Blues vs. Predators Game 3 Pick

NHL Predictions: Can the Predators beat the Blues in Game 3? 4/30/17

Who will come away with a win in Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals when the Nashville Predators host the St. Louis Blues at 3PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Predators are favored at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -145 to win. St. Louis is listed with +125 odds to prevail. The over/under total for the game is listed at 5 goals.

St. Louis evened up the series on Friday night with a 3-2 win at home. These two teams have now split six meetings for the season. The Predators return home with a 46-30-12 overall record and 26-9-8 mark at home. St. Louis is 51-31-7 overall and 25-17-2 on the road.

The Predators hurt themselves with penalties in Game 2, racking up a total of 23 in St. Louis. That led to a Vladmir Tarashenko goal late in the first period. He would also go on to be the one to break up a 2-2 tie in the third period with a goal with four minutes to play. The Blues only had 20 shots on goal in the win, while the Predators finish with 24 shots on goal. Nashville also had a 33-24 edge in hits.

Bet on Predators vs. Blues

The Predators lost Game 2, but should still feel like they were the better team. The penalty minutes really hurt them in the long run, but they will be able to cut down on those at home while maintaining an aggression that the Blues won’t be quite ready for. I think Nashville walks away with this one today.
