Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks Game 7: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The second round of the 2024 Stanley Cup playoffs has featured a mouth-watering Pacific Division rivalry between the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks, and it has not disappointed.

With Connor McDavid and the Oilers taking Game 6 to stay alive, we’re set for a huge Game 7 on Monday night, and we’ve provided our best bets.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks betting picks and predictions

Over 6.0 goals (+100)

After a ridiculous nine straight one-goal games for the Canucks, they were absolutely blown away in Game 6 on Saturday night. However, they get to head back home for the decisive Game 7, as they were the ones to win the Pacific Division over the Oilers and defending-champion Vegas Golden Knights.

Even with that being the case, they find themselves as the clear underdogs to advance to the Western Conference Finals, something made a little more surprising by the fact they defeated Edmonton in all four matchups in the regular season!

With that being the case, the value in terms of picking a winner would likely be with Vancouver at +125, but we’re going to avoid that market altogether.

Instead, we’re going to target a high-scoring game, which is exactly how this series began, with the first two games taking place in Vancouver at Rogers Place. We saw seven or more goals in each of the first three games, which was a continuation of a trend that we saw in the regular season with all but one of the four meetings also seeing at least seven goals.

As mentioned, the Canucks won all four, so we know that they can hold up their end of the bargain.

As for the Oilers, McDavid and Leon Draisaitl produce as much offense as some entire teams - they combine for 44 points in 11 games in the playoffs so far - so there should be no shortage of opportunities on Monday night.

With everything on the line and the Dallas Stars in their sights, we are expecting plenty of fireworks in Monday’s Game 7.

Quinn Hughes to record an assist (-140)

If we are expecting plenty of goals, it’s only fitting to target an offensive player prop - and we are particularly confident in this one as we target one of the Hughes brothers.

Jack and Luke are in New Jersey with the Devils, but it’s Quinn that has proven to be one of the best defensemen in the NHL. His 75 assists this season not only led the team but were the fourth-most in the entire league.

It may not have quite been the 100 put up by McDavid, but he is still elite, and has been so this postseason. Hughes has nine points thus far in the 2024 Stanley Cup playoffs, and all nine have been assists.

As a defenseman, his primary role has been dishing out helpers, as nearly 81% of his points during the season were also assists. Furthermore, he tore up Edmonton with apples in their four regular season matchups. He had seven in total across the four games, including three assists in each of the two home games against the Oilers.

We are only asking for one assist on Monday night and at odds of -140, that’s our favorite way to approach the player props market.
