Canucks vs. Predators Prediction
The Bruins picked a horrible time to go into a funk but can they right themselves tonight when they host the Panthers at 7:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Predators are massive favorites to beat the Canucks tonight. Nashville is -310 on the money line compared to Vancouver’s odds of +255, while the over/under currently sits at 5 goals.
It would be easy to just lay the -310 on Nashville but the risk is too much from a betting standpoint. Keep poking the bear too much and at some point it’ll rip your hand off, so let’s look at the total to see if we can find more value.
The over is 7-1-3 in the Predators’ last 11 games overall and 4-1-2 in their last seven games coming off a win. The over is also a perfect 5-0 in their last five games playing on two days of rest and is 5-1-1 in their last seven games after scoring five goals or more in their previous game.
On the other side, the under is 4-0 in the Canucks’ last four games overall but the over is 7-3-4 in their last 14 games when they’re playing on one day of rest. Plus, in Vancouver’s last 15 games versus a team with a winning record, the over is 7-3-5.
