Oilers vs Canucks: Odds & Prediction

The Edmonton Oilers are -166 favorites, while the Vancouver Canucks are +140 underdogs, with the over/under set at 5.5 goals and the over juiced to -122 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Vancouver will be without forward Brock Boeser who has a blood clot issue. That is a big loss for the Canucks, as he is one of their top goal-scorers.

Stuart Skinner started Game 6 and played effectively, which should boost his confidence heading into Game 7. The Canucks offense has already struggled this season, and losing Boeser is a significant blow.

Connor McDavid should take over this game and lead Edmonton to a win in a close game, with the Oilers adding an empty netter to get the win.

Prediction: Oilers 4, Canucks 2.
