The Minnesota Wild had been riding hot with wins in six of seven. However, they have since dropped back-to-back games, allowing five goals in each. Now they hit the road to take on the Vancouver Canucks, a team that has won three straight games and six out of their last eight. Minnesota will hope to bounce back while the Canucks aim to keep on trucking forward.

This game continues to hover around a pick’em on the NHL odds, with a total of 6.5.

Wild vs. Canucks NHL Betting Odds

Minnesota is 4-1 in their past five games overall and 5-1 in their last six games against teams from the Western Conference. As for the total, the over has hit in their last seven games overall and all six of their recent games against teams from the Western Conference.

On the other hand, Vancouver is 5-0 against teams from the Western Conference and 4-1 in their last five against teams with a winning record. They are also 6-2 in their last eight games overall. When it comes to the total, the over is 7-1-1 in their last nine against teams from the Central Division.

Minnesota Wild

The Wild continue to get incredible production out of Kirill Kaprizov on the offensive end. Kaprizov leads the team with 34 points on the season, including 17 goals. The star winger has notched at least one point in each of his last eight games now with no sign of slowing down. He’s close to cracking the top five in points scored by a single player with Nikita Kucherov at fifth with 38 points, just four ahead.

On the back end, we might be seeing Marc-Andre Fleury get a rest game. He’s started in the crease for the last three games but it could be time that he gets a night off. He’s allowed 13 tallies in his last three. Filip Gustavsson would be the option to lean on if that’s true. Gustavsson is 4-4-1 with a 2.75 GAA and a .909 save percentage on the season.

Vancouver Canucks

Vancouver is on a three-game winning streak but the margins of victory have been narrow as every single one of those victories has come in overtime. Their victory against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday extended that streak. In fact, their last four wins overall have been overtime wins. There’s one thing that can be said for certain: the Canucks are not a team you want to bet on the lines that don’t include overtime.

Spencer Martin was able to lock down the crease in their recent overtime win against the Sharks. He’ll likely get another start against the Wild here. Martin hasn’t had the best statistical season with a 3.48 GAA and an .890 save percentage t. He’s been a factor in their 30th-ranked defence this season.
