Will Predators continue to roll at home vs Flames?

The Nashville Predators aim to win their third game in a row when they host the Calgary Flames tonight. The Preds are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games at home and have won 11 of their last 15 games overall. But the Flames won’t be a pushover as Calgary is 7-3 SU in its last 10 road games.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Flames’ last three games vs the Predators.
  • The Predators are 22-5 SU in their last 27 games at home vs teams with winning records.
  • Nashville is 1-4 ATS in its last five games.

The Flames will be short-handed again tonight with goaltender Mike Smith out with a groin injury. Calgary missed Smith’s calming presence in the crease in Boston on Tuesday and got pumped 5-2 as a result. This is the final game of a six-game road trip for the Flames and tired legs may catch up to them when you consider this will be their sixth game in nine days. However, for what it’s worth, Calgary is 5-1 SU in its last six trips to Nashville.

Nashville is coming off a dramatic overtime win vs the Blues on Tuesday and sits one point back of Vegas for the top spot in the Western Conference. The Predators have one of the better defensive teams in the league in February and rank fifth in goals allowed per game this month (2.43). At 19-8 SU at home this season and with the Flames’ backup in net, it’s hard to envision Nashville dropping this one.

The total opened at 5.5 and an UNDER might be the profitable pick in this tilt. Nashville’s defensive exploits have been noted and the UNDER has hit in six of the last eight games in this matchup.
