NHL Playoff Predictions: Anaheim Ducks vs Edmonton Oilers Game 4

NHL Playoff Predictions: Anaheim Ducks vs Edmonton Oilers Game 4
After rare back-to-back losses at the Duck Pond, Anaheim posted a 6-3 win on the road in the Alberta Capital during Game 3. The Ducks are now back in this Western Conference Semifinal series versus the Oilers. Pivotal Game 4 is slated for 10:00 PM ET on May 3, 2017, at Rogers Place Arena in Edmonton, Alberta.

Oilers at Ducks NHL Playoffs Game 3 Review: Anaheim 6-3 Final

We are off the schneid in this series as we cashed our Game 3 total goal ticket. It is disappointing that we backed the 4.5 alternate total, on a game that ended 6-3, but we felt that was a prudent “stop the bleeding” move. As was the case with our wagering run during the Flames vs Ducks series, we weren’t off the rails but needed to right our wobbling ship. Feeling we earned a better fate, in at least one of the California contests, our -255 unit deficit from the first two matches is a less invincible –55 dent now. Bankroll management is important – especially during playoff time.

NHL Western Conference Semifinal Series Game 4 Preview: Anaheim @ Edmonton

Anaheim averted certain disaster after they let an early 3-0 lead evaporate during Game 3. It was like déjà vu all over again as the Ducks pulled a New York Rangers and Edmonton tied the game at 3-3 thanks to a Connor McDavid goal midway through the second period. Showing their playoff metal, Anaheim scored 48 seconds later to go up 4-3 and the Ducks never looked back. Anaheim stifled Edmonton in the third frame as the SoCal Kids outshot the Alberta Boys by a 12-4 margin.

Cam Talbot showed he isn’t a puck-stopping robot as he allowed four goals on 16 shots through two periods. John Gibson is still an enigma in net for the Ducks as he allowed three straight goals on just five shots over a 9:20 span to close the first and open the second period. Both teams are desperate for a win here – for different reasons that boil down to the same result. An Oilers 3-1 lead puts them in the drivers seat while a Ducks victory means Anaheim returns home on a roll.

500 Units OVER 4.5 (-250) Total Goals Bet365

NHL Playoff Picks Today – May 3, 2017 – 500 Units OVER 4.5 (-250) Total Goals @ Bet365. Energized by a fired up Orange Crush fan base, for the first NHL semifinal playoff game at Rogers Place Arena, Edmonton won the Game 3 hit count by a 47-39 margin. While those numbers are sort of arbitrary (calculated by hometown stat guys) the eyeball test showed the Oilers as the more aggressive team. A far more exact science, Anaheim continued their domination in the faceoff dot as they won that battle by a 37-27 count. The Ducks now have a 119-81 edge in puck controlling faceoff wins during the first three games. Wager 500 units OVER on the Bet365 4.5 game total.

NHL Western and Eastern Conference Stanley Cup Futures Betting Update

For a number of reasons, the National Hockey League 2017 Stanley Cup futures board here at Canada Sports Betting has changed dramatically during the past 24 hours. Nashville posted a 2-1 victory in their Game 4 battle with the Blues and a 3-1 series lead has pushed the Predators (-325) into the top chalk spot. Despite their Game 3 loss to Anaheim, Edmonton retained the second seed but the Oilers (+350) line will either shrink or expand depending on the result of their Game 4 duel with the Ducks. Put a fork in St. Louis as they are overmatched in their series with the Preds. The Blues (+2500) overall pup price isn’t worth even one dollar of your sports wagering bankroll.

Injuries are an unfortunate part of fast-paced Fire On Ice action and they always rattle the betting cages at top ranked online sportsbooks. That is especially true when they put a superstar on the shelf. Due to Sidney Crosby suffering yet another concussion, Pittsburgh (+350) has fallen into a tie with the Oilers as second NHL title chalk. Ballooning to (+900) after losing two in a row at home to the Pens, Washington’s Cup price shrunk to (+500) thanks to their 3-2 (OT) Game 3 victory in the Steel City. After a 4-1 Game 3 ripping by the Rangers, Ottawa’s Stanley Cup line was downgraded to (+900) while New York’s value shrunk from (+1400) to (+1100) at the William Hill sportsbook.
