Minnesota Wild Money-line against the Dallas Stars
Reasoning: The Minnesota Wild have been playing well winning their last 3 of 4 before losing a heavily favored matchup against the Sharks. I always like teams to bounce back and win the next game after a loss where they were the favorites. It is very common and it happened yesterday when the Capitals beat the Kings after losing the previous game being the favorites. Also, the Wild have won the last 3 meetings. I believe that we see a similar story against a Stars team that has not looked themselves this season. I see Minnesota with a comfortable win and many goals scored by the Wild.
St. Louis Blues Money-line against the San Jose Sharks
Reasoning: The St. Louis Blues have lost their last 4. However, all those losses were by 1 goal only. They are playing a Sharks team that they have gotten the better of. They have won 4 of the last 5 meetings against them. The Blues will turn around their bad form tonight against a pretender Sharks team. I expect history to repeat and the Blues to add on another win to their current 3-game win streak.
Denver Nuggets -7.5 Spread against the Philadelphia 76ers
Reasoning: The Denver Nuggets won 4 in a row before losing to the Dallas Mavericks in their previous game. They weren’t favored in that game, however, the 76ers have lost their last 5 and are without Embiid for tonight as well. I do not see how the 76ers keep this close without their biggest star. Also, the Nuggets won both of their meetings against the Philly last year. Expect a dominant Nuggets win with Jokic playing on his home turf.
