Predators vs Canucks Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Canucks to take down the Predators at home. With the moneyline currently at -120, I’m placing my bet on the Canucks straight-up.

If you’re looking for my recommendation on the puck line, I suggest taking the Predators to cover. Even if the Canucks manage to win outright, this game is expected to remain competitive, and the Predators should cover the puck line.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 5.5 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
