Minnesota opened as a -140 favorite before the line moved up. The total has gone down after opening at 5.5. If you shop around, the Wild can be found as low as a -131 favorite at some books. The total is at 5 everywhere but with a lot of juice at some places, so keep an eye for it shifting back to 5.5.


As of Tuesday afternoon, 73 percent of public bets have come in on Minnesota. Online wager info also shows that 63 percent of bets are being placed on the over.


St. Louis defenseman Robert Bortuzzo is out indefinitely after sustaining a knee injury four days ago. For the Wild, defenseman Jonas Brodin is probable tonight with a hand injury.


Not much to read into here. St. Louis has lost six games in a row and are a respectable 15-11-4-0 on the road. Minnesota has won four in a row and is dominant on its home ice at 21-5-5-1. Take the home team here as they are playing the much better hockey and rarely lose in front of their fans.
