Arizona is 20-47 in their last 67 road games and 5-22 in their last 27 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Arizona’s last 5 road games. Minnesota is 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 11-5 in their last 16 games against the Western Conference. The under is 6-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 7 home games. The over is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
Arizona has really struggled lately and comes into this game on a seven game losing streak, while Minnesota has lost three of their last four games. Minnesota will have the home ice advantage and is the much better defensive team in this matchup. Arizona has allowed at least four goals in four of their last five games and I think it will be more of the same here. I am taking the over.
