Edmonton Oilers Stanley Cup Betting

Last year was almost a lost year for the Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton opened with a record of 23-18-3 and was out of playoff position. In a desperation gamble, the Oilers fired head coach Dave Tippett and replaced him with their top minor league coach Jay Woodcraft. Edmonton responded with a 26-9-3 record under Woodcroft to gain the playoffs. And the Oil had a strong run to the Western Conference Final. Now the question is, where do the Oilers go from there?

Edmonton Oilers at a Glance

2022-2023 Stanley Cup Odds: +1600 (Aug, 2022)

Western Conference Odds: +700 (Aug, 2022)

Last year the Edmonton Oilers posted a record of 49-27-6 to finish second in the Pacific Division. Edmonton ranked 7th for goal scoring, 3rd for power efficiency, 18th for goals against, and 17th for penalty killing. The Oilers made the Western Conference Final, their deepest playoff run in 16 years. But their loss to the Colorado Avalanche in a sweep was a lesson on just how far the Oilers still have to go before being a serious contender.

General manager Ken Holland is best known for his building of a dynasty with the Detroit Red Wings. Holland won three Stanley Cups and turned Detroit into Hockey Town. Holland joined the Oilers in May 2019.

Head coach Jay Woodcroft made a tremendous impact in his brief time as the Oilers coach. He earned a three-year contract extension as a reward for his efforts.

Connor McDavid is a generational superstar. The first pick of the 2015 NHL Draft has transformed the Oiler franchise. McDavid is a 5-time NHL All-Star and two-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner as the NHL MVP. Last year McDavid scored a career-high 44 goals with 679 assists for 123 points. McDavid added 10 goals and 23 assists in 16 games in the playoffs.

Evander Kane rallied to save his career after Edmonton signed him in the middle of the season. Kane signed a 4-year extension after scoring 22 goals in 43 regular season games. He added 13 goals in 15 playoff matchups.

Jack Campbell arrives as the new starting goaltender. Campbell was solid with the Toronto Maple Leafs and was a 2022 NHL All-Star. Campbell posted a .914 save percentage in 2021-22 but fell to .897 in the playoffs. But his two-year body of work at TO had Edmonton fans and gamblers optimistic.

Edmonton Oilers History

The Oilers were born as a member of the World Hockey Association in 1972. They are best remembered for putting one of the greatest teams in NHL history on the ice in the 1980s. Edmonton won five Stanley Cups from 1984 through 1990. Those teams lit up the marquee with stars such as Paul Coffey, Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurri, and Mark Messier.

When Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in 1988, Canada mourned and burned then-owner Peter Pocklington in effigy. But in 1990, the remaining players rallied to win the franchise’s fifth and final Stanley Cup.

Following that last Stanley Cup, the Oilers suffered the same fate as other Canadian teams in the 1990s. The Canadian dollar was weak then, and there was no salary cap. But in 2006, the NHL was coming out of a lockout and lost season. The league was able to win a hard salary cap. Edmonton quickly took advantage and made the Stanley Cup final, losing to the Carolina Hurricanes in a thrilling series.

In 2015 the Oilers drafted a transformational player, Connor McDavid, first overall in the NHL Draft. McDavid was the spark that the franchise needed. But with his arrival came expectations that were over the top and perhaps unrealistic. McDavid’s arrival was the asset that sparked the creation of the Oilers' new arena that rates among the best in the world.

Additionally, the passionate Edmonton fan base has a level of faith that has been lacking since the days of Gretzky and Messier. And with the strong finish to the 2021-22 season, the Oilers are finally reaching their potential.
