Nashville Predators vs. Tampa Bay Lightning - 12/3/19 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Tampa Bay Lightning at Nashville Predators
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 8:00 PM (Bridgestone Arena )
NAS -110 O/U 6.5
The Tampa Bay Lightning go to Nashville, Tennessee to take on the Nashville Predators at the Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday. The Tampa Bay Lightning are on a three-game losing streak, last losing to the Carolina Hurricanes. Each game in the three-game losing streak for Tampa Bay has been by one goal each. It's been a tough break for Tampa Bay at the moment.
Tampa Bay isn’t having the season that they expected, after a playoff berth in last season. Tampa Bay's record at the moment is 12-9-3, and their captain and superstar Steven Stamkos is out with an injury still and anytime that Stamkos is out the Tampa Bay fans should probably be sweating.
The Nashville Predators are coming off of a 3-2 nothing lost to the Florida Panthers. The Predators have lost two of their last five games, and three of their last five games have come down to a result of one goal.
The Predators are sitting on a record of 12-10-4 and sitting at fifth place in the Central Division. The Predators leading point getter is Defender Roman Josi. Josi has had a terrific season, but it may be a bit concerning for the Predators to have a Defender as their highest points scorer, but you'll take the points where you can get them.
Tampa Bay is 10-14 ATS this season.
Lightning is 2-6 in their last 8 vs. Western Conference.
Nashville is 10-16 ATS this season.
Predators are 3-8 in their last 11 overall.
This game is a conflicting game. Tampa Bay is the better team but with Steven Stamkos out, anything is possible. That's why I would take Nashville in this game, they aren't as talented but without a leader like Stamkos for Tampa Bay, their struggles may continue and lead to a four-game losing streak. Final score prediction, Nashville Predators win 4 to 3.
