Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Canucks –185 on the money line over the visiting Predators, who are +170 on the ML. The over/under for tonight’s game (which starts at 9:00PM ET) is currently sitting at 5 goals.

The Predators took care of the Ducks in six games in the first round. They won in Anaheim as a +118 money line underdog in Game 1, beat the Ducks 4-3 at home in Game 3 as a –142 favorite, and won Games 5 (+130) and Games 6 (-141).

Nashville will take on a Vancouver team that was pushed to the brink by the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks. The Canucks took a 3-0 series lead before plowing it and allowing the Hawks to tie things up at 3-all. But Vancouver took care of business in overtime in Game 7, finishing off Chicago, 2-1.

NHL Playoff Free Pick: Now might be the time to take advantage of a tired Vancouver team that was pushed to the brink by Chicago. According to latest NHL trends, the Predators are 4-1 in their last five games versus the Northwest and 13-5 in their last 18 games overall. They’re also 27-11 in their last Thursday night games, while the Canucks are just 1-4 in their last five conference semifinals games. The Canucks might just be happy to have gotten out of the first round and the Predators can steal one on the road.
