Dubnyk To Make Back-to-Back Starts For Streaking Wild

The Flames were one of just two teams not in action last night and will have fresh legs for their home game against the Minnesota Wild. Minny has been unbelievable the last couple of months and has become the best puckline bet in the NHL. The Wild have gone 18-5 against the spread in their last 23 games but will be in tough in the second half of a back-to-back as they’ll play a team that hasn’t seen action since last Thursday.

  • The Wild are 0-3 SU and on the puckline in their last 3 games against the Flames.
  • The Flames are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Wild's last 7 games.

A trend that seems to pay off almost every year is that scoring goes up when teams get rest. That was evident by the 11-2-1 OVER/UNDER record last night in the first slate since the all-star game and with Wild tendy Devan Dubnyk playing his second game in as many nights, that trend could continue this evening.

I know the Wild have a reputation as being a highly disciplined team but this year they’ve added a scoring element and they’ve become one of the highest-scoring teams in the league. During the month of January, they posted an OVER/UNDER record of 10-2-1 as they outscored their opponents by a wide margin.

The Wild should be a good play on the away puckline tonight if you can get them for +170 or better.
