The Florida Panthers have the Stanley Cup within their grasp, having taken a commanding 3-0 lead in the series following a 4-3 victory in Game 3. Will the Oilers be able to respond and force the teams to head back to the Sunshine State, or will the Panthers become the first team since the Red Wings in 1998 to sweep the Stanley Cup Final? Let’s take a look at our best Stanley Cup Final Game 4 picks for 6/15.

Stanley Cup Final Game 4 Predictions

Pick #1 - Oilers ML over Panthers (-120)

Pick #2 - Over 5.5 Goals (+100)

Pick #3 - Evan Bouchard - Anytime Goalscorer (+450)

Stanley Cup Final Game 4 picks: Edmonton Oilers ML over Florida Panthers (-120)

The Oilers came into the 2024 Stanley Cup Final looking to bring the Cup back to Canada for the first time since 1993, but now that prospect looks as bleak as ever. Coming back from 3-0 is as daunting as it gets in sports, and it’s something that Edmonton experienced back in 1983 as well.

While we certainly can’t sit here and say that we expect them to win the Stanley Cup, we do have belief that they can force the teams to have to head all the way back down to South Florida for a Game 5. So, right off the bat, remaining on home ice certainly helps Connor McDavid and the boys.

Edmonton was also able to look strong through the first period, while the game was tied 1-1 and even brought it back to a one-goal game before ultimately falling 4-3. In other words, they have not been utterly outmatched in this series, and frankly, have been the better team for significant chunks of time in all three games.

Their issue is the inability to put together a full 60 minutes. For example, three of the Panthers’ four goals in Game 3 came within just 6:19 of the second period. Without those defensive lapses, along with the team yet again going 0-for-3 on the power play, the Oilers can absolutely compete with Florida. If not now, when? With their backs against the wall, we’ll take Edmonton forcing a Game 5.

Stanley Cup Final Game 4 picks: Over 5.5 Goals (+100)

What did come to fruition that was expected heading into the series was a high-scoring game. The first two contests in Florida were far from that, but the seven goals in Game 3 are more of what we expected prior to the start of the 2024 Stanley Cup Final.

The expected goals in Game 1 also support high-scoring games between these teams, and of course with the likes of McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Aleksander Barkov on the ice, goals should be expected. Barkov being healthy only further supports this, and Edmonton finally proved that Florida goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is human.

He will likely still go on to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, but that doesn’t mean that the Oilers can’t put a few past him. Along with Edmonton goaltender Stuart Skinner having given up a few goals in all three games thus far, we expect six or more goals tonight.

Stanley Cup Final Game 4 picks: Evan Bouchard - Anytime Goalscorer (+450)

Leon Draisaitl was able to come through for us in terms of his shots on goal in Game 3, as we expected him to take out his frustrations on finding the back of the net rather than Barkov’s jaw. While he didn’t end up getting one by Sergei Bobrovsky, he looks destined to do so in Game 4, but we’re actually going to provide even more value with a goalscorer.

That would be Evan Bouchard. Up until the Stanley Cup Final, he had been having an absolutely stellar postseason. Despite being a defenseman, his 28 points are still the second-most in the playoffs, behind only McDavid. He even took more shots than McDavid in Game 3 with six of them.

He was beaten defensively twice in Game 3, so now he’s the one that we expect to come out on fire. This time, not only will he likely shoot early and often, but we expect him to get one by Bobrovsky.
