It has been a brutal opening to the NHL season for the Wild and those that bet on hockey have had to avoid Minnesota a little bit early this season.
Hockey betting has this game as the fourth of a five-game road trip for the Wild. It is also the first of a back-to-back in hockey betting as the Wild at are Vancouver tomorrow night. After tomorrow’s game, the Minnesota Wild will have played six of their first seven games to start the season on the road. The NHL definitely did them no favors early in the season with that schedule. It is the opener of a three-game homestand for the Oilers.
The Wild have done pretty well in hockey betting at the online sportsbook of late versus Edmonton. The Wild have won six of the last ten meetings against the Oilers. Minnesota won four of the six meetings in hockey betting last year against the Oilers but they were just 1-2 at Edmonton.
There is not much to go on with the online sportsbook total in this hockey betting matchup. Three of the last four games have landed right on the number which was five goals. The other game was a 3-0 Minnesota win in hockey betting at the sports book.
It is hard to gauge the Wild so far this hockey betting season. They have played virtually all of their games on the road and some teams are simply better at home than on the road. That could be the case with Minnesota in hockey betting this year. They shouldn’t be discounted in this game though because they have had success in hockey betting against the Oilers.
The Oilers have played most of their games at home this season and have done about what they normally do, which is play .500 hockey. There is just not much to get excited about with Edmonton at the sports book. They can play well and impact hockey betting odds at times and other times they look flat and play uninspired hockey.
