WIN -105 O:U 6.5
The Nashville Predators go to Winnipeg to take on the Winnipeg Jets at the Bell MTS Place on Sunday. The Nashville Predators are coming off of a win over the Chicago Blackhawks, snapping a two-game losing streak, losing to the Anaheim Ducks and the Boston Bruins. The Predators have only won two games out of their last five games.
The Predators are 20-16-7 on the season and are fifth in the Central Division, with 47 points.
Nashville is sixth in scoring this season, which could be seen as odd as their highest-scoring player is Defender Roman Josi, but Josi has 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 seventh in the NHL in goals.
The Winnipeg Jets are coming off of a loss to the Boston Bruins, giving up three goals alone to David Pastrnak. The Jets were on a two-game winning streak before the loss to the Boston Bruins.
The Winnipeg Jets are 24-17-4 on the season and are fourth in the Central Division, a spot above the Nashville Predators. The Winnipeg Jets are a balanced team between their offense and defense, ranking as the 16th best offense, and the 14th best defense.
Nashville is 18-25 ATS this season
Over is 28-14-1 for the Predators this season
Winnipeg is 25-20 ATS this season
Over is 19-23-1 for the Jets this season
The Nashville Predators have a better offense, but the Winnipeg Jets has the better defense. However, where the Winnipeg Jets seems to have the advantage over the Nashville Predators is that they will be playing at home and that they are more disciplined, and they make their chances count as they are 11th in power-play percentage and third in penalty minutes. I think the Winnipeg Jets are just a slightly better team, and I favored them in this matchup. Final Score Prediction, Winnipeg Jets win 4-3.
