I took yesterday off after a successful Saturday night. The Sabres won the early game on Saturday and at odds of 4.35 to beat the Sharks that win guaranteed me a profit for the day. The Blackhawks and Red Wings lost their games for me that night, but the Devils beat the Senators in overtime, which allowed me to finish 2-2 on the evening. It’s always tough for me to bet against the Senators as a big fan, but you will notice that I try to keep my allegiances separate from my predictions when placing bets. This is crucial if you hope to be a winning sports bettor.

Minnesota Wild @ New York Rangers
The Wild have been very impressive to start the season. Darcy Keumper has been on fire in goal for the Wild and already has 3 shutouts in his 5 games played this season. His GAA is 0.81 and his save percentage is .966, both of which lead the league. This Wild team is going to go far this season and has become an elite team in my estimation. The Wild are coming off a 7-2 demolition of the Tampa Bay Lightning and I expect them to build on this momentum in Manhattan tonight.
The Rangers have been very average so far this year. They were on a good 3 game winning streak, before being stopped in Montreal on Saturday night. Heading back to MSG where they are 2-2 so far this year they will have to find a way to beat an elite team. I see the Wild shutting down the Rangers offense and then finding a way to get 3 or more goals on Henrik Lundqvist this evening. I think it will be a fairly easy win for the Wild, who I’m shocked are underdogs in this game.
