The Predators are 0-5 in their last 5 road games and 11-4 in their last 15 games playing on 2 days rest. The Devils are 10-3 in their last 13 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 in their last 6 home games. The home team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Devils have actually been pretty solid when coming off a couple of days of rest. Add in the fact this is Nashville's first road game, I like the value of the plus money and the home team here.
