Bet on Predators vs. Canucks

Vancouver didn't look good at all in the loss at the Jets. Although it can take solace in the fact it is playing on home ice tonight, this is a hard team to trust right now. Nashville is playing solid hockey and will want to set the record straight after letting one slip through the cracks against the Golden Knights, although it did still record a point. Take the visitors to secure the win tonight.
