Why Bet on the Minnesota Wild?
The Wild are currently sitting at -6.3 goals below expected after four games. Many errors and breakdowns provided those harsh results. Just looking at Game 4 stats, they took 35 shots and failed to score. They’ve given up 12 goals in those four games. The defense is struggling a lot and they need to act now and fast if they still want a lifeline left.
Their top players to keep an eye out for would be Joel Eriksson Ek, who currently has two goals in the postseason. Their goaltender Cam Talbot will have to put on quite the performance tonight if they want to stand a chance against Vegas. The pressure is on and Minnesota has to bring their A-game.
Why Bet on the Vegas Golden Knights?
After shaking off their first loss in Game 1, the Golden Knights made it their task to take down Minnesota quick and with ease. They’ve been averaging three goals per game. Defensively, they are giving up one goal per game and that’s thanks to the work of the defensive line, which is solid to say the least.
Now that we mention the defense, it goes to say that Marc-Andre Fleury is the top player for the Knights. In his last performance, he was able to get anothe shutout, making it his 16th in the playoffs. He’s also the fifth goaltender in history to play at least 150 playoff games and has allowed two goals or less in 14 straight games. His performance will define the outcome for Vegas.

Wild vs. Golden Knights Expert Betting Predictions
Honestly, the way Vegas has performed after being defeated in Game 1 is one for the books. Impressive is little to say with the amazing work they’ve created. They are still a young franchise, but they play like they’ve been here forever and on top. The only way this series can go on is that Minnesota can stop Vegas in their tracks and figure out their game plan. It’s going to be hard, but anything is possible during the playoffs.
