EDMONTON OILERS vs. MINNESOTA WILD PREDICTIONS

The Oilers are in second place in the Pacific Division with 90 points through 73 games, while the Wild are in second place in the Central Division with 94 points through 71 games. Both teams are headed for the postseason, and every point counts as teams are jockeying for seeding and home-ice advantage in the postseason.

Edmonton saw its six-game win streak snapped last time out on Saturday against Colorado, falling 2-1 in a shootout as the UNDER connected for the third consecutive outing.

Minnesota doubled up Los Angeles, the team chasing Edmonton for second in the Pacific Division, winning 6-3. That snapped a two-game mini skid, while the OVER has connected in three in a row.

EDMONTON OILERS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 42-25-6
  • ATS: 34-39
  • O/U: 38-32-3

Edmonton has dropped each of the first two meetings this season against Minnesota, including a 7-3 loss at home on Feb. 20 as the OVER was taken care by the Wild themselves. In the first meeting, also in Edmonton, the Wild picked up a 4-1 win behind Cam Talbot on Dec. 7. Perhaps the third time is a charm for Edmonton.

The Oilers have won six of the past seven games overall, while going 6-1 in the past seven against the Western Conference, too. But they're just 2-5 in the past seven against Central Division foes, while going 0-4 in the past four as an underdog, and 0-5 in the past five as a road 'dog.

For totals, the OVER has cashed in 10 of the past 14 games overall, while going 7-3 in the past 10 inside the Western Conference, and 5-2 in the past seven against the Central Division.

MINNESOTA WILD BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

They're also 39-12 in the past 51 as a home favorite, while going 5-2 in the past seven against the Western Conference. Minnesota has been stacking wins, too, going 23-9 in the past 32 following a victory.

EDMONTON OILERS vs. MINNESOTA WILD BETTING CONCLUSION

The Oilers have really, really struggled against the Wild over the years. They're just 7-25 in the past 32 trips to St. Paul, while winning 18 of the past 64 in the series overall. Minnesota has outscored Edmonton 11-4 in the first two meetings this season, too.

Edmonton has struggled defensively and on goaltending across the past three games, yielding three or more goals in every outing, an average of 4.33 goals per game allowed. The OVER has cashed in each of the games. The OVER-UNDER split in the first two meetings this season, but the way the Oilers are playing lately, playing the OVER is your best bet in this game, with Minnesota on the puck line worth a small-unit play.
