Nashville Predators vs. Dallas Stars - 12/14/19 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Dallas Stars at Nashville Predators
Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 6:30 PM (ridgestone Arena)
The Dallas Stars will take on the Nashville Predators in Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday at the Bridgestone Arena. The Dallas Stars are on a three-game winning streak, last defeating The New Jersey Devils. The Dallas Stars will get a decent amount of rest before the Nashville game, as it will be four days from the game against the Devils to the game against Nashville.
The Dallas Stars have played decently this season, resulting in an 18-11-3 record on the season and fifth in the Central Division. The stars have been terrific on defense, only allowing 2.31 goals per game, but have not been great on offense. They do have superstar Tyler Seguin on the roster, but they need to get more out of him and the rest of the team.
The Nashville Predators go to Buffalo, New York, to take on the Buffalo Sabres at the KeyBank Center on Thursday. The Nashville Predators are coming off of a two-game winning streak, scoring nine goals in the two games, while only giving up five. The winning streak has come off of a two-game losing streak that they were on fire.
That's a bit of the story of the Nashville Predators this season, and not all that consistent and being more of a middle-of-the-road NHL team. They are third-lowest in Central Division, but that's also mainly due to how well the Central Division has done this season. Defender Roman Josie has been their most significant contributor giving 26 points to the Nashville Predator team.
Nashville is 13-16 ATS this season
Under is 4-1 in Predators last five overall.
This game will be close, due to Buffalo being at home they might have a slight edge in this one. However, Buffalo is a bit up-and-down, and I think that with the rest that Dallas gets, they will be fresher and the more rejuvenated team, and ultimately, they will win the game. Final score prediction, Dallas Stars win 4-2.
