Bet Underdog Wild at Home vs Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes and Minnesota Wild will meet for the second time in just over a month on Tuesday night. The Wild will be trying to grab the season sweep after winning the first game over Carolina 5-2 while also continuing to make a late push for the playoffs. With 62 points and winning three of its last four, Minnesota is currently just four points out of a wild-card spot. Despite NHL picks for Feb. 27 favoring Carolina, the Wild have a solid chance at drawing one game closer to that spot with another win on Tuesday.

Hurricanes vs Wild Moneyline Pick: Wild +125

The Wild have been making a push recently to secure a playoff berth, and their strong play should continue as they return home from a three-game road trip.

Minnesota’s offense has been playing well with 22 goals in its last four games, including a 10-goal outing against Vancouver, but its defense is what should help it get the win over the Hurricanes.

Carolina averages 3.28 goals this season, but it has slowed down a bit recently, averaging 2.6 goals in its last five. The Hurricanes haven’t scored three goals in any of their last three games, and they may have trouble scoring once more against the Wild, which has held teams to 3.33 goals in their last three games and Carolina to two their last time out.

With the odds offering solid value of taking the Wild at home, and Minnesota playing better recently as it looks to sneak into the playoffs, taking the Wild to get it done once more is a solid NHL pick.

 

Hurricanes vs Wild Player Prop Pick: Kirill Kaprizov At Least One Assist (-114)

Kaprizov has been able to find his scoring again recently, but his assists haven’t slowed down either. Kaprizov has 37 assists this season and has recorded an assist in each of his last eight games.

His production has been even better at home as well with 19 assists in 24 games. He had a hat trick against Carolina last month and his ability to get involved in the action recently should make him a strong play once more Tuesday.
