The home teams have not fared well in this series, but we expect that to change here. The hosts have been the best team in the league all year, while the Winnipeg Jets has been the best team in the league down the stretch of the regular season, also, they are still just 23-23 away from home for the year, while the Predators have gone a very solid 31-16 here at home for the year.
Nashville also has to feel confident about pitching a shutout at Winnipeg on Monday night and Pekka Rinne is more experience than Connor Hellebuyck, which should come into play in a deciding game seven. We will look for a hard-fought battle between division rivals with the Predators coming out on top and moving on to face the Vegas Golden Knights.
The next competitive game which we liked is coming from NHL. NHL action tonight between the teams of Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The Bolts will be playing this game on no rest as they have a game in Chicago Blackhawks a day ago, while the Preds come in off a 4:3 win at home against the Florida Panthers.
The Bolts comes in top position in NHL in scoring at 3.51 gpg, while also ranking 11th in shots taken (32.8 spg) and 3rd position in power play conversions, converting on 23.8% of their chances. The Nashville Predators are playing very well at the moment as they have won their last five games in a row and they have been very good at home where they have gone 16-6 on the year.
The visitors are not looking good at the moment as they have lost five of their last seven encounters and have scored just four goals over their last three rivals, but they still lead the league in points and it’s just a matter of time before they get back on track. It won’t happen in this game, though. Furthermore, they will be playing this game on no rest and we just don’t see them having enough in the tank to take down an impressive Nashville team. Take the Nashville Predators in this one, especially since they have won their last six games at home in this series.
Yesterday we did an amazing winning tip as we thought in the KHL game between Dinamo Riga and Avangard Omsk to have no more than 5 washers in the regular time and we were right about our decision. The next competitive game we choose to predict and make an analyse is going to be from NHL between the teams of Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predator.
Nashville Predators (4-3-2) were dealt their first home loss of the current campaign when the team of Calgary Flames came to Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday to claim a 3:2 win after a shootout. Filip Forsberg (12 points so far this year) scored his 17th marker of the season on a rebound from a shot by Roman Josi (two goals, five points), who netted his own goal just over a minute later. Despite facing the Vegas Golden Knights, who were forced to start their third-string goalie, the team of Chicago Blackhawks (5-3-2) still were not able to overcome the NHL’s newcomers, losing 4:2 at T-Mobile Arena a few days ago.
Despite that both teams have played 18 competitive games in all competitions, the home team remains the favourite to take a victory today but this can happen extremely and difficult for them. For us, the more safe prediction for this amazing contest is over 5.5 goals at the regular time with great value 1.90 odds in Tipico and 888sport.
Today can be the final game from playoffs for Stanley Cup, the most popular tournament in the world. Nashville Predators will duke the team of Pittsburgh Penguins. The game will be held at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. We hardly believe that tonight they will surprise us with amazing goals and the visitors will push their rivals from the beginning of the game.
The Preds have been outstanding on home ice in the finals so far as they completely dominated the team of Penguins in the 2 games at home. Nashville Predators have had in the finals. Look for the Predators to use the home ice advantage and the crowd that has proven to be an awesome difference with communication errors being made by the Penguins in games three and four. Throw in the fact the Penguins are 1-4 in the last five away games and the team of Predators are 4-1 in their last five games at home.
It is easy to call that, the Penguins will win this game. The away team is more effective than their opponents. We think Penguins will record another win here as they are strong candidates for the title. For us, they are the strongest team in the NHL this season and they are playing against a team which do not have much more potential than their opponents. We expect the host team to take a victory.
We are continuing with the NHL Playoff game today. The next game we are going to predict is between the teams of Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators. Both teams are pretty well known as they are both playing in NHL. The game will be held at Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh, USA.
We think that from what we have seen last year the team of Penguins is the better one. We know that this is an important game, but for today we looked at all the games and markets and this game seemed to be the best for predicting. It will be a tough game. As an NHL game, we are expecting both teams to play carefully and wait for their chances. The home team, after all, are playing at home, so they will have a slight advantage here. We do not know how motivated all the players will be but we will see that later in the arena.
Our prediction is the Penguins to win with big goal margin. Unfortunately, there are still no markets for draw no bet but if there are such markets when you are going to bet, we will advise you to use them instead of clear win. The odds are not such high, but the risk is high as well. As we can see the head-to-head games are in favour of Penguins, but as we wrote above, this is a Playoffs game 5 and nothing is so clear. We prefer to play this event Pittsburgh Penguins -1 AH, skybet gave us very attractive odds for this event and we will take it.
Nashville Predators will be on own ice in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, having cut the initial 2-0 series lead the team of Pittsburgh Penguins in half during the previous meeting. Penguins conceded 3 goals in the 2nd period, giving up further 2 goals in the 3rd period.
Usually, they were the better team but they did have enough chances to win the game. In the last third period the team of Penguins start playing more serious but their powers were not enough and they lost the game. Now we are going to see a fourth game which is in Nashville Predators and the Penguins must take it in order.
Nashville Predators are coming in this game as a complete underdogs and we believe on the bookmakers. The clear favourites of the Preds will be highly motivated and very confident of taking the game. Their fans are amazing as well and they will totally dominate in this game. We expect even a game win for Nashville Predators in ordinary time like they did last game against their rivals with astonishing result 5:1 in regular time as well.
Tonight in NHL action, the Stanley Cup Finals resume and the team of Pittsburgh Penguins will fight with the team of Nashville Predators in GAME 3 of their best-of-seven series, with the scene shifting to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Penguins have jumped out to a 2 - 0 series lead with 5 - 3 and 4 - 1 wins so far. The Penguins are 10 - 2 the last twelve games in this series, but the home team is 5 - 0 the last five. The Nashville Predators have been the biggest surprise in the postseason this year so far as they made it all the way to the finals as a number eight position.
The Preds, who are looking to reach their first Stanley Cup Final. We actually, do not know what to expect from this game, because the result is not going to be clear. The better market here is to try and search again for another Under 4.5 goals in Regular Time. The odds are pretty good, so why not.
First ever Stanley Cup Final game for the team of Nashville Predators who was another huge effort by the Western Conference champions. The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to extend their lead to 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Final against the Preds, with Game Two still taking place in Pennsylvania.
Here we are expecting no surprise this time as the team from Penguins must win this game as they are staked at around 2.15 odds to win in the regular time. There is no doubt that they are the better team and we would like to go for them. Surprising or not, this time we are not going to bet on Nashville Predators, we will go after Pittsburgh Penguins. They are the better team and they deserve to win this finals. They faced most dangerous teams in NHL and also even in the game against Preds which they lost they played better.
It is going to be a tough game though. We think that in this game Pittsburgh Penguins will be more motivated to take the win so they can take finally one away win and they can take the lead. We believe that they know their chances, which are not bad and they will be searching for the win on every price.
