The Edmonton Oilers face off against the Dallas Stars in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final on May 31, 2024, with the Oilers as +110 underdogs and the Stars as -130 favorites. Going into this pivotal game, this series is tied 2-2, with the winner of this matchup set to take a 3-2 lead. The opening total of 6.0 is seeing 13% of bets on the under and 87% on the over. With both teams looking for a crucial win, this matchup promises to be a thrilling game for fans and bettors alike.

The significance of Oilers vs Stars Game 5 cannot be overstated. Obviously, it is better to take a 3-2 lead than it is to fall behind 3-2, as the winner of this game will have two chances to clinch the series in Games 6 and 7. Meanwhile, the loser of this game will have no margin for error for the rest of the series. And from what we have seen in this series so far, who will come out on top of this game is anyone's guess.

Through the first four games of this series, the Oilers and Stars are a combined 2-2 on home ice so far in the series. The Oilers stole Game 1 in Dallas in double-overtime, while the Stars took Game 3 of the series in Edmonton. Both teams have done a good enough job of protecting their home ice to avoid dropping both of their home games and falling behind by two games, but there has been very little consistency in this series in terms of who can control the action for more than a game at a time.

In this pivotal Game 5, we will take the Oilers to win on the road as an underdog. While the Stars have proven themselves capable of winning in big spots throughout the playoffs, these teams are both clearly capable of winning road games in big spots. We will take the Oilers to do that again here at a plus price.
