Over/Under: Over 6.5 (-130); Under (+110)
Through two games it’s been all about the superstars on both teams matching each other’s production. Conor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl combined for two goals and three assists in Game 2 and the Oilers won. Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk combined for three goals and four assists in Game 1 and the Flames won. Calgary needs a good performance from goalie Jacob Markstrom. He is much better than what he has shown thus far. Add in timely goals from Blake Coleman and Elias Lindholm and the Flames will be able to steal Game 3 in Edmonton despite it being another high scoring affair.
Pick: Flames (-120)
