With each new game day, the Predators' chances are decreasing, which can be considered a significant and unpleasant surprise. The Blue Yellows have a decent roster, but they fail once again. When the team needed to improve at the end of the regular season, they lost four of their last six games. The day before, they lost at home to Seattle 2:7, although the Crackers are their direct opponents for the top-8. Nashville dropped to tenth place in the Western Conference standings.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto is in a much more comfortable position. One day they will make the playoffs, and then, as is traditional, their knees will start to shake, as they have not been able to get past the first round of the Stanley Cup for almost two decades. You can go on and on about how the Maple Leafs have a solid roster now, but they've been like that all year. Meanwhile, in the regular season, the Blue and White are doing well, and in the last five meetings, they have three wins and two losses, allowing them to retain a fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Nashville continues to fight for the playoffs, but they are in a prolonged fight and do not believe in their chances of making the playoffs. Their opponents are simply better. The situation for the Yellow and Blue is made worse by the injury of Roman Yosi, without whom they lost to Seattle 2:7 the day before. The Maple Leafs are in better shape, having nearly made it to the Olympics and now looking to improve their place in the standings for a comfortable first-round playoff berth. The Canadians won the first face-to-face battle of the season - 2:1, so even now, we should bet on the victory of Toronto.
Toronto is a team with a good selection of offensive group performers; therefore, it would be foolish to play on defense. That's why the Maple Leafs are looking to play fun and productive. They've combined for 69 goals against (7.67 average per game) in their last nine meetings. Based on this, the best option for the prediction seems to be a total over 6.5, and separately we should look at the bet on the total over 0.5 points by Morgan Reilly.
