Minnesota Wild vs Calgary Flames Betting Odds
The Minnesota Wild are slight favourites to win tonight with the odds set at 120, while the Flames are at 166. The draw is at 346.
The total goals margin is set at 6 with -130 to go over and 101 for under.
The two teams are separated by only one point with two games left on the schedule. The Flames are in the front seat and with a win against the Wild will definitely claim it. What makes this game even more important is the fact that the St. Louis Blues are tied with Minnesota with 109 points and whoever losses this game may fall to fourth place and go against the Colorado Avalanche in a potential second round matchup.
Minnesota is 29-8-2 at home but the Flames have been dominating them in the past years winning the last four games with an average of 4.75 scored goals per game. This will be definitely a game with a playoff intensity meaning that there will not be much scoring as usual. Therefore, the suggested bet is on this one under 5.5 goals.
