The Nashville Predators could use a bounce back victory after losing five of their last six games. The Predators are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 28.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Craig Smith leads Nashville with five goals, Viktor Arvidsson has two assists and Mike Fisher has 16 shots on goal.

The Senators are 2-5 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 6-1 in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Predators are 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Senators are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1-2 in the last 7 meetings in Nashville.
I'm not laying this type of juice with a Predators team that's piling up the losses early and has lost five of their last six games. The Seantors have been consistent and have yet to lose two straight games this season. I'll take the Senators in this spot with the plus money based on the value.
