    The Florida Panthers look to take a commanding 3-0 series lead when they travel to face the Edmonton Oilers for Game 3 of the 2024 Stanley Cup Final on Thursday. Florida secured a 4-1 victory in Game 2 and leads two games to none in its second consecutive appearance in the Stanley Cup Final. The Panthers enter Thursday's showdown having won five consecutive games, while the Oilers are 4-1 in their past five games at home. 

    Opening faceoff at Rogers Place is set for 8 p.m. ET. Edmonton is a -137 favorite (risk $137 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Oilers vs. Panthers odds from SportsLine consensus, while Florida is the +116 underdog. The over/under for total goals scored is 5.5 (see the latest lines on our NHL odds page).

    Before making any Panthers vs. Oilers picks, you NEED to see the latest NHL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

    This model simulates every NHL game 10,000 times, taking into account factors like current form, individual matchups, injuries and short- and long-term trends when making NHL picks. It entered the 2024 Stanley Cup Final on a 7-4 run on top-rated puck-line picks.   

    The model knows Edmonton failed to capitalize on numerous scoring opportunities in the series opener but grabbed a 1-0 lead in Game 2 on its first shot of the contest. Mattias Ekholm recorded the goal for Edmonton, which ranks first in the postseason with 15 tallies from its defensemen. Captain Connor McDavid notched his 27th assist of the playoffs in Game 2 and needs four more to match the all-time record for most in one postseason set in 1988 by the legendary Wayne Gretzky.

    It also is aware that Florida is receiving a huge effort in the Stanley Cup Final from Rodrigues, who has beaten Oilers goaltender Stuart Skinner on all three of his shots in the series. The 30-year-old center, who is in his first season with the Panthers, netted just three tallies in 17 games over the first three rounds of the playoffs - including two in Game 3 of the second-round matchup against the Boston Bruins. Florida, which is 4-0 in best-of-seven series when winning the first two contests, has allowed a total of six goals during its current five-game winning streak.

    Now, the model has set its sights on Oilers vs. Panthers in Game 3 of the 2024 Stanley Cup Final. We can tell you it's leaning Over on the goal total, but it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NHL picks of your own.
