NHL | Wild vs Blues
Play on: UNDER 6 -117

Wednesday NHL Free play. My selection is on the 'under' between Minnesota and St. Louis at 9:05 pm et on Wednesday.

We couldn't buy an 'under' result in this matchup a couple of weeks ago as the Wild and Blues skated to three straight 'overs' in Minnesota. The scene shifts to St. Louis on Wednesday and I look for a reversal of that trend, noting that the 'under' has cashed in three of the last five meetings here in the Show-Me State. The Wild just keep rolling along offensively, having now scored four goals or more in five of their last six games overall. It's worth noting that all of those games were played on home ice though. Minnesota has been a slightly weaker offensive team on the road this season, averaging 3.0 goals per game compared to its 3.3 goals per game season scoring average. Since that three-game set in Minnesota, St. Louis has posted a 1-4 o/u record over its last five contests, allowing just 2.6 goals per game over that stretch. Note that the 'under' has gone 16-6 with the Wild coming off consecutive games totaling seven goals or more over the last three seasons, with that situation producing an average total of just 5.3 goals. The 'under' is also 11-2 with the Blues revenging a one-goal loss against an opponent this season, with an average total of just 5.4 goals in that spot. With both of these teams having all but locked up their divisional seeding (the Wild have an outside chance of surpassing the second-place Avs but it's highly unlikely), I'm anticipating a relatively 'low-event' affair on Wednesday. Take the under (8*).

Sean's 85-48 (+$2,967) NHL run continues with TWO 10* big ticket totals on Wednesday with the first getting underway EARLY at 5 pm et! Your best bet is a weekly or monthly subscription package, giving you access to ALL of Murph's winners every day!

NHL | Golden Knights vs Sharks
Play on: Sharks +1½ -136 at Draft Kings

While it's true they still have a shot at the division, the Knights may be a little deflated after coming up short against Colorado, a game they were quite depleted for. Though the Sharks are primarily focued on evaluating talent, they figure to want this one. Not only is it their final game of the season but Vegas has beaten them in all seven meetings. Note that four of those seven losses came by a single goal. The Sharks have seen four of their last five decided by just one goal. Vegas, meawhile, has seen five of six decided by a single goal. In what could well be another close one, consider SJ on the puck-line.
