The Wild are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 6-1 in their last 7 overall. The Golden Knights are 24-8 in their last 32 home games and 36-15 in their last 51 overall. The over is 5-1 in Wild last 6 overall. The under is 7-1 in Golden Knights last 8 overall. The underdog is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Minnesota Wild are playing good hockey right now to where they're worth consideration in the underdog role. However, it's hard to turn down Vegas and cheap prices, especially at home where they've been one of the top teams in the league since joining the league. The Vegas Golden Knights also just beat the Wild on Sunday in overtime, a game where they trailed 2-4 entering the third period. Confidence boosting performance. I'll back the Golden Knights at home.
