NHL Hockey - Preview
If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Saturday when the Minnesota Wild and the Chicago Blackhawks meet at United Center.
Last time out for Minnesota, they were a 3-1 winner as they battled the Hurricanes at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Wild at -147 were rewarded, while the 4 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
Chicago lost its last outing, a 6-5 result against the Lightning on October 24. Bettors who backed the Lightning at +102 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (11) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
