When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Predators to defeat the Coyotes while playing at home. Given the current moneyline odds at -158, I’m placing a wager on the Predators to win outright.

For a puck line prediction, our preference is the Predators to secure a win and cover. Anticipate the Predators to win this one by multiple goals over the Coyotes.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
