The Chicago Blackhawks and the Nashville Predators meet in NHL action from the Bridgestone Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Nashville is listed as a -275 home favorite while Chicago is a +200 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.
For Chicago, Petr Mrazek is questionable for this game while Anders Bjork, Austin Wagner, Colin Blackwell and Andreas Englund all remain out of the lineup.
Nashville’s 3-1 win back on March 4th, 2023, made it five straight wins for the Predators in this head-to-head matchup.
Chicago is 1-5 in their last 6 games played on 1 days rest and 13-51 in their last 64 games played against a team with a winning record while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following a win. Nashville is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall and 7-17 in their last 24 division games while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.
I’m going to take a shot with Chicago +1.5 here. The Blackhawks aren’t going anywhere this postseason, but they’re playing some close games as of late and head-to-head these games between these two have been close more often than not in recent years. I think this game could end up being another one-goal game, so give me the Blackhawks +1.5 here.
