In Edmonton's 73 games, the over has hit in over half of their games, going 38-34-1. So far, the team has been less likely to go over the betting line when playing on the road, going just 16-20-1. On the season, 64.0% of Edmonton's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 54.0% of the scoring coming from the Oilers. In Minnesota's 71 games, the over has hit in over half of their games, going 41-28-2. So far, taking the over when the Wild are playing at home has been a good bet with an over-under record of 22-11-1. On the season, 63.0% of Minnesota's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 54.0% of the scoring coming from the Wild. With an over-under goal line set at 6 goals, I see this game going over that number, as despite having the 10th ranked save percentage, Minnesota's goalies have struggled in high-danger scoring opportunities. I recommend taking the over.
