Connor McDavid scored three goals and added an assist in a dominating performance to lead the Edmonton Oilers to a 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Thursday night in Edmonton.

Leon Draisaitl collected four assists, while Mikko Koskinen made 38 saves for the Oilers, who responded with an emphatic win one night after dropping a disappointing 5-3 home game to the Canucks in their season-opening clash.

McDavid, who was held off the scoresheet in the opener on his 24th birthday, was a force all night and had a hand in his team's first four goals, starting with the Ryan Nugent-Hopkins power-play tally 7:59 into the clash -- a rebound goal.

Then it became all about McDavid, who collected his seventh career regular-season hat trick and 13th four-point game.

McDavid's first goal came on a rebound with 0.7 seconds left in the opening period to make it a 2-0 count, finishing a play after a won face-off in the offensive zone.

After Nate Schmidt put the Canucks on the board with a point-shot blast at the 3:24 mark of the second period, McDavid replied five minutes later with a trademark goal. McDavid gained the puck at his own blueline, blazed down the ice with his tremendous speed and deposited a wrist shot from the slot.

Tyler Motte again pulled the Canucks within a goal when he neatly deflected a Travis Hamonic point shot just past the midway point of the game, but McDavid restored his team's two-goal edge before the second intermission by converting his own rebound chance at the 15:08 mark of the frame.

Nugent-Hopkins added a second goal with 8:18 remaining to cap a three-point outing. Kailer Yamamoto collected a pair of assists in the win.

Thatcher Demko stopped 41 shots for the Canucks, who next travel to Calgary for another two-game set of games that begins on Saturday before returning home for their home opener.

The Oilers next play host to the Montreal Canadiens for a pair of games.

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.
