Let’s check the latest NHL odds, stats, injury reports, and NHL lines for Wild vs Predators. We’ve plenty of NHL betting odds for you to consider.
Back to Fleury?
Sunday’s loss against the Sharks was surprising, as San Jose had lost five of six entering the match. It was the first time this season the Sharks strung together consecutive victories.
If the Wild are to rebound, they will need Marc-Andre Fleury to lead the way. Fleury has been good, but not great, as the starter, 6-3-1 record, 2.87 goals-against and a .905 save percentage.
Flashes of top-tier play recently, evidenced by a .948 save percentage this month. The team has been mixing in understudy Filip Gustavsson a lot more, the lesser workload has seemingly helped Fleury.
Gustavsson was in net in the team’s last game, so a fresh Fleury should give the Wild an edge in this one.
Preds Whipped Rangers
It’s only one game, but Nashville taking down the potent New York Rangers could signal a change in momentum. Nashville was outshot, 35-18, roding the hot goalie to get the victory.
Juuse Saros made 34 saves. He’s now 4-6-1 record, 3.22 GAA and .901 save percentage.
If the Predators are to build on this, they need to improve a power play that’s converting just 14.6 percent (8-of-55) of its chances. That’s the third-worst mark in the NHL.

Wild vs Predators Prediction
These two teams are fairly even, making it hard to find a winner if you bet online. However, the total seems to be leaning toward under here.
Nashville is a team that can’t convert on power plays, and labors offensively. Meanwhile, it is coming off a game where Saros was strong. As for the Wild, Fleury has a .948 save percentage this month.
Six goals is a pretty tough ‘ask’ of two struggling teams. Expect a low-scoring affair.
Both teams are listed at -110 in our Vegas lines. This means that if you wager $100 on either side, you have a chance to win $91.
