The Dallas Stars and the Edmonton Oilers meet in NHL action from Rogers Place on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Edmonton is a -140 home favorite while Dallas is a +120 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.


For Dallas, Mason Marchment is questionable for this game with a lower body injury while Tyler Seguin and Scott Wedgewood are both out until late March. For Edmonton, Ryan McLeod and Zach Hyman are both questionable for this game with undisclosed injuries.

Matchup History

Edmonton’s 6-3 win back on December 21st, 2022, made it four straight meetings without back-to-back winners.


Dallas is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 5-1 in their last 6 road games while the over is 7-0-1 in their last 8 games against the Western Conference. Edmonton is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 games overall while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a win.


I’m backing the over here. Both of these teams have been lighting the lamp frequently and both have been lacklustre defensively and I just think we could be in for a higher scoring game here. I’m looking for this game to finish with 8 or 9 goals at the very least so give me the over here.
