The Edmonton Oilers will be looking to win three games in a row for the first time since early January when they continue a three-game road trip in Dallas on Tuesday as +155 underdogs on the NHL odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Edmonton is coming off an 8-3 win in Nashville as a +120 wager on Monday night, and will be aiming to sweep a stretch of three games in four nights when they hit the ice for Tuesday’s game at American Airlines Center.

Oilers at Stars | OddsShark Matchup Report

The Oilers offense caught fire on Monday with Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid combining for 10 points as the team moved three points up on third-place Calgary in the Pacific Division standings.

Edmonton’s offensive outburst also came on the heels of a quiet stretch for the team, as they had potted just 14 total goals over their past six games, including defeats in their two previous road contests. However, after posting consecutive wins just once in their past six outings, the Oilers continue to lag behind the favorites on the Stanley Cup odds as a +2000 wager.

The Stars return home as -175  betting favorites despite falling to defeat in the final two dates of a three-game road trip, capped by a 4-3 loss in St. Louis as a +115 wager on Saturday night. Overall, the Stars have come up short in four of their past seven outings and remain stalled in third place in the Central Division standings, seven points back of the first-place Blues with just 17 games remaining on their schedule.

As well, the team has plenty of work to do to close the gap on the second-place Colorado Avalanche, whom they are increasingly likely to face in the first round of the playoffs. However, the Stars have impressed in recent performances on home ice, earning the win in three of their past four outings while surrendering just four total goals in the three victories.

The Stars have also held a clear edge in recent matchups with the Oilers, posting wins in five of seven meetings since October 2017 including a trio of wins on home ice. But Dallas came out on the wrong end of a 2-1 decision as -180 home chalk at online betting sites in their last clash with Edmonton back in October.
