On the flip side, the Predators have a home record of 10-9-4 thus far. Both of these teams will need to gameplan hard for tonights' matchup as these teams are so even in many ways. The Sabres, however, enter this game on a winning streak will the Predators are on a losing streak.

Buffalo Sabres Keep Winning

The Buffalo Sabres enter this game ranked 22nd in goals scored per game when away from home. The Sabres will need Victor Olofsson to have a big day. He is one of the leading point scorers on this team and will need to come up big in support of Jack Eichel for Buffalo to get the win tonight.

The Sabres rank 19th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on the road. The Sabres will look towards Linus Ullmark to come up with some big saves here tonight. Ullmark has been up and down this season so it will be anyone's guess how he will play today.

Nashville Predators Look To Stop Losing

The Nashville Predators enter this game ranked 28th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when at home. The Predators will need a big game from Pekka Rine who has been bad all season long. Rine needs to start tightening up his angles and trapping shooters with his glove.

The Predators are ranked 17th in the NHL in goals scored per game when on home ice. Nashville needs Roman Josi to continue his production this season. Josi has been a beast from the blue line and has opened up this offense is new ways with his crips passes and one-timers from the point.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This is an easy pick tonight, take this team and take the points. Getting a team this good at +1.5 is a gift we have to take. The Buffalo Sabres are the better team in this game and have the weapons to win it outright. So why not take the goal advantage here? The Sabres have Jack Eichel and Victor Olofsson, a dynamic duo who will be on display here in this matchup. Nashville has been struggling as of late, losing two of their last games in a row. Go with the hot hand here, as this game is going to be tight. Take the goal advantage here, as this Sabres squad will probably win outright but at this moment we will play it safe and take the +1.5.

Prediction: Buffalo Sabres +1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Go with the under in this game. These two teams lack some high-quality goal scorers with the exception of Jack Eichel. The Nashville Predators have been struggling to find their touch when it comes to scoring so they will most likely not find it here tonight. On the other hand, the Buffalo Sabres find themselves in the same boat. The Sabres have been inconsistent when it comes to scoring on the road, another helpful trend for the under. Both of these goalies still have some high-quality games left in them, expect them to come here tonight.

Prediction: Under 6
