      Their defense will step up in a big way, and the offense will just score enough to come out ahead.

    • The Minnesota Wild haven't had much success when playing on the end of a back to back, and they've been really hit or miss lately defensively. The Colorado Avalanche have been an automatic play on their home ice the last couple of months. So, while the Wild have had the upperhand over Colorado recently, I'm going to back the Avalanche on their home ice given the amount of success they've had this season at the Pepsi Center.

    • Pick: Minnesota Wild +130 (BEST UNDERDOG PLAY TODAY)

      As hard as the Avalanche will be pulling to put in a win here, the Avs will fall short. That is because the Wild wants to pick up even more wins here. The Wild will out match the Avs players on the ice as well and this will lead to the Avs dropping the game. Wild win a wild game here 4-3.

    • The Minnesota Wild have been on fire of late, but can they keep it going against a Colorado team that has played well at home? I feel that they can. The Avs have been inconsistent this year and while they have allowed just 2.39 gpg here at home for the year, we note that the Wild have been hot offensively as they have put up 24 goals in their last five games. The Avs have struggled on offense of late as they have averaged just 2.70 gpg over their last 10 games, while the Wild have allowed just 2.40 gpg over their last 10. The Wild have taken four of the last five in this series and that is the clincher.

      Pick: Minnesota -115
