Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars Game 5: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Game 5 between the Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars goes down tonight in big D. This is the biggest game of the season for both teams.

Edmonton is coming off a dominating performance in the final 50 minutes of Game 4, where they outscored the Stars 4-0. The Oilers are going to look to carry that momentum into Game 5.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars Game 5 betting picks and predictions

One of the deciding factors tonight will be the status of Chris Tanev. The stud “defensive defenseman” blocked a shot in the second period of Game 4 and didn't return which is not a good sign because Tanev always returns to games.

The guy is a warrior, and he’s key to shutting down Connor McDavid and the high-powered Oilers offence. Tanev was seen in a walking boot at the Edmonton airport on Thursday.

Dallas' depth on defense falls off a cliff with Tanev out of the lineup. Alex Petrovic played three NHL games this season. Nils Lundkvist is the next man up and he is susceptible to defensive short comings.

The Oilers also have the two best players remaining in the playoffs. They are playing at a ridiculous level.

Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, and Evan Bouchard are the three leading point getters in the playoffs. Zach Hyman is the leading goal scorer. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is sixth in playoff scoring. I think the Oilers top players are too much to handle for the Stars.

The only thing that can get in the way of the Oilers not winning Game 5 is goaltending. Stuart Skinner has been wildly inconsistent. But if he can just be average, the Oilers will win this game.
