The betting market nearly positioned the Stanley Cup Final as a coinflip matchup but the Florida Panthers have dominated the series so far and are now -450 favorites at DraftKings.

The Edmonton Oilers have been outscored 7-1 while dropping the first two games, as the series shifts to Canada for Game 3. The Oilers are +360 to rally to win the series.

Florida blanked Edmonton with a 3-0 win in Game 1 that saw goalie Sergei Bobrovsky record 32 saves and hold Edmonton to its lowest output this entire postseason.

The Oilers opened the scoring in Game 2 but the Panthers tied the game in the second period before taking the lead for good in the third period.

The Panthers began the series as -140 favorites.

A Canadian-based team has not won the championship since the 1993 Montreal Canadiens.
