Taking the Wild for 8* here...

Minnesota dominated the Ducks last game and lost. Minnesota is at the top of the league right now with 61.5% expected goals at 5 on 5. Granted, they played the Kings twice and Ducks once (not exactly the toughest competition), but they showed they could play solid hockey against bad teams (which the Ducks certainly qualify as). They just need to be able to put this one away with some scoring.

The Ducks have generated only 40% of expected goals, including last game only 35% against the Wild. They have two wins this season so far and they should really have zero if not for their goalie stealing games.

Good luck!


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
