Blues face uphill battle to knock off Preds in Nashville

The Nashville Predators aim to win their third game in a row at home tonight vs the St. Louis Blues. The Preds have won six of their last eight games at Bridgestone Arena and sit two points back of Vegas for the top spot in the Western Conference. Nashville opened as a -150 favorite to get the W.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Predators’ last 10 games at home.
  • The Blues are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games as an underdog.
  • Nashville is 4-13 ATS in its last 17 games at home.

The Blues have started to come back to life and are 4-1 SU in their last five road games. St. Louis sits four points back of the Predators for the division lead but hasn’t had much success recently in Smashville. The Blues have lost six straight in Nashville (including playoffs) and were outscored 22-7 in those games.

The Predators have been a solid bet at home this season at 18-8 SU and one of the main reasons for their ascension to the top of the Central Division is how they’ve performed at home. Nashville is 13-2 SU in its last 15 games at home vs the division and is holding visiting teams to 2.62 goals per game.

The total opened at 5.5 and trends are pointing heavily toward an UNDER. Both of these teams rank in the top five in fewest goals allowed per game and the UNDER has hit in the last six games in this matchup.
