Ricky’s Free play on the Minnesota Wild -145:
Key Angle: It’s important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn’t share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. In tonight’s game there’s no doubt that the recent slump of St. Louis is particularly significant. The Blues have lost six straight and during that span they were shutout twice, scoring just six goals total in those six losses. They rank 22nd in the league in scoring, yet rank 4th in goals against. Trading away their second line center at the deadline doesn’t make them any better in the short term.
– The Wild are 4-0 in their last 4 overall.
– The Wild are 16-6 in their last 22 home games.
– The Under is 4-1 in Wild last 5 home games.
Verdict: Take Minny -145
