The Wild are 13-5 in their last 18 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 Monday games. The Sharks are 3-7 in their last 10 Monday games and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The under is 5-1 in Wild last 6 road games. The under is 4-1 in Sharks last 5 home games. The Wild are 7-17 in the last 24 meetings in San Jose and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings. The oad team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

This is just one of those games where I'm not running to the window to back either side, as both clubs have been inconsistent up to this point and hard to grab a feel. What we do know for sure is that the Wild and Sharks have issues finding the back of the net with consistency, and five of the last seven meetings between these clubs have seen the under. Instead of picking a side, I'll predict a low scoring contest here and back the under.
