Minnesota Wild (5.5) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (-165) Preview & Prediction (12/07/2019)

The Minnesota Wild will be on the road Saturday taking the ice against the Hurricanes at PNC Arena in Raleigh. The Wild will be looking to continue their winning streak following a 5-4 win against the Lightning in Tampa Bay on Thursday. The Hurricanes will be looking for back-to-back wins after beating the San Jose Sharks 3-2 in a shootout at home their last time on the ice.

The Minnesota Wild are now 14-11-4 on the season following a 5-4 win in Tampa Bay against the Lightning. The Wild were outshot 21-34 in the game while winning just 17 of 41 faceoffs. Minnesota was unable to score a goal on either of their two power-play opportunities while defending the net three of the four times they were forced to skate with a man in the box. They had 22 blocked shots and nine takeaways in the game.

The Wild have been good for an average of 3.00 goals per game this season while giving up 3.17 to their opponents. They have been able to fire 29.0 shots per game while allowing 31.7 on the defensive end of the ice. Minnesota has scored 19 power-play goals for a 20.0 conversion rate to go with an 80.2 penalty kill percentage.

The Carolina Hurricanes are now 17-11-1 on the year following a 3-2 win at home against the San Jose Sharks. Carolina was outshot 29-30 in the game while winning just 20 of 60 faceoffs. The Hurricanes were unable to score a goal on any of their three power-play opportunities while defending the net both of the times they were forced to skate shorthanded. They had 16 blocked shots and seven takeaways in the game.

Carolina has been able to find the back of the net for an average of 3.07 goals per game for the season while giving up 2.76 to their opponents. They have been able to fire an average of 33.1 shots per game while allowing 28.8 on the defensive end of the ice. They have 18 power-play goals this season for a 20.0 conversion rate to go with an 85.0 penalty kill percentage.

Carolina will take the ice as -158 favorites with the Wild skating in as 138 underdogs. The total is sitting at six on the game. I’m liking the payback on the Wild as an underdog in this one. No, their numbers aren’t as good looking at the stat sheet. That being said, Minnesota has been hot lately. They have been skating very aggressive with the puck, maybe more aggressively than anyone else in the NHL the last 10 days. My money’s on the Wild.

  • Minnesota is 5-0 in their previous five games.
  • Minnesota is 4-0 in their previous four games following a win.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (NHL & MLB)
C.O.W. = (Chances of Winning) – The ‘C.O.W.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record using their short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF WINNING’ percentage for their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.

C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.

DMVI = (Daily Market Value Index) – The DMVI is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the DMVI, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams. The DMVI is a tool to find value vs. the current line.

VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 7-game cycle.

  • BULLISH = Team is either (7-0, 6-1, or 5-2) in their last 7 games.
  • NEUTRAL = Team is either (3-4 or 4-3) in their last 7 games.
  • BEARISH = Team is either (0-7, 1-6 or 2-5) in their last 7 games.

L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
