Edmonton and Dallas come into this 3rd game of the series tied at 1-1.

With the next two games being played in Edmonton, we look to Leon Draisaitl to get back on the scoreboard at plus money, and surprisingly available at much better NHL odds than we expected to find at the top betting sites.

Betting Trends

  • Leon Draisaitl is currently the 2nd highest scorer in the playoffs with 9 goals.
  • Draisaitl scored 41 goals in 81 games played throughout the regular season.

Value For Draisaitl Goal

Having scored 5 of his 9 playoff goals on home ice, we are looking at Leon Draisaitl to get back on the scoreboard for the first time in two games. The Oilers have been on the road for three games in a row, this will be the first time they played at Rogers Place since last Sunday, a stretch of three games.

Interestingly he has only scored once in his previous five games. So, not only are we betting on him whilst cold, but we also believe now is the time Draisaitl might get hot and help carry his team to the Stanley Cup finals.

Having scored 8 of his 9 goals in the opening 8 games, Draisaitl has gone a little cold, but nonetheless, we love his odds available at +145 to get back on the scoreboard tonight in front of his fans.

The trouble with the Oilers is they have a multitude of players who can score, let’s hope Draisaitl is one of the lucky ones to get his stick on the end of the puck.

NHL Best Bet

We would bet Draisaitl’s anytime goalscorer odds down to as low as +125, this gives us 20 cents of value on Draisaitl to score tonight.

This could totally blow up but for these odds, it’s well worth it as Draisaitl has proven throughout the years he can step up and become the best player on the ice when needs be (and that says a lot when your teammate is Connor McDavid).

We also like the look of Draisaitl to score 2+ goals at +1000 odds and for him to score 2+ points at +140 betting odds. We are all in on the German-born player tonight.
