The worst defense in the entire league heads to Nashville for a clash with a squad they’ve been destroyed by in recent past. With that being said, the home team Predators have only won 1 out of their last 3 games and were shut out in their last.
The Ducks are currently desperate for a win as they’ve dropped 5 out of their last 6 games. Unfortunately for them, they’re headed to an arena they’ve lost in 7 out of their last 8 games.
Offensively speaking, Anaheim’s getting off just 29.9 shots(26th), resulting in 2.5 goals(30th) on average.
Further adding to their detriment, is The Ducks 31st ranked powerplay, unfortunately made possible by scoring on just 15.2% of their opportunities.
In the defensive zone, Anaheim’s ranked dead last for shots against, and goals against. They’ve brought this into fruition by allowing a monstrous 4.2 goals, on 37.0 shots per game.
Just like the rest of their defense, Anaheim’s ranked last again on penalty killing efficacy. As they’re currently permitting teams to score on 34.6% of their chances.
Struggling goaltender John Gibson (4-12-1) is expected to defend the throne for Anaheim. Worryingly, Gibson’s posting a lackluster 0.890 SV%, and an even worse 4.14 GAA.
It’s no surprise that neither Nashville’s offense nor defense are spectacular in any form. Although they’re still managing to win games, but mainly low scoring outings when they do, to be completely transparent.
In the offensive zone, The Predators are averaging just 2.6 goals, on 30.0 shots per matchup. Lamentably ranking 29th, and 23rd across all teams.
Also, they’re sputtering on the powerplay with a 27th rank, and an efficiency of just 16.7%.
Defensively speaking, Nashville’s allowing 3.2 goals, on 32.5 shots per game. Unfortunately, ranking 18th for goals against, and 19th for shots against.
All that being said, their best ranking is while being tasked with shutting down the powerplay. For example, they’re ranked 11th, by stopping teams an impressive 80.6% of the time.
Luckily for Predator fans, starting goalie Juuse Saros is currently boasting a 3.06 GAA, and a 0.905 SV% while in net for Nashville. To add to this, he’s posting a 7-6-2 record on the year so far.

Free Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators NHL Prediction
In a matchup between teams that rank near bottom of the league in every category, which can we lean on for the best value on Tuesday night? In our opinion, stay away from the moneyline and puckline, and try to look towards the total in this spot.
Reasons being, Nashville is highly inconsistent to trust with such high juice, and you can’t trust Anaheim as a dog either.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: UNDER 6.0 (-110)
After careful consideration of this matchup, we’re relying on these terrible defenses to play a little better than their horrendous offensive counterparts.
