Minnesota Wild vs. Vegas Golden Knights - 2/11/20 NHL Pick, Odds & Prediction
Vegas Golden Knights at Minnesota Wild
Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at 8:00 PM (Xcel Energy Center)
VEG -130 O:U 6
The Vegas Golden Knights go to Minneapolis, Minnesota to take on the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday at the Xcel Energy Center. The Golden Knights are coming off of a loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, that saw the Golden Knights lose the game in a shootout. The Golden Knights have still won three of their last five games, but have been a bit inconsistent as of late.
The Vegas Golden Knights are 29-21-7 on the season and are 14-11-4 on the road. The Vegas Golden Knights have jumped from fourth place in the Pacific Division to third place in the week and can inch closer to the top of the division with a win here, a place where the Golden Knights saw themselves not too long ago.
The Minnesota Wild are coming off of a loss to the Colorado Avalanche in their last game, giving up three goals in the second period to lose the game 3-2. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak, defeating the Chicago Blackhawks, Vancouver Canucks, and the Dallas Stars in their game prior to the Avalanche.
The Wild hasn't had a remarkable season so far, having a record of 26-23-6. The Wild find themselves middle of the road offensively, but are one of the worst teams in the league in defense, allowing the seventh-most goals this season.
Vegas is 23-34 ATS this season
Golden Knights are 4-1 in their last five vs. Central.
Minnesota is 29-26 ATS this season
Wild are 3-8 in their last 11 games as a home underdog.
Despite the most recent loss at the Minnesota Wild suffered, the Minnesota Wild have played some terrific hockey as of late. I think that they showed that they can now compete and defeat a team like the Vegas Golden Knights, but I wouldn't bet on it. I still think that the Golden Knights are a much more talented team and that they will still be able to come away with a victory in this one. Final Score Prediction, Vegas Golden Knights win 4-3.
