The Oilers took care of business in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and they've opened as favorites for Game 6 at home where they will attempt to become just the second team in NHL history to come back from 0-3 deficit in the Finals. The Oilers are now the fourth team to force a Game 6 in Stanley Cup Final after falling behind 0-3 and the first since the New Jersey Devils did it in 2012.

Edmonton opened as -126 favorites at home with a puck spread of -1.5 (+202), according to odds at FanDuel, the country's most popular sportsbook. Conversely, the Panthers are +104 underdogs with a puck spread of +1.5 (-250). The total is 5.5 with the over vigged to -105 and under vigged to -115.

While the Oilers had been as long as +720 to win it all down three games to one, Edmonton is now +275 at bet365 to pull off the miracle upset, meaning a $100 wager would profit $275. The Oilers had been as long as +1150 when down three games after Game 3.

Edmonton has come into its own offensively of late, putting up 13 goals over the last two games after sputtering for the first three games. The Oilers scoring eight goals in Game 4 and five in Game 5.

On the backs of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, the Oilers are on the doorstep of history. McDavid is now five points away from tying Wayne Gretzky (47) for the most points in a postseason run after back-to-back games with four points.

While the market still considers the Oilers — rightfully — an underdog to win it all, momentum is on their side. The Oilers went from +1300 to hoist the cup entering Game 4 to +240 entering Game 6, while the Panthers moved from -3000 to -300 after dropping the past two games of the series.
