Wild/Blues Betting Prediction
This game is going to be a close one, but I believe that the Wild will find a crucial Game 4 win in St Louis on Sunday. The Wild’s power play has been hot, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has been a brick wall in the net.
The Wild’s offense has also been explosive the last two games scoring 11 goals, while their defense has also been solid, only allowing three. Husso has also been struggling and does not have much confidence in the net for the Blues. The Blues also have several key players missing due to injury, including defenseman Nick Leddy.
The Wild moneyline at -110 is the pick of the night.
