Nashville is underperforming this regular season. For years now, the Predators have had a solid roster that should be able to make the playoffs without too much trouble, but in reality, they have none of that. Now the team has played the first half of the regular season without any real excitement, but now they're trying to rectify the situation, but it might be too late. They have had five wins and three losses in the last eight meetings. Nashville sits in ninth place in the Western Conference standings.
The situation is quite the opposite for Seattle. The club is in only its second season in the NHL but showed us in the first half of the regular season that it's ready to fight for a playoff spot. The Kraken was even among the league leaders at the time, but they lacked the experience and consistency to hold onto the position they'd previously earned. In the last seven games, they failed to win in regulation time and suffered five losses in overtime victories over San Jose and Dallas: 2:1 and 5:4, respectively. Seattle now sits seventh in the Western Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
At the end of the regular season, Nashville and Seattle are direct rivals in the fight for the last playoff spots. Now the opponents are in ninth and seventh place in the Western Conference standings, with six points separating them, but the Predators have one game left to play. All of that makes the upcoming confrontation as hard-fought and intriguing as possible. Still, the Kraken, who've played awesomely on the road and scored 13 of a possible 14 points in their seven previous road games, should have the best chance to succeed. As a result, we should bet on Seattle to win the game.
As a rule, two close games between the same opponents are different. The day before, Nashville and Seattle scored only two goals in regular time, so now we have the right to expect a much brighter and more productive encounter from them. Fortunately, in their four previous head-to-head meetings, they reached the bookmakers' total over each time, scoring a combined 26 goals (6.50 average per game). On this basis, the optimal option for the prediction seems to be a total over 5.5, and separately it is worth betting on the total over 0.5 points of Jordan Eberle.
