It is all tied up as the series shifts to British Columbia as the Edmonton Oilers face the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday for Game 5. We're here to share our NHL odds series, make an Oilers-Canucks Game 5 prediction, and pick while showing you how to watch.

The Oilers defeated the Canucks 3-2 in Game 4 to even up the series, shifting the pressure back to Vancouver. Ultimately, Game 4 was another one-goal game that was great from start to finish. Leon Draisaitl opened up the scoring when he came off a pass from Connor McDavid to fire a one-timer into the net for a powerplay goal. Amazingly, he became the first Oilers player to begin a postseason with a 9-game point streak since Mark Messier.

The Oilers added to the lead when Ryan Nugent-Hopkins blasted a laser off the bar and into the net. However, the Canucks fought back in the third period after Conor Garland sniped it into the net to cut the deficit to 2-1. Brock Boeser then found an angle shot that went into the net to make it 2-2. Yet, the Oilers found a way to win it in the most heart-stopping moment when Evan Bouchard slapped it home to get a go-ahead and eventual game-winning goal.

Why The Oilers Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Oilers played one of their best games and still almost lost. Overall, they fired 30 shots. But the Oilers also won just 47 percent of their faceoffs. Despite that, they went 1 for 2 on the powerplay. This offense is still one of the most dangerous, high-octane offenses left in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Draisaitl now has eight goals and 12 assists, including six powerplay tallies. Also, he has been excellent in the faceoff circle, winning 93 draws and losing 77. McDavid remains elite, with two goals and 16 assists, including one powerplay tally. However, he has struggled in the faceoff circle, winning just 60 draws and losing 74.

Bouchard now had four goals and 11 assists after his game-winning tally in Game 4. Amazingly, he has potted three game-winning goals. But Zach Hyman is stuck on two goals and 11 assists after a relatively quiet Game 4. Also, Nugent-Hopkins now has two goals and nine assists after his tally.

The Oilers blocked 18 shots in Game 5. Additionally, they leveled 37 hits. It helped make things easier for Calvin Pickard, who won his first playoff start with 19 saves. Pickard is now 1-0 with a 1.57 goals-against average and a save percentage of .917, and may start Game 5.

The Oilers will cover the spread if they can continue putting pressure on the Nucks with numerous shots. Furthermore, they must continue to limit shots and avoid taking too many penalties.

Why The Canucks Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Canucks nearly won despite struggling for a majority of this game. Ultimately, they fired 21 shots at the Oilers. The Canucks also won 53 percent of their faceoffs, giving themselves more chances. Yet, they struggled on the powerplay, going 0 for 3.

J.T. Miller has two goals and nine assists in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including one powerplay tally. Additionally, he has been elite in the faceoff circle, winning 111 draws and losing 80. But Miller did not control things as well as usual in Game 4. Even worse, he was not able to dictate much of the offense.

Boeser now has seven goals and five assists. Ultimately, he is one of the main weapons on this team and will be a big reason if the Canucks can snag Game 5. Quinn Hughes currently has nine assists. However, he has yet to find the back of the net in the playoffs and is still looking for one.

Elias Lindholm has five goals and three assists in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Furthermore, he has won 103 draws and lost 98. Elias Pettersson was one of the best players on this team in the regular season. Unfortunately, he has gone quiet in the playoffs, with just one goal and three assists.

The defense did everything possible to overcome a high-powered offense, leveling 48 hits and blocking 15 shots. Now, they hope to do more to help Arthurs Silovs, who made 27 saves. Silovs is currently 4-3 with a 2.71 goals-against average and a save percentage of .907 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Canucks will cover the spread if they can find a way to get more shots on the net. Then, they need to avoid taking penalties.

Final Oilers-Canucks Game 5 Prediction & Pick

There have been four one-goal games. Also, the Oilers are the favorites in this one despite not winning by two goals yet. While some trends are meant to be broken, the Canucks have the firepower and the talent to stay in this one. They will find a way to keep this game close. Consider the fact that the Canucks will probably see this game as a must-win situation, considering they would head back to Edmonton trailing, which is not a good thing. Expect the Canucks to find a way to cover the spread in this game.
