NHL Betting Picks, #8

MIN @ DAL 8:30 PM ET

In the eighth game today, we have the Minnesota Wild (4-7) visiting the Dallas Stars (4-8-1). Head-to-head Dallas has won the last three meetings and are 6-4 in their last ten matchups with the Wild.

In the Standings:

Dallas is only one point ahead of Minnesota for last place, while the Wild have two games in hand. A win for Minnesota would mean that Dallas would fall to the basement of the Central Division standings.

Trends for the Stars:

4-11 in their last fifteen. 1-4 against opponents from the Western Conference. 2-3 at home.

Trends for the Wild:

4-9 in their last thirteen. 1-5 in their last six vs Dallas. 1-8 in their last eight on the road. Won 3 of last 4 games this season.

Pick Analysis:

The NHL Prediction Model gives the Dallas Stars a slight edge over Minnesota at 53.20%. Statistically, these teams are not much different. As for trends, the Stars have the slight edge. However, I like the underdog, Minnesota Wild, to keep up their recent success and bury the Stars even further.

Take the Wild +130
