The New York Islanders and the Minnesota Wild meet in NHL action from the Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Minnesota is listed as a -150 home favorite while New York is a +130 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For the Islanders, Mathew Barzal and J-G Pageau are both out indefinitely while Oliver Wahlstrom is out for the season. For the Wild, Jonas Brodin is out indefinitely with a lower body injury.
Minnesota’s 3-1 over the Islanders back on January 12th, 2023, made it three straight wins for the Wild in this head-to-head matchup.
New York is 4-10 in their last 14 road games and 3-9 in their last 12 games against the Central division while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games overall. Minnesota is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 21-6 in their last 27 games against the Metropolitan division while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record.
I’m sticking with the under here. Winnipeg’s having trouble scoring to begin with but now come into a matchup between two of the hotter goalies in the game right now in Gustafsson and Sorokin and two goaltenders that are capable of stealing a game on their own. Give me the under here.
