For the final NHL props piece on Thursday, January 25, we present you the Blackhawks vs Oilers Player Prop Bets. The hottest team in the NHL, the Edmonton Oilers, are looking to extend their winning streak to 15 games when they welcome the Chicago Blackhawks, who are desperate to avoid the 19th consecutive road loss.

Blackhawks vs Oilers Player Prop Bets – Connor McDavid Over 1.5 Points (-130)

One of the best players in the NHL, if not the best, Connor McDavid leads the Oilers in points with 60 in 41 games. He has nine me than Leon Draisaitl, and two of them are the most deserving for Edmonton’s fantastic run of 14 wins.

However, a quite surprising fact is that McDavid failed to register a multi-point game in the last eight outings. He even scored just a goal the last time the Oilers met the Blackhawks, but in a H2H prior to that, McDavid did register a pair of assists.

I believe this matchup is excellent for Connor to get 2+ points. After all, he faces the worst road team in the NHL and the fourth-worst defense that allows 3.58 goals per game. Chicago allowed 3+ goals in 20 of the last 22 games away from home. Edmonton scored 4+ goals in 11 of the past 13 home games.

Philipp Kurashev Over 1.5 Shots on Goal (-120)

For the second pick in the Blackhawks vs Oilers Player Prop Bets, I have a Blackhawk. It’s not a very wise move to bet on the Blackhawks’ players at the moment, especially when they play on the road. Still, Philipp Kurashev has been one of the bright spots for the Hawks this year. With the No. 1 pick overall, Connor Bedard sidelined due to a broken jaw, Kurashev is the No. 2 option on offense for the Blackhawks.

Kurashev has 24 points in 41 games, and although we can’t rely on Chicago’s offense, Kurashev is the one to pick in this matchup. He did register 2+ shots in just four of the previous eight games, but one of them came against the Oilers.

In two games against Edmonton this season, Kurashev had two and four shots, respectively, and we need two more from him here.  When it comes to H2H against the Oilers in his career, Kurashev recorded 17 shots in eight outings.
