Betting Odds

Ducks +117 / Wild -127
5.5un -120

The Minnesota Wild host the Anaheim Ducks at the Xcel Energy Center on Saturday February 16th, 2018. On the NHL betting board the Wild hold the favorite role listed at -127 with the O/U line at 5.5.

Thursday’s 3-2 victory against Chicago as a -116 road favorite was Anaheim's third win in its last eight games and the total has stayed UNDER in its previous four outings. This lack of consistency has the Ducks holding on to the fourth spot in the Pacific Division standings with 67 total points. One issue has been an offensive effort that is 23rd in the league in scoring with 2.7 goals per game. Anaheim has scored a total of nine goals in its last four games.

The Wild have gone 6-3-1 over their last 10 games, but they are coming off a 5-2 loss at home to Washington on Thursday as -145 favorites. The loss by Minnesota was just their second in their last seven home games as part of an overall 20-5-5 record at home this season.

Anaheim at Minnesota NHL Game Prediction 02/17/2018

Minnesota is tied for the second-most home victories this season in the Western Conference. Given Thursday’s setback, I feel confident that the Wild quickly respond to an off night at the Xcel Energy Center with a win on Saturday.
