The Wild are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 18-8 in their last 26 overall. The Blues are 7-19 in their last 26 home games and 1-7 in their last 8 overall. The under is 5-2 in Wild last 7 overall. The under is 6-1 in Blues last 7 overall. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Minnesota Wild have simply been the better team this season and have played the better hockey lately as well. The St. Louis Blues are talented and could break out of this funk eventually, but it's going to take more than one win over Vegas for me to jump onboard. The Blues are still a losing team at the moment and playing at home hasn't really helped them. We're getting a very cheap price with the Wild. I'll take it.
