Blackhawks Can Make History Tuesday

Blackhawks Predators Kane Josi NHL

The Chicago Blackhawks are the hottest team in the NHL and can set a new franchise record with their 12th consecutive victory when they visit Nashville Predators Tuesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 0-8 in the last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Predators are 1-7 in their last eight games vs the Western Conference.
  • The Blackhawks are 8-0 in their last eight games with one days off between games.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Hawks as -120 road faves with the Preds at EVEN odds. In puckline markets, the Hawks are -1.5 (+250) while the Predators sit +1.5 (-300). For the total, OVER 5 goals is -125 while the UNDER is priced at +105.

The incredible run has vaulted the Hawks into the top of the Central Division and Western Conference standings, heading into Tuesday’s contest with 66 points—three ahead of the suddenly-fizzling Dallas Stars.

The Hawks have scored 43 goals during their 11-game winning streak (3.9 goals per game), while opponents have lit the lamp just 21 times in those games (1.9 gpg)—five of those goals coming from the Arizona Coyotes in the Hawks’ 7-5 win in the game that started the streak back on December 29.

Despite a 3-0 win over the Minnesota Wild in their last contest, January has been a rough month for the Preds, who have gone just 2-5 since flipping the calendar. Ryan Johansen has performed admirably since coming over in the trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets earlier in the month, registering two goals and five assists in his five games as a Pred.

The Hawks have already beaten the Predators twice this season, including a 3-2 win on home ice for their eighth win of the streak. The Preds did, however, hand Chicago one of its biggest losses of the season in a 5-1 thumping in Nashville back on December 10.

Still, you would be hard pressed to find a club playing better hockey at this point. Normally, you don’t find a ton of betting value with the Hawks, but at online shop Bovada, the Hawks can be had as -120 road faves, giving rare betting value to the hottest team on the ice.
