Pick Analysis:

Game six of Thursday’s NHL picks is an easy one. The model favors the Nashville Predators at 54.25%. The model’s NHL picks are also undefeated when picking against the Wild. Additionally, after running the simulations Minnesota’s starting goaltender, Devan Dubynk, has been ruled out. The Predators dominate statistically and in recent trends. With a win over the Wild earlier this season and the Wild missing their net-minder, this pick is a no brainer.
