Minnesota Wild vs. Edmonton Oilers

My Pick – Evan Bouchard to Account for Over 0.5 Points (-150) at DraftKings

The Edmonton Oilers are set to host the Minnesota Wild in a Western Conference battle tonight. This is a game that could be high-scoring due to the potential third period takeover that the Wild have shown this season.

Edmonton is taking on a Minnesota team that is ranked 24th in the league in goals allowed per game (3.34). Earlier this week, the Wild allowed seven goals in a 10-7 home win over the Vancouver Canucks. One day later, the Wild allowed six goals in a 6-3 road loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Oilers are fifth in the league in goals per game (3.58), thanks to their incredibly loaded roster. One player who continues to play at a high level is defender Evan Bouchard, who has been one of the most efficient players for Edmonton after the NHL All-Star Break. In the eight games after the break, Bouchard has accounted for 10 points, with seven of them being assists.

Bouchard has accounted for a goal or an assist in four of the last five games for Edmonton. Bouchard has accounted for six points (three goals and three assists each) in the two previous games against the Wild this season. He has a chance to account for another huge matchup for Edmonton again due to his productivity on offense and the Wilds’ poor defense.
