Money Line Pick
Nashville makes a visit to rival St. Louis as the Predators will look to add another loss to the struggling Blues. St. Louis has lost eight of its last 10 games and is currently on a three-game losing streak. The Predators are coming off a strong 5-0 shutout of the New York Islanders. Colton Parayko has been a bright spot for the Blues even in their struggles with four goals over the last 10 games. Nashville hasn’t fought to be consistent this season, but they have had plenty of struggles all season. The Predators have won 10 of the last 15 head-to-head meetings. The Blues have had too many struggles recently to back them with confidence against a team they have lost to six times in their last 10 head-to-heads. A play on the Predators’ money line is the right move.
Over Under Pick
Both the Predators and Blues are averaging around two goals per game in their last three head-to-head meetings. Which doesn’t help the chances at an over total. Lucky for them the total for this match-up is 5.5. Each of those last three head-to-head meetings also had 5.5 totals. Only once in that span did the teams combine for a six-goal total, as Nashville got a 4-2 victory earlier this season at Enterprise Center. Therefore a play on the over with some confidence is the right idea.
