Senators vs Predators Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Predators to pick up on a win over the Senators at home. With the moneyline sitting at -143, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Predators straight-up.

For my recommended choice in the puck line, I’m leaning towards the Senators to cover. Even if the Predators secure a straight-up win, this game is expected to be tightly contested, and the Senators should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
