Randy’s Free Pick

The Minnesota Wild are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home and the Sabres issues on the road are well documented. However, we're getting big plus money with a hot Sabres side, and they've had success against the Wild in recent meetings. It's hard to turn down the plus money here with the Sabres given their current form.
