Avalanche at Wild
Watch: 9 p.m. ET, ESPN+
Odds: Avalanche -195, Wild +163 || O/U 5.5
Pick: The Avalanche (13-0-2 since March 10) are riding a 15-game points streak. Colorado has won the previous three meetings between the teams. Sports Section likes that trend to continue. Take the Avs on the moneyline and the over.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Mets-Phillies and the final score. The Mets won 8-4.
We hope you took Sports Section’s advice (and parlayed it) to take the Mets on the moneyline and the over 9.
Subscriber Andrew Shrader (@Shradiohead) had New York and was closest to the score. Nice work, Andrew!
