NAS -123 O/U 6.5
The Nashville Predators (21 - 16 - 7) draw a tough road game to start their week as they take on the Edmonton Oilers (24 - 18 - 5). Edmonton will be hosting this game at the Rogers Place Arena in Edmonton, AB. Nashville rolls into town having won back-to-back games against Winnipeg and Chicago. Edmonton comes into this game fresh off of a loss against Calgary. Edmonton is in the thick of things in the Pacific Division, so they'll be coming hard for a win here.
The Nashville Predators take the ice with a dynamic scoring team. Nashville is averaging 3.39 GF/G with Roman Josi (14 goals, 32 assists) leading the charge. With that being said, our player to pay attention to in this game will be Filip Forsberg (15 goals, 4 PPG). Forsberg has a touch matchup with Connor McDavid which could make this game very exciting to watch.
Edmonton takes to the ice just a loss removed from winning three games in a row. Edmonton is averaging 3.02 GF/G while surrendering 3.13 GA/G. Connor McDavid (26 goals, 48 assists) is one of the best in the game for a reason, so we like him to go off against Nashville. The Edmonton Oilers will look to Mike Smith (10 - 9 - 3, 3.01 GAA, 90% SV) to shut down Nashville's potentially electrifying offense.
- Nashville are 14-1 SU in their last 15 games against Edmonton.
- The total has gone OVER in 9 of Nashville's last 11 games on the road.
- Edmonton are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Edmonton's last 9 games against Nashville.
The Predators offense has been able to do decent on the year and while the Oilers should be doing great, the offense for the Oilers is playing very flat and has not been able to get going in most of the games played in this year. Look for that to continue in the game here as the Oilers are unable to really get going in the game here. Final Score Prediction, Nashville Predators win 5-2.
