Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 8:00 PM (Bridgestone Arena)
NAS -210 O:U 6
The Anaheim Ducks go to Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday at the Bridgestone Arena to take on the Nashville Predators. The Anaheim Ducks are coming off of a four-game losing streak, losing to the St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks, Dallas Stars, and the Columbus Blue Jackets in their losing streak.
Anaheim is the second-fewest in the NHL in goals scored, while only having a middle of the pack defense that is having to do far too much to keep the team in games. The Ducks are 17-24-5 on the season and are now fallen to the last place in the Pacific Division.
The Nashville Predators are coming off of a loss to the Edmonton Oilers, snapping a two-game winning streak for the Predators.
The Predators are 21-17-7 on the season and are fifth in the Central Division, with 49 points.
Nashville is eleventh in scoring this season, as Defender Roman Josi leads the team with 46 points with 14 points and 32 assists. Josi was announced as a selection for the NHL All-Star Game this week, Josi was the only Nashville player selected so far. The Predators are still able to get a lot of goals, ranking eleventh in the NHL in goals.
Anaheim is 21-25 ATS this season
Ducks are 16-35 in their last 51 road games.
Nashville is 18-27 ATS this season
Predators are 4-10 in their last 14 home games.
The Anaheim Ducks have been dreadful lately, only winning two of their last ten games. The Nashville Predators haven't been exactly phenomenal recently. Still, they are better right now than the Anaheim Ducks, who have fallen from an average team to one of the worst teams in all of hockey. That's why I like the Nashville Predators to win this one. However, one of the two wins for the Ducks in their last ten games, was against the Nashville Predators in a very close game. The Ducks have proven that they can beat Nashville, I just don't think they do it twice. Final Score Prediction, Nashville Predators win 4-1.
