Bet on Wild vs. Blackhawks

The Wild have had plenty of time to freshen up and prepare for this game. They'll be rolling out their No. 1 goalie, Devan Dubnyk, and have the structured approach to take down a powerful squad such as the Blackhawks. We like the Wild in this spot to earn their first win of the season.
