Friday NHL Playoffs Free Pick
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Ducks –140 money line favorites over the Predators, who are +129 on the ML. The over/under total for this game is currently 5 goals.
This has arguably been the wildest first round matchup of this year’s playoffs. In Game 4 on Wednesday night, the Ducks scored three goals in the third period to win 6-3 and even up the best-of-seven series at two games apiece.
Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne is coming off a rough outing, allowing six goals on Wednesday. It wasn’t entirely his fault, however, as defensive breakdowns lead to a couple of good looks by Ducks’ shooters. Corey Perry paced Anaheim with two assists and the shorthanded game winning early in the third period.
NHL Free Pick: The over is 5-0-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams, including 2-0-2 in the last four games between the Predators and Ducks when the game is played in Anaheim. According to latest NHL trends, the over is also 5-0-1 in the Predators last six conference quarterfinals games and 10-2-5 in their last 17 outings versus the Pacific. The over is 3-0-1 in the Ducks’ last four games overall and 3-0-1 in their last four games versus the Central. Take the over in what could be another high-scoring affair.
