The Nashville Predators, fresh off a matchup against the Calgary Flames, continue on through Canada to take on the Edmonton Oilers.
Edmonton will be rested after a night off and will look to get the jump on Nashville in Rogers Place.
After a three-game win streak, the Predators lost a tough game to Vancouver on Tuesday and have a very tough game against the Flames on Thursday night.
The team ranks 21st in the league in goals with 119, and averages just 2.71 goals per game.
A lot of that has been thanks to James Neal, who has 14 goals and six assists on the year. However, he has really struggled recently and hasn’t recorded a single point over his last five games.
Center Mike Fisher has been a very important offensive piece for Nashville. He has 12 goals and 14 assists this season, including a goal and three assists over his last five games.
Left winger Filip Forsberg has been good for Nashville, as well. He has 11 goals and 16 assists this year. Over his last five games, he has two goals.
The Oilers are winners of four out of the last five, including a tough 4-3 overtime win over the Florida Panthers.
Sitting 2nd in the Pacific Division, Edmonton has had a decent year but needs to keep stringing together wins in order to ensure a playoff birth.
The Oiler offense has been the team’s strong suit all season, but the defense leaves much to be desired. Edmonton has given up 125 goals this year, putting the team 16th in the NHL in that category.
The defense has good and bad days, but the inconsistency has really hurt the team.
Leon Draisaitl has been a very important piece for Edmonton. He has 17 goals and 23 assists, including two goals and three assists over his last five games.
On offense, Connor McDavid continues to show why he’s already one of the best players in the world. This season, he has 15 goals and 39 assists. In his last five games, he has a goal and five assists for Edmonton.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Nashville is 1-4 ATS in the last five games
- The Total has gone UNDER in four of Nashville’s last six games on the road
Free Nashville Predators vs. Edmonton Oilers NHL Hockey Prediction:
Edmonton will be well-rested, while Nashville will be on the second night of a back-to-back. With stars like McDavid and Leon Draisaitl going at the Nashville defense, I like Edmonton to take the W.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Edmonton ML
Edmonton has won four and a row and I’d bet the money line that it’ll make it five in a row on Friday night. The Oilers’ money line is a solid bet here.
