Predators vs Canucks Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Predators to take down the Canucks on the road. With the moneyline currently at +136, I’m placing my bet on the Predators straight-up.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Predators winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Predators straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 5.5 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
