Bettors will typically find daily odds boosts for multiple events at the best sports betting sites. Friday’s Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final is no exception.

As noted, all Caesars Sportsbook customers can haul in a +320 odds boost (originally +280) on the Oilers to win and center Leon Draisaitl to score a goal. This bet is essentially a same-game parlay, allowing users to bet on multiple aspects of a sporting event.

At BetMGM and FanDuel, this SGP is around +260 odds. Therefore, Caesars is providing an edge of nearly four percentage points.

Draisaitl has yet to find the back of the net in this Cup Final. However, he’s tied for second among playoff participants in goals scored (10) and third in points (30). If Draisailt’s effort helps the Oilers book another trip to Florida, they would be the first team to force a Game 7 after trailing 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Final since 1945.

That season, the Red Wings failed to complete their valiant comeback attempt versus the Maple Leafs. Ironically, Toronto is the lone team in Cup Final history to do so, taking down Detroit three years prior. Edmonton’s best odds to manufacture the same result are .

Will McDavid Make History?

Before the puck dropped in Game 5, Oilers superstar Connor McDavid was stationed around +700 to take home the Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the most valuable player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association. Nevertheless, McDavid’s price tag makes him the odds-on favorite, equivalent to a 67.7% implied probability as of this publishing.

The Conn Smythe has been given to a player on the losing team five times, including one occasion in the last 33 years. Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere did so against his counterpart Martin Brodeur and the Devils in 2003.

Like bettors, voters are prone to recency bias. To accomplish this historic feat, a player from the runner-up side of the script must exhibit a mind-blowing performance. McDavid has delivered that in countless playoff games — most recently tallying consecutive four-point outings for the first time in Stanley Cup Final history.

Widely considered the world’s best hockey player, McDavid may hoist the Conn Smythe Trophy in Edmonton even if the Panthers celebrate with the Stanley Cup.
