Money Line Pick

The Blues come in on a three-game winning streak after dismantling Dallas in their last game. St. Louis is looking to push for the number one seed in the Western Conference, while Minnesota is still fighting for a playoff spot. The Wild trail Calgary by only 3 points. Minnesota is on a two-game win streak of their own after beating Edmonton in their last game. The Wild should have a slight advantage here because they have proven to be a very good home team. Posting a 17-9-5 record in their own arena is up there for one of the best records at home. St. Louis are 1-7 in their last 8 vs. Central an also 2-9 in their last 11 road games. Because of the success the Wild have shown at home, I lean their way to get the win.

Over Under Pick

This is a total that is hard to gauge because we have two pretty evenly matched scoring teams. The Blues average about 3.1 while the Wild average 3 goals. Minnesota does play better defense at home, allowing just 2.74 goals per game. Also, note that both teams are allowing less than 2.2 goals over their last five games. That being said, I lean to the under here.
