Let’s take a look at some betting trends for this match-up. Minnesota is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games and 5-13 SU in its last 18 games on the road. Minnesota is 10-3 SU in its last 13 games when playing Florida and 5-2 SU in its last 7 games when playing on the road against Florida. On the other side, Florida is 3-6 SU in its last 9 games. Florida is third worst offensive team in the league at 2.2 goals per game. Also, Florida allows the second most power plays in the league at 4.0 per game. Minnesota is third in the league in shots at 32.7 per game. Minnesota is third last in the league in power play goals with 0.3 per game. Also, Minnesota has the best shots against in the league allowing 24.7 per game.
Minnesota has owned Florida in the past winning 7 out of the last 10 games. However, I believe that trend stops tonight as Ray Loungo will be in net for the Panthers tonight. Luongo is 5-1-1 with a 1.13 GAA and three shutouts in his last seven starts against the Wild. I think Lunogo is the difference maker tonight and gives the Panthers a slight advantage. Looking at the betting percentages also shows signs that “sharp” money may very well be on the Panthers tonight. Panthers line opened at 2.23 and has moved to 2.18 with &0% of all Off-Shore bettors siding with the Wild tonight. I believe the public and Wild will both lose tonight. Best of Luck!!!
