Can Dallas Steal Game 4 & Upset Oilers? (Best Prop Picks Inside!)

The Dallas Stars look like they are on the verge of taking control of the series as they visit the favored Edmonton Oilers for Game 4 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday night.

Jason Robertson was the latest star of the Stars with a hat trick as Dallas rallied for a 5-3 victory on Monday to take a 2-1 lead in the series. The Stars boast 11 players with at least two goals in the playoffs and no one is under +200 in Las Vegas NHL odds to score in Game 4.

Wyatt Johnston leads the way with eight goals in the playoffs and is +200 to score on Wednesday, but there are plenty of others with more value for Dallas.

Connor McDavid cashed in with two points in Game 3 for Edmonton to tie Leon Draisaitl for the NHL lead in the postseason with 25. Draisaitl has gone two games without making the scoresheet and is +144 to get 2+ points on Wednesday.

There were nine goals scored in the first two games and eight in Game 3. Expect another high-scoring game, so there should be good options for your NHL betting.

 

Jason Robertson Finally Unleashed

Robertson registered 116 goals in the last three regular seasons, so being more of a setup man in the playoffs before Monday was not going to last.

 

The 24-year-old forward became the second player in Stars franchise history to score a hat trick in the round before the finals, joining Dino Ciccarelli (1981). He is still +225 to pot a goal on Wednesday and +1200 record a pair.

Goal scorers like him, you need one to drop, all of a sudden (the goal) looks like a soccer net,” Dallas coach Peter DeBoer told reporters of Robertson. “Goal scorers are streaky like that, and obviously having Roope (Hintz) back helps.

Hintz returned from an upper-body injury after missing the first two games of the series and posted a pair of assists. The 27-year-old is +102 to record a point and +316 to match his total from Game 3 on Wednesday.

 

Do Oilers Have Answers for Stars?

This Oilers group has a history of failing in the playoffs and Game 4 could prove this is a different team.

McDavid is warming up and Draisaitl will be revved up to end his drought. Again, that could benefit their linemates. McDavid often plays with Zach Hyman and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins while Draisaitl centers Evander Kane and Dylan Holloway.

It would help if Edmonton’s power play got back in gear. The Oilers are 1-for-15 in the last six games after going 14-for-30 in the first nine games of the playoffs.

More importantly, If the Oilers get off to a similar start to Game 3, they need to carry it over.

 

Kane and Nugent-Hopkins are +300 to score a goal in Game 4. Holloway is +500. Using them in a parlay bet gives you the best value.

 

Evan Bouchard, Tyler Seguin Undervalued

Edmonton defenseman Evan Bouchard and Stars veteran forward Tyler Seguin are both having tremendous postseasons and could send you to the pay window after Wednesday’s game.

Bouchard boasts an NHL-high 22 points for defensemen and a league-best +12 rating, going without a point in all but three of 15 games in the playoffs. He has five goals and is a juicy +325 to get No. 6.

Seguin has two goals, two assists, 12 shots on goal, and is a +3 in the series. He has 12 points and is a team-best +10 in the postseason. You are getting +275 odds at BetUS Sportsbook for your bet on him to score his sixth goal of the playoffs.

Both players are excellent wagers to make an impact in the game.
