The Wild are 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 16-7 in their last 23 overall. The Golden Knights are 36-15 in their last 51 home games and 47-21 in their last 68 overall. The over is 11-1 in Wild last 12 road games. The under is 9-1-1 in Golden Knights last 11 Saturday games. The Wild are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Vegas Golden Knights are going to be favored at home most nights and are a tough team to bet against in these sort of spots. However, the Minnesota Wild are playing solid hockey in their own right and have won three straight meetings this season against the Golden Knights, which includes a overtime win on Thursday. We're getting some nice value with the Wild and the plus money here. I'll take it.
