The Wild are 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 8-2 in their last 10 overall. The Sharks are 5-11 in their last 16 home games and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The under is 6-2 in Wild last 8 overall. The over is 19-8 in Sharks last 27 Monday games. The Wild are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in San Jose. The favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Minnesota Wild aren't getting the same headlines as other teams, but they've been on an absolute tear over the last month or so and the offensive production is improving on a consistent basis. The Wild have been money in the favorite role this season and they're a win away from being a top five most profitable team. The San Jose Sharks can't get out of their own way right now and playing at home hasn't helped all that much. I have to side with the Wild here and the price isn't too crazy, so I can avoid getting burned by the PL.
