The Louisville Cardinals responded to the news that they weren’t eligible for the postseason by blowing out a bad Boston College team. Since then, the Cardinals have suffered losses at Duke and at Notre Dame. They’ll get another crack at Duke on Saturday afternoon and the recent revenge factor should help provide the Cardinals with some added motivation for that game. First, however, Louisville will take on Syracuse on 2/17. Sure, the Cards will want to snap their losing streak. They’re laying a fairly big number though and with the Blue Devils looming on deck, it could be easy to get caught looking ahead. With Syracuse off five straight wins, consider grabbing the points with the visitors on Wednesday.

Minnesota Wild vs. Vancouver Canucks Over-Under NHL Pick from Ben Burns: February 15th 2016

Any time that one plays a hockey total with an O/U line of five, there’s a reasonable chance of finishing with a “push.” If you’re OK with that, this one looks to have a greater chance of finishing with less than five goals than it does of finishing with more than five.

Both teams are struggling right now. Both are enduring disappointing seasons. More importantly, both teams have shown a tendency to play low-scoring games against other losing teams. The Wild have seen the “under” go 15-5-6 when facing a team with a losing record. Not to be outdone, the Canucks have seen the “under” go 16-5-6 against losing teams.

The Wild just don’t score very much. They’ve managed three goals or less in 24 of their past 25 games, scoring four in the other game. That 4-goal “outburst” came more than a month ago too, as they’ve scored three or less in 16 straight.

The Canucks can relate. They’ve totaled just 10 goals in their last six games combined, the “under” going 4-1-1.

The “under” is 6-1-2 the last nine times that the Wild played here in Vancouver. Eight of those games produced five or fewer goals, five of them finished with less than five. Consider the Under.
