Stadium: Xcel Energy Center (Saint Paul)
Buffalo unexpectedly defeated Winnipeg in the previous game and will now play away against Minnesota. Will the Sabres be able to pick up another win over the contentious side? Let’s pick a few options to bet on at once.Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Minnesota have lost two games in a row
Despite this, the Wild remain in 1st place in the Central Division and 1st place in the entire Western Conference. Nevertheless, two defeats in a row can hardly please Dean Evason and his team. Minnesota’s previous game against Carolina was postponed due to a slump in teammates. Perhaps the pause will do the Wild some good.
The bad stretch included losses to Los Angeles and Vegas. That’s how the Wild ended the road trip, in which they ended up winning two games out of 4.
Buffalo had a few quality games in a row
Before the 4-2 away win over Winnipeg, Don Granato’s team also picked up points at home against Washington, losing 2-3 in a shootout. An important, albeit local, success for Buffalo, who are again in contention for nothing this season. The team is in 6th place in the Atlantic Division, nine points behind the wild-card zone in the East.
Expert Betting Tips
Minnesota should benefit from a pause due to the game’s cancellation against Carolina. Under Dean Evason, Kirill Kaprizov’s team has yet to lose three straight. It likely won’t happen now either. Buffalo are not an opponent against whom Minnesota can afford to lose points.
The prediction is a win for Minnesota.
- Handicap 1 (-1.5) for 1.80;
- Handicap 1 (-2) for 2.03;
- Minnesota to win by exactly 3 pucks for around 5.00.
