NHL Betting Trends


The Stars are 5-0 in their last five road games against a team with a winning home record. The road team is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.


The favorite is 35-17 in the last 52 meetings. The Predators are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.


Nashville was awful in the first period Wednesday night, but back at home should see a big bounceback effort from everyone especially Rinne. The Predators have high hopes for this postseason and they are the favorites in this contest for a reason. Take Nashville to shrug off the last performance and bounce back with a win.
