The Detroit Red Wings are still having issues stringing wins together, and they’ve been fade material on the road dating back to last season. The Minnesota Wild continue to be one of the more trustworthy teams in the league, and they’re absolutely dominant in the favorite role. I can only side with the Wild here, and I’ll lay the PL for max betting value.
