Sharks vs. Predators Pick

NHL Predictions: Low-scoring game in cards for Sharks at Predators? 2/22/18

Will defense and goaltending be the theme tonight when the San Jose Sharks travel to play the Nashville Predators at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Predators are listed as a -155 favorite on the moneyline. The Sharks are a +135 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. Both the line and the total have remained where they were when they opened.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

As of Thursday afternoon, 55 percent of bets are being placed on the Predators. Online wager info also states that 66 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

In the first meeting this season back on Nov. 1, San Jose rolled to a 4-1 victory on its home ice. Over the last 10 meetings, each team has won five times while the over has gone 4-3-3.

The Sharks come in red-hot having won three in a row and five of their last six games. San Jose is 7-3 in its last 10 contests, while the under has gone 6-3-1. Nashville has won two in a row and is 6-4 over its last 10 contests. The over is 6-4. 

Nashville is third in the NHL in goals-against average, while San Jose is ninth. The Predators have a slightly better offense, but neither team is incapable of an offensive dud. I like the goalies here and the defenses are very solid. Take the under and hopefully prosper.
