Predators vs. Flames Pick
The Nashville Predators and Calgary Flames meet up tonight at 9:30PM ET. Will the two have a low-scoring affair like they had earlier this season?
Calgary is 21-23-3 overall, 14-9 at home and 24-21 with the over. Nashville is 23-18-8 overall, 10-11-5 on the road and 21-17 with the under. Calgary has won four straight over Nashville, including a 2-1 OT win back on Dec. 15. These two have hit the over in eight of their last 10 meetings.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Nashville is favored in tonight’s game, as the Predators are getting odds of -110 to win, while the Flames have been given a money line of +100 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals.
Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne has allowed fewer than two goals in three straight games. Nashville has not gone over in their last five games and have gone over just twice in their last 10 games. These teams faced each other just once this season, on Dec. 15, and Calgary edged the Predators, 2-1 in overtime. Expect a similar low-scoring game this time around.
