Minnesota is 12-4 in their last 16 games and 5-1 in their last 6 road games. The over is 6-0 in Minnesota’s last 6 games. New Jersey is 9-4 in their last 13 home games and 21-10 in their last 31 games. The over is 5-2 in New Jersey’s last 7 home games. Minnesota is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings. 


New Jersey comes into this game after losing three of their last four games, but they are coming off of a nice win against Tampa Bay. Minnesota has alternated wins and losses over their last five games and is battling for first place in the Central Division. Both teams are allowing 2.67 goals against per game, but New Jersey has been the much better offensive team this year. These two teams have played in higher scoring games recently, so I am taking the over here.
