Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Ducks –139 money line favorites over the Predators, who are +128 on the ML. The over/under total for this game is currently 5 goals.

Nashville heads into this contest with a 45-27-7-4 overall record and is 21-18-2-1 on the road this year. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 43-27 in all Nashville games this season and 23-12 when the Predators have played on the road.

The Ducks enter Friday night’s game with a 47-31-3-2 overall record and are 26-14-1-1 inside the Honda Center this season. The under is 41-39 in all Anaheim games this year and 20-19 when the Ducks have played at home.

NHL Free Pick: The Predators started 1-0 in the playoffs last year but went on to lose to the eventual Stanley Cup-champion Blackhawks. The Ducks’ offense should get back on track tonight after rare outing on Wednesday in which they struggled against a very good Nashville defense. I expect Corey Perry (who racked up 50 goals in the regular season but who was held in check in Game 1 of the series) to have a better outing and for the Ducks to come out firing on all cylinders. The favorite is 16-6 in the last 22 meetings between these two teams and the home squad is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings. Take Anaheim and lay the points on the money line.
