Bet NHL Action For Saturday, March 24, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Minnesota opened as a -120 favorite before the line shifted in Nashville's favor. The total has stayed at 5.5 goals. The Predators range from a -115 to a -109 favorite, while the Wild are between a +100 and -105 underdog. The total is at 5.5 everywhere.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets are siding with the visiting Predators. Online wager info also says that 52 percent of bets are on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Nashville center Calle Jarnkrok (upper body) is out indefinitely. For the Wild, defenseman Jared Spurgeon (hamstring) is out until mid-April. Center Luke Kunin (knee) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Wild won 6-4 and 4-2 on their home ice versus the Predators this season, while Nashville returned the favor at home with a 3-0 victory. Once again the series shifts to Minnesota, where the Wild are 24-6-5-1 on the season. Meanwhile, the Predators are an outstanding 23-7-3-3 on the road. Nashhille had a four-game win streak snapped with a 5-2 home loss to the Maple Leafs last game. Minnesota had a modest two-game winning streak snapped as it lost 4-3 at home to the Kings five days ago. The difference for me here is that the Wild have had plenty of time to rest, while the Preds only had one off day between games. Go with the hosts here.
