Things finally fell into place for the Edmonton Oilers during Game 4 of the finals where they were convincing 8-1 winners on the night, although it must be stated the Panthers didn’t seem to be interested and pulled their number one goaltender after the game went 4-1.

Tonight it is win or go home for the Oilers, but we are siding at top-rated sportsbooks with the home team and their regular season top scorer, Sam Reinhart, to get on the scoreboard as well as the Oilers’ top scorer in the regular season to bring his shooting gloves at some nice plus money odds.

Picks Summary

  • Sam Reinhart Anytime Goalscorer (+145)

Sam Reinhart’s Stats & Betting Trends

  • Sam Reinhart is the 3rd highest scorer this post-season with 9 goals in total.
  • Reinhart ended the regular season as the 2nd highest scorer in the NHL with 57 goals.

Eat Your Rein-Hart Out

The regular season’s 2nd highest scorer, Sam Reinhart, has been kept very quiet in recent games with just one goal scored in his previous six games. Prior to this Barron spell, Reinhart had scored 7 times in 15 playoff games and tallied 8 goals in total.

We are looking to bet on Reinhart to get back on the scoreboard on home ice, where he has scored 5 of his 9 playoff goals.

Reinhart has only managed a total of 7 shots in the first four games of these Stanley Cup finals, which is an incredibly low number for a forward of his stature. It’s no wonder he has only scored once thus far in the finals. Prior to the finals, he has 65 shots in 17 games. He now only has 72 shots in 21 games.

That said, we believe the Panthers will win tonight’s game, and in order for that to happen, somebody has to score. For us, our money is on Sam Reinhart at +145 NHL betting odds. We wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up scoring the winning goal for the Panthers to hoist the Stanley Cup. In recent games, when we have made a “we wouldn’t be surprised” statement, we generally tend to be correct.

Stats & Betting Trends

  • Zach Hyman has been the playoffs top shot taker with an average of 4 shots per game.
  • Hyman ended the regular season with an average of 3.9 shots per game.

Hyman Nothing to Lose

The Edmonton Oilers and Zach Hyman have nothing to lose at this stage of the finals. Down 3-1 and on the road, they may as well go gung-ho and hope for the best (just like they did in game 4). If the Oilers are to win, they will need another out-of-the-park performance because playing tight, conservative hockey won’t favor them against this Panthers team.

We genuinely cannot believe the odds on Hyman to see over 2.5 shots in tonight’s game. Coming in at +130, Hyman has seen 3+ shots in 16 of 21 playoff games thus far. That is about all you need to know it understand the value on offer here.

Even if we factor in it’s the finals, and that he is playing on the road and against a strong defensive team, we still wouldn’t say the odds deserve any more than maybe +115 at a very big push.

There’s plenty of value to be had here and we would happily back Hyman to bounce back from his one-shot game last time out (typically, he only had one shot the time they scored 8 goals) to see 3+ shots here, and in our eyes betable down to +100.
