Canucks vs Predators Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Predators to come out with a win against the Canucks while playing at home. Considering the moneyline odds at -116, I’m placing my bet on the Predators to win outright.

For a puck line pick, we are going with the Predators to win and cover. Look for the Predators to win this one by multiple goals over the Canucks.

With an over/under line sitting at 5.5 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
