Detroit Red Wings vs. Nashville Predators

NCAAB: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 8:00 PM EST

After winning three in a row the Red Wings have dropped their last three games. They are .500 (5-5) in their last 10 games and they have the 2nd fewest points in the Eastern Conference. While Detroit only gave up four goals in their recent three-game win streak they have given up 12 goals in losing three in a row. The club has not gotten it done on either side of the ice this season and they do not rank in the top 22 in the NHL in goals per game or goals against.

The Predators have lost two in a row and they have given up eight goals in their last two games. They gave up five in their last game in a touch OT home loss. Still, Nashville is near the top of the Western Conference standings and are right behind the Winnipeg Jets for the lead in the Central Division. The Preds have a legit offense, but are still led by their defense, which has not looked good in the last two games.

The Red Wings are big underdogs in this game, but they have won eight of their last nine games facing the Predators and have won their last four games against them in Nashville.

Bad start, bad finish

In their last game, the Red Wings were on the road losing to the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2 where they were outscored 2-0 in the first period and 3-1 in the 3rd period. They peppered the Chicago net with 45 shots in the game while giving up 36 and they still lost badly. Christoffer Ehn and Gustav Nyquist lit the lamp for the Red Wings in the game where they were 0/2 on the power play. Jonathan Bernier (6-13-2 3.37 GAA) took the loss giving up four goals on 35 shots and while he had a shutout win in his previous start Detroit has lost five of his last six starts. #1 G Jimmy Howard (15-15-5 2.78 GAA) may get the nod in this game and the Wings have lost his last two starts where he has given up seven goals.

Dylan Larkin leads Detroit in goals and points and he has scored three goals in his last five games. Nyquist leads them in assists and while he only has one assist in his last five games he has three goals in that span.

Not that much extra time

The Predators were at home in their last game losing to the St. Louis Blues 5-4 in overtime where they gave up the game-winning goal only 16 seconds into OT. They had 15 more shots in the game (44-29) and they could not take advantage of the extra man going 0/4 on the power play.

Viktor Arvidsson scored two goals for the Preds, Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi each had a goal, and Ryan Ellis had two assists. Juuse Saros (14-6-2 2.59 GAA) gave up five goals on only 29 shots and he had only given up four goals in his previous three starts. #1 G Pekka Rinne (19-14-3 2.49 GAA) may get the go in this game and Nashville has lost three of his last four starts. The Predators have eight players that have at least 10 goals and Arvidsson and Forsberg have combined for 44 goals. This season, the Predators are 18-10-1 at home.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Earlier this season in Detroit the Red Wings beat the Predators 4-3 in OT and they have had their number for the last few seasons. However, Nashville will play well in this game and shore up their defense, which is their strength, but not in the last two games. The Preds will get the W in this one and snap their four-game losing streak to the Red Wings on home ice.

Prediction: PICK Predators

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Both of these teams gave up five goals in their last game, but this game will not see so many goals. That is especially the case for the Red Wings, who have an Under record of 5-2 in their last seven games and an Under record of 4-1 in their last five road games. Look for those trends to continue, as Nashville will win with their defense and the Under is the solid pick for this non-conference game.

Prediction: PICK: Under

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
