Stars – Oilers betting tip, odds NHL 01.06.2024

NHL 2023/24 Playoffs, Conference Finals, Game 5 on Saturday, 01.06.2024

It’s an incredibly close series unfolding before our eyes in these 2024 NHL playoffs between Dallas and Edmonton. Comebacks are the order of the day in these conference finals, as is a preponderance of shots on goal by the Canadiens.

But can Leon Draisaitl and his men use their offensive power to secure a spot in the Stanley Cup Final?

After my successful Oilers Stars betting tip for Game 4, the only change in the current Stars Oilers betting tip is the location. But my intention to provide you with promising hockey bets remains the same:

As I correctly pointed out in my successful Oilers Stars betting tip for Game 3, Leon Draisaitl’s run of bad luck simply had to come to an end.

Already a playoff game without a goal or assist from the Cologne native was an absolute novelty in the current postseason, but then three in a row? In this case, some data analysts would certainly have lost faith.

In any case, the German scored again in the final clash with the Texans, paving the way for an impressive 5-2 victory for the Oilers, in which the Canadiens’ offense once again did not disappoint.

Interesting in this context: In all four games of this series, Edmonton repeatedly won the goal-scoring duel against Dallas

But it wasn’t a start-to-finish win! The Oilers won Game 4 despite a poor start that saw them down 2-0 in the first 5:29 minutes. However, they battled back and scored five unanswered goals.

They controlled the game by limiting the Stars to just 22 shots, killing off two power plays and scoring a shorthanded goal. Goaltender Stuart Skinner made some key saves to make sure Dallas didn’t find their way back into the game.

Coach Kris Knoblauch deserves a lot of credit for changing the roster after Game 3, as the Oilers were much better prepared for the Texans this time around

Jason Robertson, the Stars’ forward, has been on a performance roller coaster. That’s why I’ve been hesitant to place bets on him.

After not scoring a goal in 10 playoff games, he suddenly scored a hat trick in Game 3, thanks in part to the return of Roope Hintz.

But Robertson went minus-2 with no points in Game 4, the sixth time in the playoffs he’s gone pointless and the seventh time he’s gone minus-goal

As the Stars continue to wait for their first power-play goal of the series, they’ll need Robertson, who put the Canadiens’ goal under constant fire in Game 3, especially now that the action is shifting back to Dallas.

It’s this favorable circumstance that makes me confident that the Texans’ key player could actually score an important goal tonight.

The matching goal odds at Bet365 are currently around 3.20, which is particularly worthwhile for those who think the Texans will take the lead again tonight anyway.

I’m also confident that Dallas could win tonight because an absolute top performer is about to make his comeback.

A key addition at the trade deadline, Tanev is a crucial part of the Stars’ top-four defense and has averaged 23:26 minutes of ice time per game for a reason.

He also leads all players in the playoffs with 68 blocked shots. Dallas is hoping he’ll be available again in Game 5 to block a few more shots.

Otherwise, it would be a serious setback for this already thin Texans squad, which would subsequently have a negative impact on their shorthanded play – the last thing you want against the Oilers.

For my part, I took a closer look at the Stars Oilers odds from the leading bookmakers and realized that the Texans’ win odds of around 2.22 would be suitable for a single bet alone.

However, I plan to select a goal by Robertson using the Bet-Build function, which is common with many betting providers with PayPal as a payment method, in order to be able to place an excellent odds combination bet.

Conclusion: It looks like Christopher Tanev will return tonight. That would certainly add some solidity to the Stars’ defense and give them a decided advantage in shorthanded situations.

The Texans have already successfully managed to take Leon Draisaitl out of the game time and time again, so with Tanev back on defense in Game 5, they could do a much better job of keeping the Canadiens in check.

Incidentally, home-ice advantage is also very important in this pairing due to the large geographical distance between the two franchises. This is another reason why I believe that the Texans will soon take the lead again.
