Minnesota is 11-4 in their last 15 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 games as a road favorite while the under is 12-3 in their last 15 Tuesday games. Los Angeles is 1-5 in their last 6 games overall and 1-6 in their last 7 Tuesday games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home underdog.
I am having a hard time with this game because really, I don’t want anything to do with it if we’re being honest. Loa Angeles is back to driving the struggle bus and Minnesota hasn’t been anything special to write home about either. I think with everything being equal, I’ll back the under. I think at best we have a game here that hits 5 goals and stays there, so give me the under in this spot.
