The Avalanche are up 2-0 in the Western Conference Final as they continue to lead the Stanley Cup odds heading into Game 3. Like Game 1 and 2, Colorado are listed as road favorites in the Avalanche vs Oilers Game 3 odds. Backup goaltender Pavel Francouz posted a shutout in Game 2 for the Avalanche.

Puck drop is set for 8 PM EST on Saturday, June 4th at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.

Let’s take a look at the Avalanche vs Oilers Game 3 odds from Caesars Sportsbook as we run through our prediction for the game.

Avalanche vs Oilers Odds

Team Moneyline Spread Total
Colorado Avalanche -130 -1.5 (+180) Over 7.0 (-110)
Edmonton Oilers +110 +1.5 (-220) Under 7.0 (-110)

Odds are courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook

Favorites for 13-straight games, the Colorado online sports betting markets list the Avalanche at -130 to win. To win by two or more has a little bit more value at +180 while winning in regulation is priced at +102.

Colorado Warranted Road Favorites in NHL Odds

The Avalanche have now won three straight playoff games and head into Rogers Place with five straight road wins under their belts. Oddsmakers aren’t listing Colorado as road favorites for no reason in the Avalanche vs Oilers odds.

Edmonton had an extremely poor performance in the offensive end in Game 2. The Oilers generated a 1.06 Expected Goals rate, which is a number that’s generally between 3.5-4.0.

Game 3 Playoff History

Team Record Win % GF/GA
Colorado Avalanche 25-29-0 .463 165/160
Edmonton Oilers 35-20-1 .634 211/171


Game 3 NHL Playoff history seems to go in the Oilers’ favor. Bettors shouldn’t solely rely on that considering teams change year to year. However, Edmonton backers can keep this in their back pockets.

Pavel Francouz did his job starting in place of Darcy Kuemper for Game 2 by posting a 24-save shutout. I’ll be quite surprised if Jared Bednar goes back to Kuemper for Game 3, considering Francouz’s performance. However, one thing to keep in mind, Francouz was worse on the road this season, posting a 6-4 record, 2.91 GAA, and .912 SV%.

Oilers Betting Analysis Heading Into Game 3

Edmonton is 4-2 at home this NHL Playoffs with a +11 goal differential. Not to mention, Mike Smith has been much better at home as well. The veteran netminder holds a 2.19 GAA compared to a 4.08 GAA on the road.

With such low-scoring efforts in Game 2, I expect Edmonton to get going at home considering they’re averaging four goals per game at home this postseason.

To dig deeper into the Oilers scoring chances on Thursday night, they generated zero high danger shot attempts. This Edmonton team has generated the most high danger chances since the start of the playoffs with 69.

Avalanche vs Oilers Game 3 Pick & Prediction

I think the betting value lies with Edmonton in the Oilers vs Avalanche Game 3 odds at Caesars Sportsbook. At +110, bettors can great value on McDavid and Draisaitl at home.

Here are a few trends I’m looking at for this Oilers vs Avalanche Game 3 matchup:

  • Home team is 7-1 in their last eight matchups
  • Oilers are 20-6 in their last 26 home games
  • Favorite is 8-0 in their last eight matchups

Ontario online sports betting markets are offering NHL odds for this game, so be sure to shop around before placing your wager.

One thing to note for this game, the Avalanche are 5-0 on second period overs on the road, while the Oilers are 5-1 at home. The second period over is enticing in Game 3. BetMGM is offering over 2.0 at -160 and over 2.5 at +115.

Pick: Oilers ML (+110) 1 unit, 2P Over 2.5 (+115) 0.5 units
