The Wild are 8-3 in their last 11 games playing on 0 days rest and 5-0 in their last 5 overall. The Sharks are 4-10 in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-7 in their last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in Wild last 7 overall. The over is 5-2-1 in Sharks last 8 home games. The Wild are 8-19 in the last 27 meetings in San Jose and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings. The home team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Minnesota Wild are on the end of a back to back, but I'm not sure it matters, as they're piling up the wins left and right and haven proven time and time again they can win in these sort of schedule spots. The San Jose Sharks are on the opposite end with their seven-game losing streak and playing at home hasn't helped all that much. The Wild have also won five of the seven meetings this season against the Sharks. You can argue this price should be a lot steeper than it is. Give me the Wild.
