NHL Playoff Predictions: Anaheim Ducks vs Edmonton Oilers Game 3

Game 3 puck drop is early - at 7:00 PM ET on April 30, 2017, in a wild Alberta Capital.

Oilers at Ducks NHL Playoffs Game 2 Review: Oilers 2-1 Final

Moving closer to the top of betting boards everywhere, Edmonton completed a California crushing with a 2-1 Game 2 win versus Anaheim. If there was preferential seating on the plane ride home Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot earned it as he was brilliant with a 39 save performance during the second match of the SoCal sweep. The exciting young Edmonton Crew have been quicker and stronger than the Ducks who lost back-to-back at home for the first time since late November.

NHL Western Conference Semifinal Series Game 3 Preview: Anaheim @ Edmonton

While Edmonton was full marks for their success in Anaheim, the Ducks must be wondering what more they can do as they outshot the Oilers by a 76-55 margin at the Duck Pond. Anaheim also had an edge in faceoff wins (82-54) and hits (78-52) during the first two contests. Simply stated, John Gibson has to be better in between the pipes for the Ducks. Allowing two goals is a decent number but it’s less impressive when facing 23 shots and the first is scored 1:05 into the match. 

On the other side of the coin, the Oilers may be feeling they haven’t played their best game yet. Largely due to the Ducks having last line-change at home, superstar Connor McDavid was held to one point and five shots on goal in Anaheim. With the scene shifting to Alberta, McJesus should find the battle a little easier at Rogers Place Arena. Goaltending is a huge key to Edmonton staying in the Stanley Cup chase as the young Oilers aren’t always as defensively focused as they should be.

450 Units OVER 4.5 (-225) Total Goals William Hill

NHL Playoff Picks Today – April 30, 2017 – 450 Units OVER 4.5 (-225) Total Goals @ William Hill. We are 0-2 on this series now but feel we deserved a better result on our Game 2 money line pick. The Ducks had the edge in several key areas during the SoCal contests but we wonder how that will translate on the road as Anaheim was a rather vanilla 17-15-9 on the road this season. Key Anaheim D-Men Sami Vatanen and Kevin Bieksa are both expected to miss this contest. William Hill bookmakers have Edmonton as a slight favorite tonight with a (-130) to (+110) ML edge. We are wagering 450 units to back the OVER on the 4.5 (-225) William Hill alternate total goal price.
