When making a puck line pick, we’re backing the Senators to win and cover. Watch for the Senators to win this game by multiple goals over the Predators.

If you’re looking at the the over/under line set at 6.5 goals, our prediction is that this game will stay below that threshold, and we strongly suggest placing a bet on the under.
