Wild vs Oilers Moneyline Pick: Oilers (-190)

The home team has won each game in the series this season, and that trend should continue as Edmonton hosts the final game between the Wild and Oilers.

Though the Wild have picked up some big wins, including a 10-7 comeback defeat of Vancouver, they have remained largely inconsistent. Following that 10-goal onslaught against the Canucks, Minnesota scored three goals in a loss against Winnipeg as its defense has continued to struggle to slow down teams.

Minnesota is in the bottom 10 in the league, giving up 3.34 goals a game, and in its last five games, it has allowed four a game. That should spell trouble for the Wild as they face the hot offense of Edmonton, which is fifth in the league in scoring and averaging 5.2 goals in its last five.

With the Oilers at home and their offense continuing to roll, Minnesota’s unlikely to be able to slow them down enough to keep up, which should be the difference in the game to help Edmonton secure the win.

 

Wild vs Oilers Player Prop Pick: Joel Eriksson Ek Anytime Goal (+200)

Eriksson Ek leads the Wild with 28 goals this season, and although grabbing him to keep up his six-game point streak is a more secure NHL bet, taking him to find the back of the net is a more valuable play.

Eriksson Ek has scored a goal in four of his last five games, scoring seven goals in that time, and he has been solid on the road as well. In 27 road games, he has 13 goals and he also has two goals in two games against Edmonton this season.
