Wild aim to tie up series at 2-2 vs Jets

The Minnesota Wild have held home serve and can even their series vs the Winnipeg Jets tonight in Game 4. The Wild trounced the Jets 6-2 in Game 3 and have won four of their last five games at the Xcel Center when hosting their divisional rival. Minnesota opened as a minuscule -117 favorite to get the victory.

SHARK BITES
  • The Jets are 6-2 SU in their last eight games vs the Wild.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Jets’ last five games.
  • Winnipeg is 1-5 ATS in its last six games on the road.

The Jets got on the board first in Game 3 and typically when they come out of the gate with a score, Winnipeg gets the victory as it was 37-10 SU this season when scoring first. But the Jets gave up two goals in the first period and goaltender Connor Hellebuyck got chased out of the net in the third after giving up six goals on 26 shots. While Hellebuyck has been stellar at home, his record on the road is suspect (14-13 SU in 27 starts) and the Jets may need to outscore the Wild if they plan to obtain their first road playoff win in franchise history.

Minnesota took advantage of its chances (2-for-3 on the power play) despite being outshot 31-29 in Game 3. Mikael Granlund led the way with a goal and an assist and goaltender Devan Dubnyk kept the Wild in the game by stopping all 12 of Winnipeg’s shots in the third period. At the Xcel Center, Minnesota is 11-1 SU in its last 12 divisional games and puckline bettors tonight could consider the Wild, who are 4-1 ATS in their last five at home.

The total opened at 5.5 and UNDER bettors have been profiting when these two teams clash as the UNDER has hit in three of the last four games in this matchup with an average combined score of 5.75 goals per game.
