The Edmonton Oilers face the Florida Panthers in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on June 18, 2024, with odds favoring the Panthers as -135 favorites over the Oilers at +114. Early betting trends show 82% of bets on the Panthers, compared to 18% on the Oilers. The total goals line is set at 5.5, with 97% of bets on the over. With both teams looking to secure a win, this matchup promises to be an exciting one for hockey fans and bettors alike, as the Panthers look to close out this series and the championship on home ice.

Going into Oilers vs Panthers Game 5, the Panthers hold a 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final. Florida took a 3-0 lead in the series before Edmonton responded in a big way in Game 4, scoring eight goals in one of the more dominant performances in recent memory in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. However, it might be too little too late, as the Oilers still need to win three more games in a row in order to come away with this series in what would be one of the most dramatic comebacks in the history of professional sports.

In order for the Oilers to win Game 5 and keep their hopes alive going into a Game 6, they will need to figure out a way to get the better of the Florida defense once again. While the Oilers did a great job of that in Game 4 at home, they had scored four combined goals in the first three games of the series. If Edmonton can prove that their scoring outburst in their last game was not a fluke, they could get themselves back into this series, but that could be hard to accomplish against this tenacious Florida defense.

On the other side, pressure could become a factor for the Panthers, who are tasked with closing out this series to win their first championship in franchise history. They came out flat in Game 4 on the road and are now faced with a chance to lift the Stanley Cup on home ice. But if they fail to get the job done here, they are all of a sudden facing a Game 6 on the road in a series that could quickly snowball into a seven-game series.

Our best bet for Oilers vs Panthers Game 5 is for the Florida Panthers to win at home and to close this series out in five games. The Panthers are just too good defensively, despite the blip in the radar that we saw in their last outing. We will take the Panthers to win on the moneyline and for them to celebrate in front of their home crowd after Game 5, similar to what we saw with the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals when they were blown out in Game 4 only to bounce back and close the series out in their next game.
