Bet NHL Action For Thursday, April 5, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Washington opened as a -140 favorite before the line tightened considerably, while the total has remained at 5.5. The Capitals can be bet between -110 and -115 at various books, while Nashville ranges from +100 to -105.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 57 percent of public bets are siding with the visiting Predators. Online wager info also shows that 59 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Nashville defenseman Yannick Weber (upper body) and center Calle Jarnkrok (upper body) are both out indefinitely. For Washington, left winger Alex Ovechkin (lower body) and right winger TJ Oshie (lower body) are both questionable. Right winger Jay Beagle (upper body) is out tonight.

BETTING STRATEGY

Nashville won the first meeting this season on its home ice by a count of 6-3 and has won the last three games overall in the series. With Ovechkin potentially out and at least not at 100 percent, that would be a major blow for the Capitals. I really like the Predators as a team that could do some damage in the postseason and this is a great opportunity to win against a quality opponent on the road.
