up on the offensive end, scoring 4.5 goals a game including six in game one. Dominik Kubalik has two goals and three assists. The Blackhawks Struggled on defense during the regular season and that has followed them to the playoffs. During the regular season, the Hawks allowed 3.06 goals a game and that has ballooned to five goals a game against the Oilers.

Both teams have struggled on the defensive end. Both teams like to push the puck and use their speed. The Oilers have more firepower and McDavid has been unstoppable. I like the Oilers to go up a game in this series.

Play on Edmonton. This is a 7* play.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
