Will Bruins continue hot streak vs Predators?

The Boston Bruins will look to stay hot in December when they travel to Nashville to face the Predators. The Bruins are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games and are revving up their climb back into the Eastern Conference playoff race. Boston opened as a +130 road dog at Bridgestone Arena.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Bruins’ last five games against the Predators.
  • Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne ranks 11th in save percentage and GAA this season.
  • The favored team is 10-2 SU in the last 12 games in this matchup.

Nashville has been on a tear since the beginning of November, going 11-4 SU and only losing one game at home. The Predators edged the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday 3-2 in a shootout and it was the typical game plan for a Nashville win. Timely goal-scoring on the power play and steady goaltending are the ingredients for a winning formula in the NHL and the Predators may have the recipe down pat. Nashville has scored a power-play goal in all 13 home games this season, converting 39.6 percent of its chances at Bridgestone Arena. Consider the Predators moneyline in this one.

Boston is playing arguably its best hockey of the season after a dominating 3-0 win over the Flyers. But the Bruins will have to rely on backup goaltender Anton Khudobin to hold down the fort in tonight’s matchup. Starting netminder Tuukka Rask will be out for this contest and while normally that would give bettors pause, Khudobin has certainly held his own. The backup is 7-0-2 in his nine starts this season and has won four straight. If bettors think Nashville is due for a letdown at home, the Bruins may be the team to pull off the upset.
