Blackhawks have rough recent history vs Wild

The Chicago Blackhawks skate into the Xcel Center to play the Minnesota Wild tonight and if recent history plays any part, it could be a tough visit for the ’Hawks. Chicago is a brutal 2-9 SU in its last 11 road games and opened as +109 dogs against the Wild.

SHARK BITES
  • Chicago is 3-7 SU in its last 10 games when playing Minnesota.
  • The total has gone over in 8 of Minnesota’s last 12 games.
  • Corey Crawford ranks 3rd in NHL in save percentage.

Minnesota, who has won three of their last four, may finally be turning the corner this season after an awful start. Going 4-2 SU in their last six games, the Wild have jumped back into playoff contention and are desperate for another win before embarking on a four-game road trip. Opening at +230, the -1.5 puckline for the Wild could be a sneaky bet to wager on.

Chicago, on the flip side, has yet to find their groove to start the year and it’s reflected in their record. The Blackhawks are 2-5 SU in their last seven and 2-7 ATS in their last nine. Currently fifth in the Central Division, Chicago has an uphill battle if they plan to retain their division crown.

The total opened at 5.5 for this matchup and bettors should consider the OVER, opening at -105. Goals should come in this matchup as both the Wild and Blackhawks rank in the top half of the NHL in goals scored per game. Another important trend to pay attention to is the total going OVER in four of the last five games these rivals have played vs each other. It’s shaping up to be another score-fest in St. Paul.
