Nashville Predators vs Ottawa Senators prediction

The Nashville Predators are worth a look in this spot because they’ve won 4 of the last 5 games against the Senators, and they’re the better team on paper. However, we’re not getting much of a difference in the price, and I’m not excited to back a struggling team on the road. The Ottawa Senators have seen 12 of their 18 wins this season come at home, and they’ve played the better hockey over the last week or so. Give me the Senators and the cheap price.
