The Detroit Red Wings are coming off one of their better weeks of the season, which includes a blowout win over the Lightning, and they're showing signs of providing value in the underdog role.

The Predators have also won four of the six meetings against the Red Wings, which includes outscoring them 9-1 in the last two meetings. Give me the Preds on the road.
